Bonjour Mon Ami! Friends with Flair!

I like Friday for lots of reasons, but mostly because it's Friends With Flair over on the Unity blog.  Link up your Unity creations and join in the inspirational fun!  You'll be hooked!  I'm keeping this short as I have three posts going up today.  I suddenly feel like I spend as much time blogging as crafting.  Life has changed! 

Today's project comes with a story.  Many of you who read my blog know I work in the activity department of a nursing home.  This week, one afternoon, we took a figurative, "Trip to Paris".  I used my Cricut Expression 2, the "Summer In Paris" cartridge, & Unity stamps to make some table decorations for our party.  I spent Saturday morning cutting out Eiffel towers, embossing Eiffel towers, and stamping "Bonjour" sentiments.  Here's what our table decorations looked like for Wednesday's party:


I used the Sweet Lace background stamp from Market Street Stamps on the card, and the Unity Dec 2012 KOM for the Eiffel tower and the "bonjour" on both the card and the tower.  I made 6 of the towers to decorate up the room with cards on either side.  I wanted the tower on the card to really sparkle, so I embossed it with Donna Salazar Mix'd Media Inxz in pewter, then used Judi Kins psychedelic embossing powder over the top.  It is REALLY sparkly.

I hope you enjoy today's FWF entry.  If you have time, please scroll down to my other two posts, I'm proud of my projects in both of them and would love your sweet comments.

For everyone that participated in "Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop" last weekend, thanks so much!  The prizes were mailed out yesterday.  So if you were a winner, happy mail is heading your way.  Thanks for visiting!  Au Revoir and merci boucoup!
