Good morning all
This is my partly scheduled and partly updated post as I'm now enjoyong my hollies in (at the moment -not so) sunny Florida. We're really enjoying our hollies but not with out a few dramas!! Firstly before we even left the UK we took off from Manchester and made an emergency landing at Gatwick to have the plane repaired!! - 6 hours of sitting on the runway later - we took off again and eventually got here only to have to sit on the runway in Orlando for another half hour because there were no immigration officers to take us through and legally we couldn't disembark - just because by this time we'd been on the plane for 16 hours and they knew we were coming didn't mean they had to be ready for us (at 1 on the morning) . Still all was forgotten when we finally got to the villa and we got into holiday mode only to be greeted by .... a hurricane warning, a tropical storm warning and tornado warnings all in the same day!! None of them hit us but we had lots of rain and wind which led us to the shopping mall and lots of shopping and bargain Nine West in shoes for meeee!! - I'm otherwise known as the Imelda Markos of South Tyneside and had to live up to my reputation ha ha.
Anyways less of the holiday dramas and onto my card today which is my DT card for My Time to Craft - on time for a change!! (amended to add- well it would have been if my scheduled post had posted!) I have a really fun card for you today that I made for my brother in laws 60th birthday. I had a little competition with my MAWTT DT buddies to find a digistamp suitable for this card - the criteria set for my husband for his brothers birthday card was quite the toughest I've had - but a great suggestion for this stamp came from my teamie Hazel, who spent a sleepless night coming up with this stamp for me - thanks so much hun- your prize has been sorted in a trip to Michaels!!-and this is what I did with it......
