"First order since landing"

Hello Blog friends and all who visit, so glad to have you here.
Holiday over and back to normality.  Washing all up to date although I really only had our traveling clothes plus few bits and pieces.  John and Audrey have had a Time Share apartment with 2 bedrooms in Orange Lakes, Florida for 12 years. They have used it 4 times and traded it for visiting other parts of the US for the other 8 years.   They traded it this year for a Luxury 4 bedroom Villa with private pool and games rooms so we had plenty space for all of us.  All washing was done as needed so no dirty stuff to wash at home.  We have been asked so many times to go with them to Florida but always said it was not for us and had other places to visit.  However the boys really wanted us to experience Florida.  Kept telling us how wonderful it was.  Boys have done and seen most of the Parks so choice of what to do was really up to us.  We did all the ones on our list, visited lots of other places other than Parks and Shopping Malls.  Loved every minute, would not have missed it for the world, especially when we saw the boys enjoying things.  Seen it! done it! but there are so many other places John & I  would visit before going back.
Slept for 3 hours from 11am till 2pm yesterday, went to bed approx 10.30pm up later than I would normally at 7.30am this morning, that`s me back on track.
Was only home 20mins when I got a call needing a card.  I did have one in my box which fitted the bill, that`s delivered and dealt with.

My old lady in the village needed a card for new Grandparents. Luckily I had one in my box
I don`t do peel off`s but there are some on this card for some reason........must have been a "freebie needing used up"
The backing paper and image I use lots for Baby Cards they are from one of the first CDs I ever bought.  Things have moved on but I still like to use these, I have kept the CD just for that reason
Gold Miiri card for matting
Computer generated greeting

That`s it for today folks
Thank you for visiting I really appreciate it
Till next time

"That`s me Back"

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who has just happened by. Welcome to my little corner of Blogland.
I have been missing for  2 weeks for a very good reason  ......  we have been on a "Family Holiday".
This was our gift from John and Audrey for our Golden Wedding.  
It was really our Christmas 2013/Golden Wedding Gift.   We felt it was far too much but were told that we have done so much for them over the past few years, this was their way of saying Thank You.     "FANTASTIC" time was had by all.  
Arrived home happy but very tired this morning after a horrendous flight full of screaming children. I usually sleep on flights but not a wink could be had.  None of managed to sleep not even the boys. Thank goodness we had a tail wind and got home almost 2 hours quicker than on the outward journey.
Here are a few clues to where we have been.

Look what we saw......not just one but TWO!!!

Of course we were here........!!!
I will be back with some creative crafting when I get back to normal ...... now that could be a couple of days so please bare with me.
I have been looking in on you all while I have been away.  Seen some wonderful creations and great inspiration.
Thank you for your company, I really appreciate it
Till next time
