Kitchen Reno's

Well, we are knee deep in kitchen renovations - the starting point is packing up what we have! WOW - don't we have a lot of junk! And glasses - where do they all come from? Anyway, now just waiting for the workmen to arrive on Monday to pull it all apart.  I will take some pikki's as we go along so you can see what is happening!

Challenges:  Just Scraps:  Fussy Cutting!
Birthday's still happen so birthday cards still have to be made for granddaughter's who turn seven - but very quickly! Here it is:





There are no stamps used - some stickers, some flowers from Petaloo (Celebrations), and one rub-on.  Some blue lace and a sheer ribbon bow, a pearl swirl, and lots of fussy cut faeries from the papers Alison Ellis's Flights of Fancy series. Then it was just all put together as you can see - very quickly! The photo's were taken at night so it was hard to get them in the right light and you cannot see the shine on the faeries or see them standing off the page, using dimentionals.

Wow what an amazing card Susan! lots of fussy cutting me thinks!!!
Good luck with the kitchen reno. It would have to be the worst room in the house to disrupt but a good excuse to eat out!!!!

Yes, I am shamelessly encouraging friends and family to invite us out! My middle granddaughter came for dinner on Monday and took photo's with my digital of her feet "last time I will stand on this tile"; of me dishing dinner "last time Nin dishes up dinner for us here" etc - made me almost feel guilty!

Very very pretty Susan - and certainly a perfect fit for the fussy cutting challenge. Your granddaughter will love it! Good luck with the renovations - unlike Sue (first comment) I'd say teh kitchen was the best room in the house to renovate! :) I'm not much of a cook! Have a great week - it's back to school for me this week - a perfect week for you to especially enjoy your retirment as everyone heads back to school. Actually, I think your school seasons differ from ours but anytime is a good time to enjoy retirment! Have a great week!
