I was planning to go to a fabricsmarket today, but it hasn't stopped raining since about 11 o'clock, so wasn't happy about it...
Since it was raining I was going through some photos I took last year and came by these 2, made in Paris Gare du Nord, while I was waiting for the Thalys bringing me back home.
Really love all that candy, but could control myself (for once that is!! *lol*) for not buying any candy, but took some photos instead.

I made 16 of these cards, 16 of another card and have to make so much more... but I love it and this layout is very simple, so I'm ready before Christmas *lol*
At Tessa's forum I was challenged by Carlien and her challenge for me was "only use cardstock and patterned paper".
Well... I can tell you I only used patterned papers!!
I was also able to use my punches, so I used my Quickutz-dies for the name of my friend and used 2 punches to create the scalloped border at right.
I wanted to use American Crafts papers, as you can use the front and the back (one colour, perfectly matches the patterned side).
So here's my layout for the challenge....
A close-up... Here you can see I put some 3d-tape underneath my title, and also get up the sides of the "flowers". Cut them all out individually from the patterned paper. Loved it!!

Will not go into details, but people who know me, know what I mean.
I've been making loads of cards yesterday (16) and today (got items ready to make another 16, just have to put glue on and put them together).
They are clean & simple, but I just so love them!!
Also made a layout today, so these two days have been really productive. :)
In between I also did my household and did grocery shopping as some people are coming over tomorrow for a workshop I will give at my place.
Love it!! They wanted to do it for a long time, so tomorrow it's going to happen.
Will show some photos of the layout I made tomorrow and some sneak peaks for the cards.

I'm also challenged at the forum for the following thing:

If you know me I really like to work with those 2 items, so it will be great!! Have to make this challenge before Saturday so I can take it with me, as we have a forumday over at Tessa's and I will be giving a great little workshop. Can't spoil much, but I just love it!!!

Made the photos at Sacre Coeur in Paris during my 2,5 hours visit last Summer. I wanna go back next year, but then for about 3-4 days.
