A special card for Nan

Have had a busy day today and we have a lovely warm toastie house with the new boiler working great
But they have not finished the job quite as they also left a nice hole in the outer wall and also just pushed an old rag in the whole>>>>! WHAT! they rang to check when they could come back to flush the system and I mentioned the unfinished jobs! I think the bloke near had a fit when I said about the rag in the hole! tehhehe!! they are coming back wednesday to sort the remaning issues and flush the system! 
But at least we have HOT water and heating! yay!! 
So what about the rest of my day! 

I was at work today and we had a quite day but some lovely new papers arrived
so of course I had to buy some it would be rude not to right?
Typical got my wages and spent some before even leaving work! tehehhee!!

I have a couple of cards I need to make this weekend
and one is for my Son to send to his other Nan, my ex mum in law,
I desided to use this cute House Mouse image but being brain dead as I am I can not remember for the life of me who send me this image! so thank you whoever you are!
give me a shout if it was you and I will edit this post to add your name
I think it maybe was Kaz but ekkkk! or should that read Squeek! I can't remember :(

Anyway! sooo with the lovely image and the yummi papers and the cute lace
I had a play and used these challenges for my inspiration:
Charisma Cardz - sweet treats Challenge 
House Mouse - distressing
Stamp something - Celebrate something
And and Awesome sketch from Friday Sketchers

Another Busy day tomorrow I we have a shed to dismantle and rebuild at the allotment ready for the alsbury ducklings Wow they are getting big will take my camera so U can see how much they are grown
also I will take some pictures of the 2 quails and some exciting news one has started laying eggs we have had one every day for the last 4 days tehehheee! they are soooo cute.
