Update and a challenge card

Yea! I now have 2 new lights in my master bathroom, 4 can lights and a pendulum in the kitchen,

2 new fans in my living/ dining room and a programmable thermostat.

Thanks to Josh and Monica. We were unable to do a can light in the pantry and a ceiling fan in one of the other bedrooms because there is CONCRETE up in the rafters. This must be some kind of weird, old house thing. Josh said he would be afraid to cut through that (and he didn't have the right tools) because it could crack the whole ceiling. He recommended having a contractor do that part. The pantry light I can do without (lots of light coming in from outside), but I would like to get the light/ ceiling fan centered in the guest bedroom.
Sorry, the pictures are kind of dark because it's getting dark and rainy outside. I'll have to take pics when the whole process is done. Hopefully, we'll do some ceiling scrapping tomorrow and then get the retexturing sometime in the near future. I can't wait til my house looks like a house again!
Here is a challenge card. This is done with acetate, and I guess it could count for the 2 kinds of dp challenge also. The image is from the Bundle of Joy set from The paper is from sky blue designer series paper.
Happy crafting!

Lisa -
I love your light fixture choices! That fan is awesome! I know you are so happy to get those things taken care of ...

Your card is very cute. It's hard to tell what the acetate part of the card is .. is it the base of the card?
