Hi there everyone. 

I’m sharing a card today that I made a while back and it never made the blog.  Then at the end, I’ll share a little of what has been taking up all my free time for the last month or so.

I really love making ‘action’ cards – cards with lots of folds, or pop-ups.  They are really not that hard to do and the recipient is usually quite impressed.  🙂
This card is very nicely embellished with Jade Diamond Satin in two gathered rows.  What a great look and it’s so easy.  Just lay down a strip of 1/2″ Scor-Tape and start pressing the 5/8″ ribbon on to the tape while gathering it.  Easy-peasy and that Scor-Tape holds like crazy.
So, what is my excuse for being unprepared today.  
We are remodeling our kitchen!!!
Hurray and groan all at the same time!!  Hooray will be for when it’s done, but in the meantime it’s like camping in your own home!
I have been without a functioning kitchen for a month now, but we are getting close to the end…..!!
The photos below are of the finished kitchen/dining area floor.  Hubby and I installed it.  It’s pre-finished Hickory flooring.  We are doing much of the work ourselves.  (And by ourselves I really mean hubby is doing it and I’m supervising – I actually helped lay out the floor though!)
Our wall oven is now installed in a cabinet in the opening in the stone in the top photo.  It looks real purrrty too!
The hole with insulation on the wall is going to be a window [someday…]
So these photos were taken about a week and a half ago.  The cabinets are now all installed and most of the appliances.  The granite countertop is scheduled to be installed this week and then the sink.  The wonderful, glorious kitchen sink.  I never truly appreciated my kitchen sink until it was gone!  Ladies, hug your kitchen sink today and tell it you wouldn’t want to live without it.  It’s the truth!!  🙂
I’ll update with more kitchen photos on my next post.  The cabinets are just  gorjuss!!
Thanks for stopping by today!
