Dear Friend and Readers,

Wow, we made some progress with our kitchen project, but there is still a lot to get done. I have nothing left of my old kitchen. All cabinets, appliances, and flooring are removed. A bit more electric work, plumbing, and dry wall and we will be all ready to install the new cabinets and appliances. I am excited!

Despite all the work around the kitchen, I have found time to craft a bit and I am happy I did. Nothing like some card making to recharge my energies.

I am loving the new Climbing Orchid bundle. For one thing, I have always loved orchid and use to have a collection of them when we lived in Florida. Now I have a few of them that sit happily in our school room. I wanted to create an Ikebana type of floral today and for that I use the Christmas Pine for the leaves and the Frozen Threats for the vase or bowl. I covered the bowl with a piece of velum cut from the Layering Ovals framelit. The center of the orchid was coated over with Wink of Stella just for a subtle touch. Hard to see on the picture, but it gave a nice effect. This card really did not need anything else.

Thank you for visiting today. Take care.
