Just Happy Card & More Paris!

Back in London! The train ride back yesterday was just as nice as the one over there. We had some breakfast at a café before heading to the station, Nutella Crepes and a delicious latte. Juliette picked us up from my uncle Bruce’s and we stopped at Watford Harlequin Shopping Center so Brian could pick up some things for the girls. There was a HobbyCraft there too so I had to stop in there. I was good, I didn’t get too much stuff, just things that I can’t get back at home! Today, Tracey and Jules have a little surprise for us so we are off to somewhere in a little bit! LOL!

Here are a few more pictures from Paris before we get to the card!

Now on to my card for today, just a simple card! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I took a piece of Solar White 80lb and drew some diagonal lines across it with a pencil so that I would more easily be able to line up my stamping and die cutting. The stamps and die are from the Hero Arts Happy Stamp & Cut Set. First I die cut the negative happy from the panel. Some Hero Arts Pool and Wet Cement Ink is used to stamp the happy and the dots. So that color behind the negative happy would match I used a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Pool Ink to color a piece of Solar White and that is adhered to the base with SNAIL while the panel is adhered with 3M Foam Tape. Like I said, very simple card but also very mailable! I hope that you enjoyed the Paris pictures and my card for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your Friday! 🙂

Bonjour! I woke up in Paris this morning! 😀 We took the Eurostar from St. Pancras yesterday morning, a very nice smooth quick ride over to Paris. It took two hours and 15 minutes exactly. When we arrived we went straight to the hotel and dropped off our bags and then found the Metro and made our way over to the Eiffel Tower. Before heading up we stopped and had lunch at a café. It was nice to sit on the sidewalk and watch all of the bustle of the city.

The Eiffel Tower was great! You can go all the way to the top and that’s just what we did, 280 meters to be exact! You get a fantastic view of the entire city. I took a bunch of pictures to share with you!
