Such an awesome weekend...

We're back.. from an awesome long (and romantic.. hehe..) weekend in Paris!!! The weather was nice and warm and we walked around every day from 9AM until 6PM.. so perfect!! Unfortunately we were not able to go up the Eiffel Tower since the waiting lines were about 2 hours.. a little too long for us.. hehe.. Buuut.. we've done everything we wanted to do.... such a bummer the weekend went by so fast!! Sooo.. here's a little impression of our days in Paris (geesh..wish I could go back directly..LOL) ....


Since I didn't get to do any scrapping lately I'll leave you all with 2 more cards that have been pubbed in the previous issue of Cards Only Magazine (also from the Cuttlebug article I wrote) Patterned paper: Sassafras Lass:


And here's the 2nd one...


I'm having some real busy weeks ahead...October will be breast cancer awareness month.. and since I'm working at the Oncology department of a Pharmaceutical company overhere in The Netherlands we're taking care of all kinds of special events during the upcoming month. Right now I'm organizing (together with my collegues) a biiiiig fundraising walk which will take place next Sunday. I'm so excited that we've been able to get over 200 registrations for this amazing event.... So good to get some attention this way for this awefull desease...

Ok, gotta run.. I have a big pile of laundry 'calling' me.. hehe.. sooo..I'd better run.. hehe!

Thanks again for stopping by!!!

XOXO
Nancy

Zo te zien heb je een heerlijk weekend gehad en oh wat heb je het getroffen met het weer. Het was heerlijk...je kaartjes heb ik al in het magazine bewonderd. Erg leuk zijn ze. Veel succes met de organisatie voor dit goede doel.

J' espère que tu as passé un excellent séjour sur Paris !!! c'est une ville superbe pour des vacances, car il parait que pour y vivre c'est une autre histoire ....
Je serai tellement contente de pouvoir te rencontrer un jour, et pourquoi pas un jour à Paris sur un week end ???

Ohhh, heerlijk, Parijs ! Ik ben met mijn dochter in Augustus geweest en krijg helemaal heimwee als ik je foto's zie. Ik was nog wel even naar Le Temple Du Scrap geweest ;-)
Schitterende kaarten, uiteraard al gezien in Only Cards maar een feest om ze weer te zien !

Cute new cards and pics of Paris. Something kind of funny is that I just got a new neighbor and she is from Paris, France. She is actually here visiting her daughter for awhile. She came over to say hello, but there was a huge language barrier. Do you have any quick sayings you could teach me in French. I would love to learn a few things to say to her. =)
Have a good week.

Kan me voorstellen dat je, bij het zien van de foto's, gelijk weer terug wilt naar Parijs. Ook ik vind het een heerlijke stad. Succes met het organiseren. En je kaartjes zijn weer geweldig.
Liefs, Selma

Hi Nancy!!
Paris is wonderful, so romantic. I have been there in February, for Saint Valentine' S Day ... It has been an unforgettable vacancy! We had a dinner on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower on February 14th ... I got tears if I think about that moments :)
And very nice cards!
See you,
Alice

How romantic - a weekend in Paris. I can only imagine in my wildest dreams all the way over here in Wyoming, USA. I'm a breast cancer survivor of 7 years and am so happy that you have a part in helping to eradicate this horrible disease. Thanks Nancy - you're awesome! :)
