City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 170 ~ Summertime!

Wendy is our lovely host this week at

She challenged us to make a project that says


Summertime might be beach house vacation for some, flip-flops, watermelon and BBQ for some, but for me, strawberries always pop up when I think of Summertime

Here again, using my favorite strawberry stamp set to make a set of card for Clare

with matching envelopes

I had an old projects that left me with lots of these white cardstock frames

great time to use them

this is a quick and easy project since I have those frames all ready to be used

I make 6 cards with different sentiments 

Come on and join us

Guten Tag!

Greetings from Grafing, Munich

We flew into Frankfurt, and then took a train from Frankfurt to Munich

if you haven't know yet, taking train rides is one of my favorite thing to do in Europe

{lap top, glasses, note pad, pen and my new hat get to ride along}

See! this is why I love train rides in Europe

Endless scene of beauty..... little German town are among my favorites!

I love this set of cards! Have you ever taken the slow train from Frankfurt to Bonn or Cologne? THAT is beautiful scenery! It feels like you are traveling right through a miniature world!
How long will you be in Munich for? I'll be there next weekend! And if you've already found gorgeous paper/crafts stores, let me know!!

Ohh, I LOVE traveling in that area! Especially by train. If you travel from the Netherlands to Munich, it's always such a thrill to see the mountains on the horizon when you approach Munich. Happy memories...
