Postcard Travels with Roland Poland - Week 5 France

Roland Poland is accompanying Mrs Xui (wife of his benefactor) on a shopping spree in Paris.
Things are not working out quite as he imagined.  He writes to his brother Malcolm in Carlisle.
He says
Hi Malcolm,
Shopping, shopping, shopping.  When will that woman have had enough!
She's had a coat made for me with my initials embroidered in the lining, diamant√© collar and paw boots to complete the ensemble. Oh the shame!
If the lads ever find out Malcolm,  I'm finished.
RP
P.S. I'm window shopping outside my favourite Butchers.

Here is the page I made for Roland Poland's Travel Book.
The postcard is a pencil sketch from Silhouette Sensations by Gwyneth Windsor, coloured with pencils.  The travel book uses papers from TLC and stamps from Prima and Stampin' Up.
