Sending Love and Warmest Wishes .......



What a horrible day it is here - gales, rain and dark skies. It was the same yesterday and very cold too, so thoughts came to mind of the current Frilly and Funkie Challenge to bring warmth to those feeling the chill.  I have a friend in France going through a bit of a hard time at the moment so I decided to make a card for her with memories of our lovely holiday in Paris a couple of years ago.  



I had a quick search before going to bed for papers and stamps Paris related so yesterday morning all I had to do was put it together. It is now in the post and I am sure it will bring those happy memories back for her.


And being Paris related it fits in very nicely with the Artistic Stamper Challenge this month "Love is in the Air".  

So thank you Rebecca at Frilly and Funkie and Jennie at Artistic Stamper for two great challenges. It has been a great treat for me this month to get back to doing some challenges and I have enjoyed it very much.  

Have a great weekend x

Beautiful card, love the colours and what a fab idea to use the tags upside down!

P.s.Made 2rolled flowers an hour ago when I got back from work.
I wanted to do it before I forgot how!( read your blog last night).
They do look nicer distressing the edges-don't have a distress tool so used edge of scissors
