Nights in Paris

JUST FOR FUN... So apparently, I was going through some things and had Paris on the brain.  I'll admit that ARTISTIC ETCHINGS and TRAVELS ABROAD are two of my favorite throwback stamp sets, but I didn't really sit down intending to make several versions of the same card! LOL  I'm so in love with the INCOLOR palette this time around.  I think CRISP CANTALOUPE is my new favorite color, followed by BAKED BROWN SUGAR and PISTACHIO PUDDING.  I'm definitely just having fun playing with stuff in the brief moments I have to escape the reality of work, kids, and family.  When I said I wanted to be a grownup, this crap was NOT what I expected!  I need a crafting retreat to regain my composure and sanity.  I had to hurry up and post these quick pics I snapped with my phone, so I could begin posting the CHRISTMAS cards that I'm currently knee deep in creating.
