Relax you might make it through.....

Wish I could relax I feel like a coiled spring today, My head feels like its ready to explode... I have been really good and done some house work including washing the windows and cleaning the oven! YUK! And cleaned the rabbits and Guinea-pigs out too.
I just wanna sit and relax so I can make it through the evening...
with out taking headache tablets...

Some Sad news also today one of my Guinea-pigs died RIP Lilly
On a brighter note Pickle and Tango (boy Guinea-pigs) are fine, the Ducks have started to lay the odd few eggs, and all the chickens and Rabbits, geese and quails are fine too.

I have had a little craft time this afternoon and managed to make a couple of cards
The first one is a quite card I did use "Less is Mores
3 Squares but its a new challenge today and that is Pastels so lucky I have used pastel blue, I hope its pastel enough?
 only a couple of challenge for this one
Card Creations & More - Sparkle - On the edges of the squares
Catch The Bug - Anything Goes
One Stop Craft - Colour - Black, White + 1 other = blue

 My Second card of the day is for a Family birthday
