Un petit peu de Paris!

Hi There! It has been over a week since my last visit to Blogland, due to Ofsted at work, but I am not complaining as it means I can truly relax over half term! Before you ask, I can't say how we did until the report is published in about three weeks time. Apparently they have downgraded schools for revealing the result before they should!
 So, onto my cards. A few weeks ago I paid a visit to the Range to buy this sweet Paris Eiffel tower stamp by Dovecraft, as I has seen it on Ruth's blog and knew several people who would love cards with it on! My last Eiffel tower stamp fell apart last time I used it. When one of those friends said she wanted an unfussy valentines card for her hubby, I made the card above. I added the inkylicious delicate vine stamp in bundled sage distress ink and the waltzing mouse sentiment. I am entering this into this weeks Less is More, where the theme is Love and one layer.
I couldn't just make one though, so here is a second, on a square card this time and using spun sugar and shaded lilac DI, and a woodware sentiment.
very quick and simple, and already the stamps have paid for themselves!
Thanks for looking and I will look forward to visiting you this week!
