Bonjour from Paris

Sep 17, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

I decided to attempt the Sunday Sketch over at CPS. I decided to go with the travel theme!

This is my “Bonjour From Paris” post card.

card from Paris

I used my Sizzix post card die cut to make a “postcard”.

This is a view of the postcard-close up

I decided to flip the sketch  on to the side. So my postcard is the panel-slanted.

Instead of the 4th square, I placed the heart tag from Making Memories tag rims.

The images at the bottom are suppose to be like “stamps”, that I made using a hole punch, and some square punches.

39 cent stamps Click for a closer view.

Isn’t this cute? I was SO HAPPY with it! I love PARIS themed stuff so Oh La La was PERFECT for this idea. I also used Simply Sentiments, and L’Amour. All found at Lizzie Anne.

The paper is by DCWV-its a glitterfied paper, that is really pretty! I used Pixie Pink for the pink accent color. My Sakura Glitter pen colored the items and added some sparkle with out going overboard!

The ribbon is by Autumn leaves, and the whimsical swirl and flower was perfect for the style of the set.

I hope they like my submission! You can never go wrong with pink & black 😀

Fun Tag! READ number 5! My word!

Well I was tagged by Kristen  to play this cool name game! If you dont have a blog- try it in the comments section! It was pretty fun! I love reading them all so I hope you put yours in the comments or link us wherever you end up posting it!

Here goes!

1. YOUR ROCK STAR NAME: (first pet & current car) -Kristie Carolla

2.YOUR GANGSTA NAME: (fav ice cream flavor, favorite cookie) This is a hard one! Banana Chip

Not very GANSTA is it? I think Id be a goner.

I love banana ice cream (aka chunky monkey by Ben & Jerrys, and choc chip cookies)

3. YOUR “FLY Guy/Girl” NAME: (first initial of first name, first three letters of your last name) -L-Mea

4. YOUR DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite color, favorite animal) – Purple Butterfly (Ok Im not sure what my favorite animal is! So Im going with my butterflies even though it is an insect!) I can do what I want-its my blog! LOL!

5. YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, city where you were born)-Oh God now everyone will know my middle name! Dolores Lowell.

REAL LIFE SOAP OPERA-HOW I got my middle name-

Dolores was my dad’s sisters name. She was murdered by her husband-who hid in the backseat of her car. She got in and began to drive (my dad was in the car behind them) and he (husband to the sister) popped up from the backseat, and shot her as she was driving, then shot himself. My dad saw the whole thing! Since he was following her. As my dad rushed to her car-even though her husband killed himself,  my dad still began beating him till the police arrived.

It really affected my father as you can imagine as him and his sister were very close. She was a singer for the Hampton Sisters-a while ago. Figure my dad is 15 years older than my mom and is close to his 70’s now.

My mom thought it would be nice to give me his sisters name. It was ALMOST my first name! OH LORD!

Talk about a soap opera eh?

6. YOUR STAR WARS NAME: (the first 3 letters of your last name, first 2 letters of your first) – Meala

8. NASCAR NAME: (the first names of your grandfathers)- Richard Roberts

9. STRIPPER NAME: ( the name of your favorite perfume/cologne, favorite candy) Liz Twizzler

OK I wrote this on Saturday-but forgot to post it! So if its not raining and its not the weekend dont worry about it!  I couldnt access my photo editing so put up the ” Do you know how to Fake it post” instead! I hope you try it and tell me how it works for those of you who havne’t “faked it” yet! LOL!

I was happy to see I got another honorable mention—-> HERE! YEAH! So close yet so far away from winning! LOL! Congrats to everyone! I feel really lucky to even get a mention considering there were over 450 enteries! WOW! The winner herself sent OVER 50! WOW! And people say “I” stamp alot! I do try to stamp daily, but dont think I make 50 cards in a month! Let alone with One/Two sets!

OK back to the post!

so in case you forgot the title was


Or in our case RAIN RAIN RAIN. Noah’s soccer game is cancelled. I’m bummed, cause he was excited to go, and I was excited to watch!

So poor me- instead,I get to stamp! LOL!


I just love the Cat’s Pajamas  clear and swanky sets! As I posted previously, I got all three! I only wish there were tiny snowflakes in the sets. Yes, I do own little snowflakes but wanted to keep with using JUST the CP sets.

When I saw this Chimney image I felt it needed a HOUSE!  So I whipped out my scalloped giga rectangle, trimmed out the soft sky piece. I also crimped a piece of vellum cardstock, and attched under the scallop roof for the house! Having the set be clear really enabled me to stamp the dog perfectly onto the roof WITHOUT stress or a stamp-a-ma-jig. So that was nice.

I saw the idea for icicles HERE. I didnt use the technique, but the idea was really cool, and perfect for my project-so I just used my stickles instead! I also thought it would be a cool thing to share, since I came across it and was WOW’ed!

This card took maybe 20 minutes. Not too shabby! Another great winter hello card!
