Lucy's Lovely Lines challenge

If you are looking for the current Cards Pattern Sketch card and the Tiffany Doodles Challenge card please see here.

I made this card for the challenge over at the Lily Pad Blog set by Lucy Abrams but I realize that I am too late , never mind I will post it anyway.  Its a very simple card made using the cuttlebug elephant die cut and lots of pretty pink scraps of paper. I have also added a small border using the Magical Background die from Hero Arts.

I am still recovering from my Holiday in France and have a pile of washing and ironing the size of a small mountain lol.  I can't wait to get creating again, in the meantime here are a few photos I took in sunny Nice.

This is one of the old Art Nouveau hotels on the seafront lit up at night, so pretty!!

This is the beautiful home of Claude Renoir the painter, now a fabulous museum and gallery.

This is Renoirs stunning garden looking over to the medieval hill top town.

Some old houses in Nice, the light was amazing and you can understand why all the old impressionist painters loved to live and paint in the South of France.

Every day in the square next to our apartment they held a farmers market, all the produce was of such a high quality and always beautifully displayed.  This is the local soap stall, the soaps are made from locally grown flowers and the smell from this stall was amazing! My favourite was the lavender!

Hope to make some cards tomorrow.
