Today the Tuesday TeaPot Party takes us to Paris...
What a fabulous idea!
Thanks, Fran (philsmom), for the challenge and a chance to reminisce. And thanks for the bit of French as well!
I decided this gave me a great chance to get a bit ahead for a change, and make a card for a grandson who is now in college. He was one of 3 grandkids we took to Paris over ten years ago, so he will appreciate the memories. (And yes, we even flew first class due to storm delays and changes in schedules! Yahoo...!)
This is one of the first stamp sets I bought, and then I realized I had little opportunity to really use it - and I have no idea who made it.
I wanted to do this challenge to use plaid - makes a good masculine bg, but I had to make my own...: http://doyoustackup.blogspot.com/
And since making my own plaid BG is a new technique for me, it should qualify for: http://paperprettiesblog.blogspot.com/

I probably have too many colors, but I wanted the bleu, blanc et rouge (blue, white and red) to be the main ones.
Oh, yes - dh suggested the phrase I used. Since it is for our grandson it is quite appropriate - and when dh gives a suggestion I can use, it is nice to take advantage. He is SO supportive!

What an adorable card for your grandson! It sure is nice having your DH support! My DH is my biggest supporter and is even going to a scrapbook convention with me this week-end so he can carry around all the great stuff I'll buy!

This is a wonderful card to use for your Grandson's birthday and rekindle those great memories!! I love that you did your own plaid bg and your great vintage stamps!! Tell the DH his sentiment is "spot on"!
