Cards, cards and more cards!

I'm (still) amazed at how quickly time passes... It seems like just yesterday that I posted pictures of my home decor fabric clutches, when in actuality I posted them three weeks ago! Life has a way of getting in the way sometimes, so I apologize for not posting as regularly as I would like to in my "ideal world". You know this world, don't you? It is the world where you can have cappuccino every morning, stamp or sew for 2 hours without interruptions, get a bit of exercise to work out the kinks from sitting at the desk, have a little nap followed by another coffee or tea in the afternoon, post some of the fun bits that were made in the morning... Aaaaahhh (sigh), if only!

Well, I have been busy in spite of not posting! After a long weekend in Paris last weekend to celebrate our 16th anniversary, I came back feeling inspired and ready to work. It is such an incredible city and would take weeks, not 4 days, to fully explore. One incredible find was a whole area devoted to fabric stores...amazing to see shop after shop stocked full of different fabrics, notions, ribbons and trims...heaven! Unfortunately, I only had a short time to look around and have to admit, I was overwhelmed with the selection, so I only came away with zippers and one piece of fabric.  Guess I'll have to go back again one day :-)! Here's a little collage I made of pics around the Champs-Elysee and Arc de Triomphe.

In honor of Paris, I've been making several cards this week with the Eiffel Tower, bicycles (they are everywhere in Paris) and some vintage, shabby chic ones. Thought I would share a few of my favorites with you.


Have a great week! I'll try to post pics of my recent cards and bags to my Flickr site soon.
