Hello everyone, my story will be brief this morning, Pierre is coming back home today and I want to have a little surprise for him. No, I'm not going to tell you what it is. (smile)
Anywho...here is what happened to Lilette, the little mouse you see riding on Sabine the snail's back. Oh yes, by their names you must get they are French, right. Lilette is riding on her friend Sabine today, they are going for a shopping spree in Paris. On her way, she sees a rather big gathering of ladies having tea. Being the French lady she is, she salutes them politely. Sabine notices they are mostly Americans, but she spots a pretty Irish lady, sitting with a beautiful tanned skin woman,(that's me LOL) who in turn answers: "Bonjour, belle journée!" (which means Hello, what a beautiful day!) Lilette is surprised and then invited with Sabine to join the group, because that's what the teapot ladies do. SO here is the link if you want to join us for a la-di-dah teapot in France today, hosted of course for more than a year now by our own sweet and nutty Cindy (MotherMark):

This is my comment! OMG! You made me giggle! I love your story and I feel so like a hero today for saving your French buddies! Honestly, it was a blessing as those Tour de France racers are ruthless, want to win no matter what! Your card is so cute with the little mouse riding the snail. We sure seem to get a multitude of animals at our tea parties! Animals...hhmm.....in more ways than one! Giggle!
I love that you came again today and I loved that you combined it with Judys challenge! Is so fun! Bonjour, Peggiamore! Snort!

I can hardly do one challenge and you combine three. Now that is impressive. And you used French in your note! So happy to have Lilette and Sabine join us for tea( I think.) To think we saved their lives!! The pink gingham bkgrd. is perfect for your cute image.

Who would even KNOW there is an image of a mouse on a snail like that?? I guess Penny Black has it all!! I love your gingham background, and the pretty border on the bottom. This card is just beautiful. What a great story too. You girls with such imaginations!!

*bonjour, belle journee* --now THAT's a french phrase that i can use [i can't imagine *peloton* ever coming in handy!]... i can see that the bikers may not bother to dodge a snail in the road, but a mouse?! yikes!
this one is so cute! i love your coloring, your pink gingham dp and lilette et sabine! [no, i'm only fluent in anglais, i had to ask my daughter how to spell *and* in french] ;) ~K
