Wednesday Blog Hop -- November 30, 2016

I am going to take artistic liberties today.  Since I put this week's card on last week's blog post, I am going to continue going rogue and do a Christmas card this week, which would be next week's theme.  By the time you read this post on Wednesday I hope to be on a train in Germany headed for Switzerland.  At least that is the plan.  Right now it is Monday and we are to leave tomorrow for Zurich, Switzerland by way of a connecting flight in Frankfurt, Germany.  However, this morning Lufthansa notified us that our connecting flight in Frankfurt was cancelled due to an airline strike.   The strike is 3 days but is exactly when we are to travel.  We spent all day today working out the snag.  So, once we get to Frankfurt we will take a commuter train to the main train station and travel 4 hours by train to Zurich, Switzerland.  Not so bad, but it was touch and go for a while.  With everyone trying to figure out what to do about their cancellations, it was difficult to find an alternative and then get through to make it happen.  Thus my statement that I hope while you are reading this I will either be on a train or already in Zurich, and this dilemma will be nothing more than a fun story to tell when we return.

For my card today, I am jumping ahead to December and putting a Christmas card on my post.  You may recognize it.  This is made from the super Paper Pumpkin kit subscribers received this month.  I quickly did up all the cards to add to my holiday card stash and love them all.  Because we will be travelling and won't return until very close to Christmas, I needed to have all my cards and Christmas shopping done before we left.  Wow, this is the first year I had all my Christmas cards and shopping done BEFORE Thanksgiving.

Enough jibber jabber,  here is my card.

The stamps in the set are cute houses and trees and a nice sentiment.  I did some cards with colored houses and that combination is nice too.  These are small and perfect for enclosing a nice monetary gift.  You probably came to me from Liz's blogsite and will then go to Robbie's blogsite.  The theme today actually is still Thank You.  Forgive me for "doing my own thing."

Hopefully you all had a nice Thanksgiving.  Enjoy December.  Cross your fingers for me and my travels and that Lufthansa gets this strike out of their system.  Dec 7 and 11 I have Berlin and Munich flights.  It is really hard schlepping luggage on/off trains so I hope the flights won't cancel.

Take care,
