I had so many great plans for today but the dryer died last night so after I went to the Passport office to renew our passports, I started to search for a new dryer. Since the washer is the same age, I am buying a new one of those too. I think I found what I want but I almost choked at the price. It is going to cost over $2000 for the pair and I still have to add taxes, delivery and installation. I remember when my husband and I got our first home in 1976, we paid that amount for a washer, dryer, stove, refrigerator and huge chest freezer and that included all the added charges.
Once I got back though, I did manage to quickly make a card for a few challenges. Lots of blogs are asking for Christmas cards and I can't think of a better excuse to get another card done in advance. Now I think I only have 45 left to do. At this rate, a few people may not get a card this Christmas.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Sassy Cheryl's - Christmas in July
2 Sisters Challenge - Christmas in July
Fresh Brewed Designs - Christmas in July
Cute Card Thursday - Get a Head Start
