Je t'aime.......

Bonsoir ........I definately have a French theme going on this week,I've made a collage card using papers and a stamp from Crafty Individuals, the paper book is called Springtime and a Paris theme stamp CI 260, love the fresh Spring like colours of these papers which also happens to be the challenge over at Crafty Indviduals this month.........Spring. The swirl die is by Joy, love the new ones that have recently come out including a scrummy heart and butterfly. I added turquise and purple foil to the swirls and then heat embossed with Ranger rainbow embossing powder for a lovely glittery effect. I used Broken China and Dust Concord for the background of the image, then spritzed this with Irridescent Gold Glimmer mist before stamping. The border and corner die are from Marianne designs called Anja.The bow is made out of wire, I brought it ages ago at the NEC its like a tube of knitted wire that you twist and tease out to create bows, butterflies or flowers.

The Eiffel Tower is made from gold utee, I dusted the mould with Perfect Pearls before
pouring in the utee. 

Simon Says.....Love is in the air.
My Mums Craft Shop.....It must be Love.
Fab n Funky......Love is in the air.

Hope you are all keeping warm, its still cold here but so far no more snow. Have to tell
you about Ethan on Tuesday. After de-icing the car we went for a walk in the park,
now we avoided all of the frozen puddles of ice until on the return journey back home when
Ethan decided to run up to the biggest one and would he listen when I said no....yep you guessed it
he jumped straight in it, skidded, landed on his bottom and the ice broke and there
he sat in the middle of a deep muddy home he had to have a warm bath,which he thought was fun, well we were playing with bubbles. I had to get hubby to nip round to his house to get a change of clothes. The first thing my daughter said to me when she picked him up later was....."he wasn't wearing that earlier, whats he done"?......its never a quite moment in our house.

Possibly my all time favourite theme is Paris so this is right up my street.
Beautiful but also exudes the bittersweet, possibly the look on her face. A card filled with lovely elements.
Thank you for sharing with us at the Crafty Individuals Challenge.
