April Rudolph day - Christmas shoes


It's time for Rudolph Day at Sarn's blog, where she would like us to make two christmas cards. I'm a bit late posting as we went away to London Friday/Saturday.

We saw Mama Mia on Friday night which was fabulous, so much better than the film! IMO!
Then yesterday we went to the Tower of London, which I went to when I was very little and could only remember being in a dark room looking at the crown jewels whilst being hurried along. Well, there is sooo much more to it than that, what a truly fabulous and educational day out. They now have a conveyor belt to take you by the jewels too, so no loitering!
I had it all planned out to get back to the hotel and pick up the bags before heading for the train. What I didn't count on was none of the buses stopping because they were full up. So after 20 mins we started to walk, but there was a diversion and the buses we could have caught had been diverted - eventually walked as far as Fleet Street and managed to get on a bus back to the hotel get our bags and catch another bus to the train station. Thankfully we made it but not without a little bit of stressing out from me, so a nice relaxing craft day today I think.
Both my cards this month have a shoe theme, the top one is bugaboo, which I printed and cut out with my silhouette and the bottom one is from Pink Petticoat mounted onto a pre scored glitter card.

I so much prefer the heels in the 2nd one, as i could actually wear them :-).

Sounds like you had an absolutely fabby time in London and i too prefer the live stage show to the movie, but then it has got one major plus - Pierce Brosnan, Luv Sam x
