Less Is More - Let It Snow

Morning all.   How are we today?  I'm feeling a bit down in the dumps as we've just had in the estimate for our kitchen and it is £3,500 over our top end budget.  Fourteen years waiting for a new kitchen and it looks like it still won't happen.  Sob!

Anyway, LESS IS MORE this week are asking us to Let It Snow with a One Layer Card.

Our new kitchen is costing us less than your over budget & we've a big kitchen !!

Wait till january hun & get a re-quote, kitchen companies will be desperate to sell off all the 2011 ranges. And don't get a price for fitted, price for supply only, its cheaper to hire your own chippie to do your instal for you or put it in yourself.

Cor think I'll go do some one layer valentine cards now haha

Your cards are gorgeous, I love the polar bears.
Kitchens are very expensive - I sourced all my appliances online - saved quite a bit. xx

When I was looking for a new kitchen, someone said I had to look in Ikea. maybe that is possible for you?

I realy love you cards. I like the one with the polarbears best. So sweet.

Zippy said...

WOW Sweetie these are fabulous loving your colour choices too, I would find this very hard to do I love to pile mine to the top lol huggles Pops x x x

Mandy said...

Two fabulous cards,I really love the CAS and the images are so cute....I agree with Aj's comment we got supply only and then got a local carpenter to fit it,much cheaper,but ask for a day rate as well as a price for the job,we went with day rate was even cheaper...Hope this helps...

Oh! Squirrel I know exactly how you feel about your kitchen exactly the same happened to me, I keep asking where do these property investors get their £1000 kitchens from? So still waiting for mine too!!

Cute card- sorry to hear about the estimate. I would love a new kitchen but am TERRIFIED of getting an estimate!

Rufus said...

Both your cards are darling! Sounds like you've gotten some good advise about your kitchen. I'm sure that you can find a less expensive way to do it and still get what you want. After all Squirrels are tenacious and tricky! Don't give up.
Hugs,

both your cards are lovely

coops said...

gorgeous cards squirrel.love the images and stunning cas designs.
what a dissapointment regarding your kitchen but i would do as oher people have said and wait till january when the prices are normally slashed up to 50% off and hire your own man to install it, thats where the kitchen companies seem to charge the most.

xx coops xx

Lovely cards, especially the first one. It looks so happy!

Maybe Santa will bring one for you or a solution. x

Fantastic cards, love th epolar bears
sorry about the estimate. Maybe the Jan sales will prove more fruitful. It certainly pays to shop around, we had quotes on our bathroom and there was thousands difference, for basically the same job!

Many thanks
