Paris

I have always loved Paris.  At a very young age, my mum told me about going to Paris with my nana to shop for her wedding trousseau.  How fun would that be? Of course, it's much easier to get to Paris when you live in England than the states!  But back on topic, I also loved little things about Paris (again inspired by my parents).  My dad always signed cards to my mum, "J'et aime."  So when I saw these aMuse stamps above I had to buy them. It is a great set for layering.  

And the card below I made without any stamps.  Two very different cards, but I love the Paris theme on both of them!

  3. Paris is such a gorgeous city and your cards are perfect. I like the first one best. I think it is the kind of sepia effect that attracts me to it.

  5. oh, who doesn't love Paris? The city of love? On my bucket list for sure along with Monet's Garden :) What a stunning stamp of the Eiffel tower...I have a die cut of it, but no stamp that I really love :) So Blogger has been posting for you? I've had no scheduled ones post properly for a week now! What's on the agenda for today?

  9. Oh, Lynn, these are absolutely stunning! So much to love about all that stampy goodness on the first and your stunning, embossed medallion on the second. Wish you could've joined us, with these beauties, at Papercraft Star this week. Sigh. Hope you're having a spectacular time visiting Nana! Hugs!
