Wunderschöne Weihnachtszeit

Hello everyone,

Happy Monday!!
I hope you all had a great weekend!! Mine was ok so far,just a lot of coughing around!
I can't seem to get rid of my cold i got in Nice! Oh could be worse! :)

I was asked,if i'de like to share some photos of the trip.Of course! :)

But first i'de like to share a card i made for the latest CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge!! Haven't played for a while and glad i did get some time to make a card last night!

I've used the November Simon Says Stamp Card Kit.For the edge,i've used Clearly Besotted's Scalloped Edge Dies.
Aaaaand,the sentiment...YES,after all those years of crafting,this is my first German sentiment that i am using on a card.It's from Create a Smile and the Set is called " Schöne Bescherung "! The sentiment means "wonderful christmas time" in english!

Ok,on to some pics from the trip!
I took the first 3 in Monaco.I'll be honest,i am not really liking this place much! There is just not really anything historical about it,everything to new,and i quite felt like it was all about the money! I mean it was nice to look at,with all of the ( god knows how many ) yachts,but not really my thing.

My Grandma and me.This was taken right accross the church where Grace Kelly and Fürst Rainer from Monaco got married.I think this was one of the most interesting places there.
No,i'm not that tall,my Grandma is pretty small! ;)

 And these are just a few of the yachts,that i've seen there

To bad i didn't get a photo like this from Nice!! Nice to me was one of the most beautiful towns i have seen in my life!! I was suprised.I never cared much to see Nice,but i would go there again...anytime!!
This here is my favorite pic i took.Grandma and me set on the beach watching the beautiful sunset!! Was so nice,and so special to me,since i don't get to see her very often!

Thank you so much for stopping by!!! :)

A beautiful card.... perfect for CTS#99! LOVE the red/aqua combination!
I too think that Nice is a great destination, and pretty much has it all-beaches, nightlife, shopping, museums, restaurants, etc.! And, close one of my favorite places, Saint Paul de Vence.

Gorgeous card, Cindy; the red/aqua/white is such an eye-catching combination, and those trees are pure delight! Your photos are so special; what a wonderful bond you share with your grandma! Nice sounds gorgeous, and Monaco...WOW! A spot for the wealthy, indeed! Hope you're having a fabulous Monday; we're still visiting my family, and's cold here! Snow and 'highs' of -15C in the forecast. I'll be wearing my longjohns when I go out today!

What lovely memories with your grandma!!

Aqua and red is such a fresh color combo - and SO perfect for these fun trees. I love the way you were able to use the paper.
