W2SB Challenge #7: Oh La La

Hi, everyone.

Can you believe it's already July?! July often brings to mind fireworks, parades, and picnics.

So, what words will we use for this month's inspiration? We've actually decided to go with the interjection "Oh La La" -- in honor of Bastille Day, of course!

Interestingly enough, Oh La La is usually spoken in France to express surprise, distress, annoyance, disappointment or displeasure. The phrase actually means oh dear, oh my, or oh no, and isn't typically used to talk about something risqué. And, it's not unusual for a speaker to utter more than two Las when caught up in the emotion of a moment.  :)

This month, we are pleased to welcome CG as our Guest I-Teamer who amazed us with her winning Bloom Where You Are Planted card. Welcome, CG!

Let's see what our gals have for you this month... starting with Guest I-Teamer CG. CG's card is so spectacular that one photo simply doesn't do it justice!


Penny's little girl is ready for a huge celebration on either side of the pond. The sparkling fireworks and sentiment set such a festive tone!


Annie's Mimi is right at home sipping coffee in a French café. Love Annie's paper selections and coloring!

Bernadette chose a love-inspired, romantic interpretation for her fun wedding card. She's made a card her nephew and his bride are sure to cherish!


Bobbi went Parisian all the way with her interpretation. And, she always adds such interesting texture to her cards!

As for me, I just had to make a pair of paper-pieced French love birds with my new Stampin' Up! owl punch for this one. The inside of the card has a little play on this month's "words".  :)


We can't wait to see what you do with this interjection!   In addition to a badge and guest I-Teamer invite, a few Tim Holtz-Parisian-inspired goodies will be awarded to this month's winner.  :)
