Paris is Always a Good Idea

I can't believe that it's Wednesday again already! That means it's time for another Little Red Wagon challenge. Heather is our hostess this week and she's chosen "Off we go!": create a vacation-themed project.


My favourite vacations are those where I see sites and experience new cultures - so I picked a Parisian-theme for my card. I've been to Paris a few times and hope to spend some extended time there when we retire. I started by cutting my mat with a silly stitched die and then used blue, white and red paint to watercolour the background, adding some white splatters once things had dried. The word art is a Silhouette cut file (with black gems for the dotted i's) and I finished things off with a little bunny drinking her latte.



Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created and then link up your own vacation-themed project!

I've been to Paris once, but I want to go to The Netherlands now. I remember when we went to Paris...they were all eating bread.

This is so cute Kate! I really want to try the Zig pens and learn to water color. You did such a nice job on this cutie! You have inspired me to go and give it a try :-)
