Another busy week! I am so caught up with making Teddies and Baby Blankets that the time just flies by. I did make time to finish my ATCs and am now moving on to making a card and some ATCs.
I have found one of my Creative Stamping magazines (from last year) so that I can glean some inspiration for my card swap - Summer Holiday Theme.
The printed photos on the right are for my ATC swap - Bridges Theme. I joined in a similar swap last year but only used photos of Paris Bridges, this year I thought of using some Birmingham Bridges!
I searched for some photos of bridges in Birmingham and was pleasantly surprised to see such a variety. The first bridge was built back in the 1800s and still stands in Cannon Hill Park, which is much used for events. The picture below that was built in 1711 and is known as the ZigZag bridge over in the north of Birmingham. The viaduct bridge is in the middle of an industrial estate which was being developed when the photo was taken. The top two bridges are over one of the many canals in Birmingham out by the University which was built in the 1800s, one of the first Unis in England. I just love the photo of the bridge in the centre of Birmingham, such an unusual angle of a great bridge, again built in the 1800s.
This photo shows the bridge as it would normally be seen.
I must admit that I didn't know we had so many interesting bridges here in Birmingham, I spent an interesting couples of hours researching this theme!!!
I hope to spend some time at the weekend turning the ideas in my head into the reality on paper ....... we shall see.....
Off to make some visits now while Little Soldier is asleep, see you soon and if not ...... have a good week.
