Merci Beaucoup Card

Merci Beaucoup
Daring Cardmakers has a fun challenge posted called "The World Is Your Oyster." You are to make a card celebrating different countries, cultures, etc. I knew I wanted to join in on this one the second I read about it. I chose "Paris" as my destination. :) Paris has long been a favorite theme of mine to work with. I had gotten some new printed tags by 7 Gypsies in the mail yesterday. One of them had a beautiful vintage Eiffel Tower on it. The patterned paper is by October Afternoon (from their Thrift Shop collection). The alphabet rub-on letters and rubber stamps are by Royal & Langnickel. The embossing folder is by Sizzix (Tim Holtz). The black flower is by Imaginisce. Has your Friday been as busy as mine? Whew, I'm glad to finally get to sit down. :) We called and ordered HBO to be installed on our cable yesterday. The serviceman arrived this morning and installed the "box." Happy that we could watch the third season of "True Blood" premiering soon. We were supposed to have ten different channels of HBO but not all of them were working when I turned the TV on. Now the serviceman has to return. We'll be able to watch the premier Sunday night but it will have to be on HB0 West. This means it will come on three hours later. Guess we will be sitting up late. :) There is a chance we'll get it fixed tomorrow but I'm not betting on that since it is a Saturday. At least some of the channels are working. Thanks for stopping by. :)
