The French Connection

As a crafter I am given the very important mission of keeping my mum stocked with plenty of cards. That's great when you live in the UK as it is the main country in Europe for sending greetings. Not so great when your mum want the cards with the sentiments written in French... So when my brother asked me what I wanted for my Xmas present, I asked for vouchers for a French Scrapbooking shop where I knew I could find some stamps in French. All that for my mum! How nice am I?!


First a wedding card. It says "A beautiful story which start with two people and will end as a family".


This is a card I actually designed for last week's LIM challenge (using up scraps of paper). Sadly I missed the deadline as I ran out of time... It says "Can't wait to see you, Can't wait to be reunited".


This card was for last week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge but again, I missed the deadline... It says "just to let you know Darling that I miss you".


Now finally a card I am entering in time! I just designed this card for this week's Less Is More challenge which is to use Neutral colours. I decided to go for a one layer creation although it wasn't specified. It is all done using stamps. It says "We often think of you and we miss you dearly". All the French stamps are of the brand Kesi'art. I love this brand! You can purchase their products from those retailers.

Gorgeous cards.. really simple and striking. I love the sentiments in French too - it's worth checking out Stampin' Up! if you need more sentiment stamps as they do all their stamps sets in a choice of English, French and German. :)
