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

See! this is why I love train rides in Europe

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

I guess all I could do is just
