GTKY Christmas cards V & VI

More Christmas cards today :) 3 and 2 from them from the GTKY girls, Carol and Valerie.

This is Carol's "adobe" card. I really like the stamps, very christmasy. Inside the envelope there's a few more things and details, like a beautiful picture of Mt. Graham, only 1 km from Carol's house. Thanks Carol for the card and for the words, you always know what to say :)

And this is Valerie's "octabis" card. This Christmas handmade RR has been revealing very talented girls. All the cards are beautiful and this card is another great example.

Valerie knew i wanted to have a card of the Conciergerie and she sent me this beautiful one. Here we can see the Pont Neuf (new Bridge) and the Conciergerie. The Pont Neuf is the oldes standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris and it was built between 1578 - 1607. The Conciergerie is a former royal palace and prison. Hundreds of prisoners during the French Revolution were taken from La Conciergerie to be executed on the Guillotine at a number of locations around Paris. Queen Marie Antoinette was one of the prisoners.
