Spring in Paris

Hello blog followers and friends.  A special hello to Karin my newest follower.  Thanks to all my followers for your support and to everyone who is kind enough to take the time to leave me a bit of sunshine.  

Spring is still being a bit sluggish here.  Things are starting to bloom and bud but it's a bit chilly again today, and wet, so a perfect day to craft.......

The background for this card is handmade paper in a chocolate brown with a cream print.  I used the Travel to Paris stamp from Crafty Individuals and one of my favourite Sizzix bigz dies Poodle. The fluffy stuff is vivelle, which is a bit like felt but with more texture, from Craft Creations.  Googly eyes and a necklace of sticky gems.   The collage detail is cut from a piece of Prima paper, the Lyric collection.  I only got these yesterday so pleased to be using them already.  Very pretty papers.  

I thought the sentiment and the collage elements perfectly fitted with the travel to Paris stamp.  Spring in Paris.  How romantic. 

Entering this for

Have a great day everyone and thanks for dropping by. 


  1. Great card, the fluffy poodle looks at home in Paris, lovely stamp and papers. Spring is struggling here too, just a few buds peeping their heads out, no bluebells this year but a lovely show of primroses.

  2. Great card, Gail, with all of your elements perfectly French--especially that oh-so-cute Poodle! That handmade paper is absolutely lovely! Bravo on all fronts!
