Stressed out!!!

UPDATE COUPLE OF FRACTURED RIBS!Morning everyone hope you are all faring better than me at the moment I don't know whether to laugh or cry!!!About midnight Monday night O/H fell backwards down the stairs,hurting his back and chest,wouldn't let me ring an ambulance because of the time?spent all night in agony and at 5o'clock said to ring one,I got up got the cats fed and out of the way,got dressed afte which he said dont bother I feel more comfortable now-anyway mid morning I ended up ringing one and the woman who came examined him and said in my opinion?it's just muscular and they will give you pain relief and send you home,so because he did't want to go infirst place said okay he wouldn't bother!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!now he can hardly breathe or talk without pain but because of his age (64)and in bad health anyway I think they should have taken him without choice.Then this morning I got up and the hamster(which we are looking after for grandaughter Ellie)cage door was open and the hamster was laid dead in the middle of the room,there was no marks on it at all just a few wet parts,so we are not sure if the kitten killed it or played with it and gave it a heart attack as it was old-the bad news was given as died in her sleep and after a few tears for her beloved pet asked her Dad,can I have a rabbit now???Now holding my breath for the next emergency.
I made this card the other day,now panicking to blog it in time.It started off as a very CA card then I couldn't stop and here is the result.Pre-coloured Mos Digital image topper from Hobby House,just added glamour dust,linen and coloured cardstock from Papermill Direct,a few die-cuts,dewdrops and liquid pearls from stash.
