London Calling

I know crafters are loving the new Penny Black wanting the double decker bus or the mini but I love the telephone box and its perfect for LIM sketch.
But I still layered my Hedgie inside my box. I have three layers, first it the whole image but I had to cut off the mouse. The next layer is Hedgie and the phone. The top layer I very carefully cut out the windows, one slip of the knife and your window is gone. I then stuck on acetate to give it a look of glass, using sticky fixers stuck on top. The roof was another layer but its from the image that I cut out Hedgie so technically is still three layers!

Thanks a lot for your post. I want to say that the price of car insurance differs a lot from one insurance plan to another, mainly because there are so many different issues which contribute to the overall cost. By way of example, the brand name of the auto will have a large bearing on the charge. A reliable older family auto will have a lower priced premium compared to a flashy racecar.
