Ooh La Frou Frou

When I love something, I LOVE IT! When I LOVE IT, I LIKE TO SHARE IT! I was reading blog posts about two weeks ago, came across a blog button that caught my eye and thought it was totally adorable. So I decided to check it out. The name of the blog is Ooh La Frou Frou.  

Sandra Shelton Markwalder is the talented illustrator/blogger behind Ooh La Frou Frou. She posts once or occasionally twice a week. She came up with 8 characters (Aimee, Hope, Belle, Alex, Cherie, Violet, Sunny & Tiffany) that star in her blog. Each is a representation of what we love: entertaining, interior design, glamour, the beach, shopping, New York, Paris, fashion, Audrey Hepburn and MORE. Her topics are simply exquisite. If you're a girly glamorous girl (and all of my readers are), you should definitely check her blog out and subscribe.

Not only is her blog exquisite, but Sandra creates glamorous greeting cards that are equally as fabulous. I love a pretty card! She has cards for ALL occasions. I couldn't post all of them...but just take a look! NEW ones are added all the time. You can read testimonials on her page.
