Oh I Say, Oh La La

Morning Peeps,

I do hope you enjoyed the Simply Sassy Hop yesterday and if you haven't yet been on it you have until tomorrow evening to complete it, and as there are only 6 of us, its a real quick one!

It't my turn for inspiration on the Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy Blog and it's hard to top the amazing creations that the DT put on for you yesterday but here goes...... As you will see I'm back to my Tracy style, lots of everything, lol......

This fabby stamp I think is my favourite in this set and I can see her on a forthcoming Anniversary card, but she screams Paris and Love  to me so I have gone with the Paris theme and added an Eiffel Tower stamp on accetate in the background and also a film strip, love this as an embellishment, oh and a little postcard, cos although she lives in France she is on holiday in Grand Paris.

I have coloured her using all the "C's" Copics, and the flower using G82, G40 and V17, V15, V12

It's my turn for the tutorial on Thursday and I have a real treat for you, calorie free of course, so don't forget to pop back.

I'm just off to do the hop but thought I'd have a look here first. The usual Tracy style definitely &thoroughly interesting too with your vintage colouring. Love the way you've coloured the rose in lilac The film strip looks brilliant & I do like your little story about her. The green swirls are a lovely addition too. Amazing how you get so much on it & I definitely think this is your natural style rather than the Less Is More.
