Greetings From Paris..........

Hello........No I'm not in Paris......mores the pity!!! I'm posting a card using the JustRite set Greetings From Paris.  You will also see this card over at the Scrapbook Boutique Blog, along with all the details.

JustRite stamps have been a favourite of mine for a while and now with their range of cling stamps it's so easy to use them.  Evelyn has a good range of these sets as well as some with matching dies if you're keen to try them.

What a lovely card! Thought you had sprung a surprise on us and taken off to Paris -- oh well, if you can't be in Paris, the beach is a pretty good second choice!
