I promised to share more pictures from our vacation but first comes a card for those who are not interested in travel photos.
One of my dear local stamping friends had her birthday soon after I came back from vacation and this is the card I made for her. I probably should have warmed up with a simpler card... When I am gone for such a long time my mojo falls asleep and I have a hard time to wake it up again. Also, before I leave I usually clean my craft area and then I don't want to mess it up again when I come back. I know that some of you can only craft on a clean and organized workspace but it doesn't seem to be the same for me.
Since I embossed I will enter it in this week's Simon Says Wednesday Challenge where the theme is "Emboss". Please take note that for once it's not last minute but the first day! So you have plenty of time to heat emboss, dry emboss or even use embossing paste a card and play along!
And here are some photos from our day in Salzburg, Austria. We took the train there with a friend who told us about the great deal offered by the German Railway System. The weather was glorious, the city is beautiful and I hope to be able to go back!
View of the river Salzach and the castle on the hill.
View from the castle down to the city.
Famous "Getreidegasse" where Mozart was born. For some reason I didn't take a picture of the house he was born in. Check out those elaborate signs for each store!
This was a long post! Thanks for bearing with me! Soon I will show you some impressions of Venice.
