Marie's C'est la vie (bad fortune) only got worse. First, she thought that Jacque's had licked her arm over dessert. Now, the checque arrived and the Visa card was declined. What a dilema! Marie had spent the last of the euro in the checkbook on her purse shopping spree. Would they have to wash dishes? After some quick thinking, Marie realized that the boutique was just down the block and she could return her evening bag to pay the dinner checque. Jacque's was not happy about sipping ice water while Marie tried to dig her way out of the mess she had created..............
The sentiment was printed off the computer, the background is a french wine check and was also printed on the computer in sepia tones.
This is an ongoing series of cards. To read the saga of Marie, Jacque's and FiFi start here: Marie's Adventure

Poor Marie!! But since she is in Paris and I am looking at a basket full of laundry, dishes in the sink and a 13 and 20 year with attitudes I am having a hard time feeling sorry for her adventures!! How selfish of me!! LOL The papers and ribbon are fantastic!

I thought Jacques was flipping the bill for this whole deal...why does Marie have to worry about the bill. Wasn't it his credit card? Hmmm....whatever happened to chivalry...seems like to me Marie should have been sippin water while he was scrambling around to get the bill paid. I don't like Jacques anymore! Dump him, get rid of him, send him back to his mother! Find a new beau Marie...
Do I need to go back and re-read some chapters. Sometimes I miss stuff!
