Create a Card

My posting schedule is way off kilter!!  I've been like a mosquito on caffeine lately!!  I have a laundry list of things I want to do around the house, but I still feel the need to craft a bit also.  Next up will be to restain my kitchen cupboards.  I also want to get brave and paint my counter top.  It's a hideous powder blue and I've been living with it for 35+ years.  LOL!  We opened the kitchen up back in 1983, but, the "if it does the job, why change it" mindset of my husband meant we were keeping it..  LOL!    Over the years I've tried to think of inexpensive ways to cover it up, but hadn't dared try painting it.  Now that I see it can be done, that's on my to-do list also.

And, of course, there's Pinterest which gives us all of these fabulous ideas!  :)

This card was created using X7148B Pemberley from Close To My Heart.  The stamp set, also from CTMH, is D1510 - 4 My Friend
