Artistic Etchings Eiffel Tower Card



My favourite new stamp set, Artistic Etchings, contains my favourite stamp - the Eiffel Tower.

I remember seeing the Eiffel Tower for the first time IN REAL LIFE many years ago... it was a special anniversary for the tower and they had people jumping from the top with pretty coloured parachutes... of course I didn't know about this at the time and saw it on the TV in the little hotel in Paris that evening... I remember thinking... I'm in Paris and I missed that!!! What a spectacle it was on the TV!


I added some brads... and did some sponging...

Vanilla ribbon looks a bit funny here but the music paper is vanilla and black - might use a different ribbon for the next one!


Treasured Moment: This week continues to be exciting... not just with Rozzie's news - she's been very nauseous today poor kid - but today I picked up my new car! I'll take a pic tomorrow to show and tell.
