Abraham Lincoln.... in London?

Continuing with our London trip
- look who we found...

Abraham Lincoln, in Parliament Square....

My favourite historical figure.
Yes, I have studied the American Civil War
(and the American Revolution)
for many years....

Lincoln was the 16th President
of the United States....

But, why is he in London?

Using the current sketch over at



The sketch, by Leah Schaeffer....

Papers used - "Portobello Road"

Flowers - handmade from punches
and Distress Ink "Barn Door"....

Leaves are from a Punch Bunch punch...


The pearl flourishes are by Zva Creative....


The flower centre pearls are Martha Stewart....


The butterfly stamp is by 7 gypsies....

Next post will be a wee break
 from London trip.....
