We'll Always Have Paris


I've always wanted to see Paris. I'd love to sit along one of the cafes and sip really strong coffee, wear a beret and watch all the people walk by. I've always loved the flavor of fashion, cosmetics and glamour. Since I have no idea as to when I might make it there, I visit every chance a I get in my mind.

Our Design Team challenge for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design store blog this week was to create a Valentine's Day card without using a card specifically designed for Valentine's Day. I reached for my Weekend Poster from Rubber Romance. She has such an elegant, beautiful line to her. She's all dressed up and I think it's to go and celebrate with her someone special. The paper is from The Sweet Collection from DCWV and she's colored with copics and I used Bella Baubles in Oyster and a Blue Moon Charm on her to add that last finishing touch to her. I adore her!

Stop by Follow Your Heart, the store's blog, and take a look at what my talented Design Team Sisters came up with. You'll not be disappointed! Also make sure you stop by PCP and take advantage of some great Web candy that Susana is offering. Who can pass up the opportunity to win a great Rubber Romance stamp signed by Robyn, the Owner/Illustrator? Good luck!

Paris, is nice and its busy and slightly exciting but i like the quieter parts of France where you can sit in a tiny cafe and just take in the surrounding beauty. France in general is so beautiful and amazing.
I love your work, its ver different and i ove the vibrancy
