Fab Friday 72 & the London Eye

Hello and a happy Friday to you! Brian and I did a lot of wandering around London yesterday. Our first stop was the London Eye, that huge ferris wheel that lets you see all of London on a nice day and it was a very nice day indeed! We actually got lucky and when we went to get on line the guy there moved us over to the quick one and we were on in five minutes. You really can see so much from up there and it takes about 30 minutes to go all the round. The first thing that you notice is Big Ben…

Next up is Charing Cross Station…

When we left we walked across Westminster Bridge and got this nice photo of the Eye…

I’ll have some more pictures for you tomorrow!

Today is a Fab Friday and we have a sketch for you this time…

Fab Friday 72

I stayed very true to the sketch, I haven’t used a doily in really long time! LOL! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Blushing Bride. A Tea Lace Paper Doily is adhered to the card with SNAIL and across that is a piece of EK Success Wood Sheet and a strip of Adhesive Cork. I cut a piece of the Crate Paper Kiss Kiss 6×6 Paper Pad with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles and adhered that to the doily with Foam Tape. For the heart I inked a piece of Solar White 80lb with some Simon Says Stamp Teeny Bikini Ink using a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool. It’s cut out with the Memory Box Stitched Hearts Layers Dies and adhered to the card with some more Foam Tape. I stamped the greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Locking Hearts Photopolymer Stamp Set in Simon Says Stamp Khaki Ink on the bottom right of the card and added a few Pretty Pink Posh Ballerina Pink Iridescent and Sparkling Clear Sequins to finish the card. I really like the softness of the pink with the woodgrain, it makes for a nice contrast! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch challenge! Head on over to the blog and check out the rest of the Design Team’s projects and enter your take on the sketch in the gallery! Thank you so much for visiting today and I wish you all a very good Friday! 🙂

  1. When we were in London, we were lucky to stay in the Marriott right next to the Eye have a great trip, thanks for “taking us along ” virtually! Brings back memories!

  2. Way cool pictures of London, and a beautiful card. I like that stamp with your initials on it too.

  3. You guys did have amazing weather yesterday. I guess it was one of the three days per year that it does not rain there. haha. I know, it’s a misnomer. Now…for the card…as freaky as this may seem, two days ago I pulled out the SAME exact doily to use on a card!! No, have not made it yet but it is sitting on my table. Great minds…never mind. LOL

    1. We did have good weather and no, it doesn’t rain here all the time! Yes, great minds indeed. Now go and make the card and enter it! LOL! Miss you!

  4. Oh Justin – your photos are magnificent! Now the next time your with the Queen, please pass on my congratulations on her two beautiful great grandchildren and, try not to spill any tea. LOL

    Fantastic card today. The best I’ve seen for Valentine’s Day in a long, long time. I especially like your saying from Simon Stamps. AND, it was nice to see a card in pink as we prepare for breast cancer awareness month in October.

    Keep taking those fabulous photos and having a fantastic trip. I wish I was there with you but I’ll settle for enjoying London from your view point. Take care and keep having fun. Love and hugs, XO 🙂

  5. Great pics and commentary as always but from a whole new place! I think your card is so pretty, especially the Kiss Kiss paper. The cork and wood go just right with the softness of the other elements. Thank you for letting us live vicariously through you! What fun and we don’t have to worry about rain. Be safe and have more fun!!! Nancy B

  6. Fabulous photos indeed! And your card today is gorgeous. Even though pink is not a color I gravitate towards, this one is really really nice. Continue to have fun and enjoy. Visiting London through your eyes…..

  7. This card is beautiful, simple elegant gorgeous. I want to CAS it! gorgeous pictures, great view. im deadly afraid of heights so I would never go up there but the view is priceless. And gorgeous weather

  8. Thank you so much for sharing your photos! I was fortunate enough to live in England for 5 years and consider it my 2nd home. I have some amazing British friends (also SU Demos) and your pics made me feel a little homesick ? I can’t wait to see more pics and hear about your adventures ?

  9. When my husband and I were watching TV yesterday, I saw a picture of London and asked him if that round thing was a ferris wheel. It looked so out of place to me. What a coincidence to learn today that it’s a sightseeing ride. Thanks so much for sharing your pix. You’re a *great* photographer, Justin. Cute card, too!

    1. Yes, the London Eye is a great way to get see the city from a bird’s eye view El! So glad that you enjoyed the pictures and the card! 🙂
