Penny Black - Bingo - and a BIG Cat

Well that was an interesting journey into work!  We live on a large housing development with loads of side roads and cul-de-sacs which, of course, never get gritted or salted so the snow and ice hang around for days.  There I was this morning, all rugged up and warm with my hiking boots on to make the trek to the bus stop, it was a sight to behold I can assure you.  When the bus gets into town, hardly a speck of snow to be seen - I must have stuck out like a squirrel on a birthday cake!  Never mind, I was warm and upright!

PENNY BLACK AND MORE AT ALLSORTS are playing Bingo for their February challenge, but Bingo with a twist - it is colours - what a fabbie idea!

I've gone for the diagonal option of Brown, White and Kraft and a very CAS card

Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image  Penny Black London Collection - Houses of Parliament
Medium  Tim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers) - Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap
Sentiment  Personal Impressions
Extras  Brown cardstock from stash

I am really liking these architectural stamps and in fact (don't tell Toad) I ordered four out of the five.  The only one I didn't go for was the London Eye as I felt it was too limiting in its use.  Although thinking about it now, it would make a brilliant ferris wheel for a carnival card.

Big Cat In The Kitchen

Funny how you don't realise how big something is when you see it every day - until you see it from a different viewpoint

Hugs, Sxx

That's one big moggy Squirrel, but lots of lovely fur to snuggle into.

And what a bad influence you are with the London Collection, there was me trying to stick with just a couple (as if). But a super card you have created with it.

Thank you so much for joining in with our Bingo theme at Penny Black and More this month, good luck and hope to see you again.
