Bon Voyage ....

Hi there!

This is a card I made a couple of weeks ago and haven't had time to blog until now.  I was asked to make a Bon Voyage card for someone leaving to go to Paris for 2 years.  Unfortunately I have been on a spending freeze and haven't bought any new Magnolia stamps for ages and as much as I love some of the new Bon Voyage collection I haven't succumbed to buying any .... yet!!!

So I hunted through my vast collection of rubber and stamped images and came across this super sweet Stamping Bella image which I thought is very Parisian Chic!  I decided to make an awning card to give the feel that these gals are drinking Cafe Lattes al fresco on the Champs Elysee .... well, one can only imagine ...LOL!!!

Anyhow, this is the end result and I have to say I'm really happy with it!  The sentiment was stamped with an alphabet stamp from my stash.

I hope you're all enjoying a fabulous day .... it's a little cool and cloudy here so I think some crafty time may be the order of the day!  Thanks for stopping by and leaving your much appreciated comments - I'm going to get a coffee and sit down and catch up on some blog hopping!!

Take care all!

Danielle, this is darling. I did an awning card before and they're lots of fun. This summer's been so busy for me also. I started a new job and finding the time to blog and craft and work and shop and mother is almost killing me. I'm used to just mothering!! Hope your summer slows down.
Hugs xx
