CARD FOR AMARINS



You can often find me  in the GAP store especially the kids department or Carters baby clothing.
Browsing and buying clothes for my granddaughter. 
It is one of my favourite leisures apart from
cross stitching.
I am regular at the post office to ship a pakkage, the lady behind the counter calls,

Amarins the best dressed baby from Holland.
  
 So Funny.

This card was included in the last shipment.

BUTTERFLY CARDS


These two little cards,  one for my sister and one for my niece.
To say thank you for the lovely and wonderful days.
They started their USA holiday here in New Orleans. 


 




                                              I felt so happy with them around, it was so good.
                                         One of the negative sides of being an expat is away from your family.
                                           






                                              We took the streetcar to the garden district,
                                              strolled along the Mississippi River,
                                              had some partying on Bourbon Street.
