Happy WOYWW all! As you can tell by my desk (organized crafter as ever) I have a French theme going on today, one of my fave subjects for card making. I do have to reel myself on this subject as I do love France and indeed all things French. But today is a special day if your French as it's Bastille Day a national holiday, Viva La France!
I think the fascination started from being quite young and dearly wanting to visit Paris! I finally got there on my 4oth Birthday (better late than never then) & so began the love of all things French. Since then I have visited France, especially Provence & Cote D'Azur a number of times, I will be going again in a few weeks, so already have my shopping list sorted out, oooo the craft shops are great as too are the flea markets. Last year I came home with a load of vintage ribbon & some great stamps too.
The second pic today is getting ideas for what I thinking about doing and the first pic is putting things together. Here on my desk I have two sets of stamps in Tin's by Cavellie & co I am using, also to the left there are a pack of labels from Kay & Co. On the right is a new Papermainia Rose Garden pad. Hope to have what I made from this on here later today. Happy Nosing & I will have a butchers at your desks later! Have a great day all!
