Over the Edge....FMS184





Kim has a fun sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  She asked us to take an element and just put it over the edge a bit!  Over the edge describes me perfectly these days as we enter week three of our kitchen renovation! But the new floor is down, cabinets are almost done and the appliances arrive today so the end is in sight.

Last night I read an article that listed eight things you 
"must" do if you renovate your kitchen.  I have learned a few things of my own through this renovation so I thought I would share a few things you should know if you undertake a major renovation........


1.  Buy a new bathrobe.....especially if your refrigerator is on the porch.  Construction guys get up very early so you will be answering the door by 7 am.

2.  Don't think for one minute that those plastic sheets hung in the doorways will keep construction dust out of the rest of your house.

3.  Scraping glue and vinyl off your kitchen floor with an ice scraper for 6 hours pretty much guarantees you won't be able to get out of bed the next morning.

4.  Don't read articles that tell you 8 things you must do in your kitchen reno because you might get to #8 and realize you haven't done one of them......



                                 Hope you join us!

Love your little tag hanging off the edge, great colors and design! I love your kitchen reno list...I completely agree with #1...been caught a few times in my PJ's by those early morning construction guys too! ;)

Sweet card! Love the over the edge idea too and your tag fits the ticket. I love how you used the single candle too, clean and simple! Maybe you need to pass those 8 "must dos" along! :)

Linda you are too funny! Love your list of things to know... I can relate to the getting out bed one... painting does the same thing to me. OMG... MY ARMS won't move.
Love your over the edge cards too.
hugs.

Great card Linda! I love your tag and sweet candle! The gold star is perfect! I am pretty sure I couldn't survive a kitchen renovation! My friend is going on a month without her kitchen and she is definitely going over the edge!

That sketch is just right for the "happy" tag and cute candle!! Love the balloon paper down the side.

Cindy said...

I love this card, Linda. How you were able to create such a cute and happy card in the midst of your renovation is beyond my comprehension! The renovation is like being in labor: once your kitchen is done, you'll forget the pain of bringing it to fruition! (I hope). :)
