First Card of 2014 and Some Surprises

Surprise #1: My water heater was acting up the last few days.  The water would become scalding hot despite me turning the heater's themostat down.  A plumber came over today and installed new thermostats so I'm hoping that it's all fixed.  The kitchen sink seems to be working ok, so fingers crossed.

Surprise #2: I got an email from my friend Steph last night.  She got engaged over New Year's Eve!  Ok, I guess it's not too much a surprise.  I had an inkling that it'd be happening soon since she and her boyfriend live together and have been dating for a while.

Card: This is my first card of 2014.  One of the things that I want to do in 2014 is not buy so many crafting supplies.  I did pretty good in 2013, but I want to be even better in 2014.  With that said, I dug around my supplies on my desk and found a set of stickers I hadn't used yet and some rub-ons and an unused card base with an embossed panel already on it.

This card is for my friend Page as she begins another semester of pharmacy school.

Card Specs:
Embossing Folder:  Sizzix- Retro Circles
Die: Lifestyle Crafts- Hello. Goodbye.
Sticker: Martha Stewart- Stitched Fruit Stickers
Rub-On: American Crafts- Sentiment Phrases

Oh gosh....that could be quite the challenge not buying supplies and using what you favorite store, Archivers is closing (sob) and isn't there talk that Hobby Lobby was closing also???? Oh my if that happens I guess my options for buying card making supplies will dwindle and I WILL have to use what I have. I do know I did not buy as much in 2013, when I add up the reciepts I will know how much I spent verses how much I made selling verses how much I donated to Hospice.....

Oh we had to call the plumber on Christmas Eve....Toilet problems. New Years Eve we were having Drain problems, but Mr. Draino came to the rescue!!! Happy New Years!!!
