"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
Hugs

  4. I love images you use for your baby cards - they are timeless and have to be honest couldn't work out where you had used peel- offs - thought it was a bit of fancy matting and layering xx hopefully you will be over the jet lag now - how lovely to not have to do loads of washing - especially with this wild weather xx stay safe and dry xx GailT xx

  11. Lucky you to have had such a pretty card ready for your requestor. It surely fits the bill for a brand new baby, and is so lovely. Had to smile when I read Orange Lakes, Fla. That is such a pretty area, and I hope you had good weather to enjoy while you saw the sights. We have some gorgeous scenery in the USA (although Florida is mostly sunshine, water & palm trees!), but I still hanker to visit many European places as well. We enjoyed living in South Florida for the years we lived there. Lots of shopping malls for the tourists too. Glad you were able to keep your laundry caught up. TFS & Hugs
