The one constant is change.

Home maintenance always means something is going to change......  We found ourselves having to replace a water heater, furnace and air conditioning unit this week. Our heat pump compressor gave out and will be more expensive to repair than replace. Then we discovered the hot water heater was leaking and also so old it, too, needed to be replaced. Next the construction engineer delivered the news that our furnace was now out of "code" because the space where it is located happens to be next to a bedroom and only separated by sliding doors; another replacement. The work is only half done and already there are yet more changes. Due to size restrictions the water heater has to be moved from it's original location by the furnace - thank heaven we have a closet in the utility room that will suffice. What a mess! It's always something new around here. Needless to say, I've not spent a lot of time in the craft room. Only one card to show today.

Another card I put together to send to Mom. Most of the papers came from a Simon Says Stamp card kit. The flowers and sequins are from my stash and the leaves I cut from green card stock using my Cricut Explore.  It was very fortunate to find colors and patterns that work together.
