Couldn't resist

Home again from a long weekend in Munich.

According to my pedometer (a Christmas present from my husband) I clocked up 10 -11 miles of walking each day while I was there. That probably explains my sore feet.

One of the things that I saw on my travels around Munich was their posh department stores and I just had to post a photo of one of them here. Think Harrods without the food hall but much smaller, and you will get the idea of how posh!


I admit that I went in to look but never bought anything. The department store front gave me an idea for a card and I've also just spotted that the SUO Challenge - No 70 - Butterflies Are So Much Fun for this week is butterfly related.




Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Stamp set : Serene Silhouttes
Ink : Wild Wasabi and Perfect Plum (Stampin' Write Markers)
Card Stock : Whisper White, Perfect Plum, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, Rose Red and Marina Mist
Accessories : Beautiful Wings Embosslits die, Multipurpose Glue, Basic Rhinestones and Dimensionals

I'm off now to finish all that needs to be done for Regional Training in Telford this coming weekend. A group of us are meeting up for dinner Friday night and staying over, so that we don't have to travel early on Saturday.  I will post photos of the swaps later in the week but check back tomorrow to see what else I've been up to.

As always, please feel free to leave comments.
