Au revoir

Thank you, all my followers and visitors, for going on this blog journey with me. It's time for me to bid you all ado ... as I turn my time, energy and passions to the "next big thing" or two or three.

I plan to keep this blog "alive" in cyberspace and not delete it, but this will be my last post.

I also plan to periodically visit other blogs that focus on Paris and France, because the City of Light and my experiences there will always be near and dear to my heart, as well as all the wonderful things I've learned from my friends here at Five Months Until Paris.

Until we meet again ...

In Front of The Louvre, Part Deux

I've repeated this scene more than once on my cards; maybe it's because I love it so. It's based on a photo I took in front of the Louvre last September.

The Louvre is so immense and filled with so many treasures, it would be difficult to take them all in on one afternoon's visit to the Paris museum. And since I am in Pennsylvania and the Louvre is thousands of miles away, I keep up with the museum's exhibits on Facebook ... and you can, too.

You can follow the Musee du Louvre in French or English - or both.

Of course, there must be an Eiffel Tower ...

I am so excited to announce that I've finally have some Paris-inspired cards available at my Honeygo Beasley Cards shop on Etsy, and more are to come.

 This one features a photo I took outside the Louvre.
 And of course, there must be an Eiffel Tower card.
This is a small, stylized Eiffel Tower card. I'd like to make some more that are a little more realistic and some that are even more jeweled up!

Here's another rendition of my French Croquembouche wedding cake card.
 It is sooooo poofy and creamy with billows of white fabric, I want to eat it.
 It even has a tiny Eiffel Tower on top!

More of my designs to come ... this is just a start. Tell me ... how do you like them? Is there anything special you'd like to see?

How do you like it?

Next, I am going to make some jeweled Eiffel Towers, Marie Antoinette shoes, and other pretty Paris-inspired card designs. Can't wait to share them with you!
