Quintessentially British - Vintage Note Cards

Red and blue union jack pennants bunting card
Hello Friends! Thank you so much for your lovely comments (and even purchase offers! lol) on my previous post with the shabby chic bird's nest ATB (Artist Trading Block).

Today over at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L I am sharing a set of 'quintessentially British' note cards I made for my new blogging friend Chel at Sweetbriar Dreams. I 'met' Chel through a Tea Cup Exchange party over at Stephanie's blog The Enchanting Rose. Stephanie and I met through this year's the Grow Your Blog Linky Party - I love how these parties lead to new blogging friendships! :)

Chel's blog is very much devoted to her love of London, especially the Docklands, the place she grew up in. So I wanted this gift to reflect her passion about the London city :). You can find out all the details about my London themed note cards on the Scrapbook Adhesives blog today.

Hi Asia, your cards are so amazing and I love them. Stephanie is such a sweet blogging buddy and I've know her for a few years now and she organizes such lovely tea cup exchanges. Chel is my first blog friend I met when i first starting blogging and she is a doll. I know that Chel is going to just love what you made for her. I love how talented and creative everyone is. Enjoy the weekend.

What a beautiful set of cards. I love this paper! I've done an album with it a few years ago when I went to London. Thank you so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Hugs, Sandra
