Hi Everyone,
Happy Monday!!
I never realized how much I used all my appliances, until they all start breaking down at one time. I have been without a microwave for quite some time. Partly because I had to have our cabinet maker come and remove the trim around it before we could have the new one installed. He was working on a big job. So we had to wait a couple of weeks. The microwave we ordered was on back order. So If all goes well we should have it installed on Wednesday. I am looking forward to it being done so I can get more art and craft time in. I did not realize how long it takes to cook without the help of the microwave. It is not like I cook everything in it, it just helps speed things along. Oh yes and last month it was the dishwasher. I know it is not the end of the world, I just wanted you all to know why you have not seen me too much. Plus the 250 cards I made for the women's conference took a lot longer to make than I ever thought. I now I get a notice that I am up for jury duty. Have a great week-- I am going to be positive that everything will go well this week.  I am so looking forward to coming and visiting all of you soon.

Have you had an appliance break lately? How about another item that you use every day?

Water colored stenciled background!!

  3. so sorry for your appliance troubles! It has been a while since our appliances went out but a few years back the refrigerator, oven and dishwasher went out within months of each other! It wasn't pleasant!!!

    Your card is so lovely. The stars look great. The Celebrate is perfect. I use my Big sentiments all the time. They have to be my favorite from PTI. Have a great week!

  4. Geez! When it all wants to break down... it really does! Your poor thing! I don't think I would make it without my microwave either... My stove has started acting up.... like since this Sunday... I used it Saturday and baked 2 loaves of banana bread without a hitch... come Sunday morning... it took a long time to pre-heat to 375 degrees... then again today I needed it heated to 400 degrees and it took over 30 minutes? Not Normal? Plus my computer didn't want to work right for me after my hubby tried to fix it.. luckily that is fixed now so I can type all this to you! hahaha :) Hope your week gets better my friend! Your card is lovely... neat background! :)

  7. Lovely, happy card, Diana. And I feel your pain! Lost a washer a while back, and didn't realize how washing things out by hand was so tedious!

  8. Fun card, great water colored stencil background. Diana. I can relate to having things breakdown. The past few weeks I have been needing repairmen to quote for work outside my house! It certainly cuts into Craft Time, doesn't it :-(
