Postcard Travels with Roland Poland - Week 9 Switzerland

Our canine hero is in somewhat melancholy mood when he writes to his half-brother Malcolm this week.
He says,
Hi Malcolm,
Holiday's over, kids back at school in Switzerland and I'm in the dog house for getting drunk.
Mrs X is filling her safe deposit box with jewellery and Xui busy at work.
Keeping my head down.  Appointment at Poodle Parlour this afternoon - Oh the shame!
RP

Here are the pages I made for him in his travel book.
I used this photo below of Bern at sunset as inspiration for my postcard, it is from the official Switzerland site.
For my postcard I used a brayer, Kaleidacolour Desert Sand ink, Burgundy ink and a stamp from Crafty Individuals.
