Sunday at home

Hello everybody,

A very warm sunday here, waiting for storm to be honest...Lol!!!

Have spent my day in my house today with Mathilde, first time since a while...Her boyfriend was playing football...And mine was watching it on tv....What a life for us two...Lol!!! so we had a bit of unpriced Mum & Daughter's moment. We finally had time to talk a bit and pick up what we have both missed since 2 months.

We also make a few cards.

Here is one, I have begun a few days ago. I have used a picture from Paulette, the wonderful "owner" of TLC. I have printed it on a glossy photo paper, then glue it on matching blue paper from Crafters Companion.  I made an edge using my "Parisian Accents" from Spellbinders.

For the interior, I have cut 2 layers of papers with my "Label Four"  from Spellbinders, again...Lol!!! For the 1st layer I have used some paper from Paulette, TLC (just in case you couldn't remember...Wink!!!). It is a paper called Paris with some Eiffel Tower on it.  You will find it in different colours, but I wish to try to stay in the same colour scheme so... print the "bluish"one in glossy photo paper again. I put 2 brads on the side and then finishes the card with the other layer in glossy cream paper. 

I  adore that card, and have (stupidly....!!!) shown it to my friend....And she "steal" it....Am so pleased it went so easily. Her nephew is a car racing young man, and it's his birthday tomorrow, so of course when she saw the card she couldn't resist. I hope he will like it, as much as I have liked creating it.

It's always easy to creat great cards when you have so nice picture or papers in "store".

We made a few others but I forget to take picture....So will have to come back again.

Hugs to all of you xx
