Oh To Be In Paris CTC#269 Week 2

This week, and next at CASE-ing The Catty we are CASE-ing our favourite retiring bundle and I have to confess that I only received Parisian Beauty Bundle on Monday this week! I was so sure it would be included in the Annual catalogue that I'd put off ordering... oh, dear! What if they'd sold out?

The card at top left with 'amour' attached to the other sentiment and laying over the Eiffel Tower is my inspiration. The blue looks quite vivid, it is a retired incolor from 2006.2007 I think from the pack I found it in. I'd have used the retiring Blueberry Bushel if I'd had 12" x 12".

This picture was taken at dinner up the Eiffel Tower a few days prior to our 36th wedding anniversary. Even though we shared a table with 3 other couples, completely unknown to us until then, we had a very pleasant dinner.

It is actually a large cardboard postcard which has hung on my noticeboard for 7 years and now I've finally scrapped it!!! After dinner we trooped down to the jetty for our romantic cruise down the Seine, which we agreed was wonderful, but best of all was arriving back to see the Tower twinkling away in all its glory. A total surprise to me and a very special memory.

The lovely Monique follows this week...

We share our projects to inspire you to create and send cards. It would be wonderful if you CASE-d the Colours of the Ornate Garden Suite and shared your card or other project on our Facebook page.

I'd love you to choose my online shop to purchase from, use the Host Code when asked at check out, & I will send you a gift, along with a handmade card. It's extra hard at the moment to run an online business so any help you give by ordering is greatly appreciated. The items listed below were used in my project above, and link to that item in my online shop.
