Ever Thankful for You


Hi, everyone! :) Hope this week has been treating you well! I'm getting ready to head out to the store in a few minutes, but first wanted to stop by and post a card I created.  The stamped pattern on this card is a super old Stampin' Up! background called Linograph.  I've had this stamp for ages, but wouldn't you know it, I haven't actually EVER used it before.  Totally ridiculous... I should make it a point to go back through all my stamp sets and make a card using them... Nahhhhhh. :P LOL

I posted on my Facebook this morning about our dryer that went kaput, and the responses are pretty much 50/50.  Half of the people like to match, and the other half just replace what's broken.  Our washer/dryer came with the house when we moved in 6 years ago, so I don't know exactly when they were purchased.  Just by looking at them, I'm thinking the washer has to be my age (seriously... lol), but the dryer is much newer (that doesn't say a lot 'cause it's pretty darn old too).  On the one hand, I'd reeeeeeally like them to match (LOL, especially seeing as there would be about a 30 year difference between the two), but on the other hand, I hate to just get rid of a machine that is a total workhorse because newer appliances just aren't built to last.  Oh well, it'll get sorted out... eventually. :)

Have a great one!

Supplies:
Stamps - Linograph (Stampin' Up!), Studio G (Sentiment)
Paper - Aqua Mist, Stamper's Select White
Ink - True Black, Versamark
Miscellaneous - Turquoise Rhinetsones (Want2Scrap), Clear Embossing Powder, Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon, Nestabilities

Glad you found that SU stamp because it makes a seriously gorgeous background!

LOVE that color combo! :) Hmmm - that's a tough call you have there w/the washer/dryer... I bet if you get a new set, you could really bless someone w/that work horse. Then it wouldn't *totally* go to waste, and you get your pretty new set. ;) Lol... good luck deciding!

Gorgeous card! That background stamp is fabulous. You need to be sure it doesn't get buried again. We had the same issue when our dryer went out. I wanted to get a matching set with a front loading washer (which I love). Anyway, I lucked out because someone at work was moving and needed a washer so I gave her our still good older one! Worked for everyone!

So love this card!! Love the CAS look!!
As for me ... when my washer went out 4-yrs ago, I got a complete new set. They were over 12-yrs old, and by getting a set I was able to get the 0% interest for 16-mos to pay for it.

I was just reading a magazine the other day--trying to read through and get rid of (starting to look like a Hoarders episode around here in between the magazines and the stamps) :P but the article was on saving money and it said that if appliances were over 10 years old you should think about replacing them and getting the energy star kind--be surprised how much money you save..then you'll have more money to buy stamping stuff...hee-hee...Blessings, Petie S.

Super cute card....unless they are in the main living part of the house, and people will see them all the time, I'd go with replacing what is broke. I LOVE having a matching set, but if I could spare the extra expense, I would. Lol
