It's tickle a teapotter time! I like this time of the month when we get to send our cards to each other. This weeks theme is about traveling, where we'd like to go. Well, I'd like to go back to Paris. My mom & I went there in 2002! So it was an easy decision for me. My sweet cyber friend Susan, One4Joy, sent me these Paris images & the metalic strip. I loved the Eiffel Tower, we went to the top! It's absolutely beautiful lighted at night - it looks like gold!
This was a nice trip down memory lane. I hope whoever gets my card would like to go to Paris too.
This is also for today's CC - navy cajun sky, but I skipped dessert. I also did direct to strip with cajun.
Thanks for stopping by to peek. Special thanks to Susan too.

Everything French going on here. The tower, the script and the metal scroll piece. Beautiful work and it sounds like a memory for a lifetime with your Mom. Thanks for playing the challenge with us today.

I also love Paris. My parents use to take us to Europe every summer and most of the time we landed in either London or Paris so we went there most years. Ah! those were the days. Now that I would have to pay for it I get there infrequently. Love your image and metal strip.

Que c'est beau mon ami! What a perfect place to visit! My DH went abroad several times for free (while on a naval aircraft carrier!) I'm sure that's not the best way to travel, but nevertheless, he's been and I have not. Love the Cajun strip, and the French Script is the perfect bg for the Eiffel Tower, Karen!

My Mother has been to Paris and she said the Eiffel Tower was astounding! I love that little decorative strip of Cajun Craze at the top!!

The more I hear people talking about how much they love Paris, the more I want to go. This is a lovely card, with that image looking like an old-fashioned post-card of the Eiffel Tower. And I love that metal strip -- awesome embellie.
