Back in Business

Hi! Happy Monday! I’m back from almost a week in Berlin and let me tell you – that is one amazing city. I’m in love! :) I was attending a conference that was superb and extremely hectic, so not much time for sightseeing. But I saw enough to know I have to take my boys there real soon. And the food… well, I think knödeln will grow on you over time. Maybe. But I’m not sure about the Shank. Imagine the shock when half a pig with bones and all was served… The meat inside was delicious though. Still… The beer and Döner Kebab was excellent! :)

I have more photos but that will have to wait till later this week, now I have today’s card for The Rubber Cafe to share. I got some new yummy MME papers in blue and yellow and it felt like a blue summer sky and sun and thought I’d play with that feeling in contrast to all the Seasonal cards I’ve been doing lately.
It’s a Miss you card, so any colors should do – right! :)

The beautiful butterfly stamp is called Small Trailing Butterflies and is a favorite of mine. You’ve seen it before if you visit my blog on a regular basis. I stamped it multiple times on patterned papers and layered them for some dimension. A pearl in the centers gives the butterflies some sparkle…

The sentiment stamp is from Fabulous Phrases.

I used a sketch from a few weeks back from Try Stampin’ on Tuesday – I didn’t find the time to play then, but I really liked the sketch.
 
And before I go – I had +1000 posts in my reader when I got home yesterday. The internet connection was ridiculously expensive in Berlin so I couldn’t keep up. And I wont have the time to back track. A new crazy week. So I’m sorry that I’ve missed all of your activity the past week.
 
Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely new week!
