Two dramas and Twinkles Boo

Morning everyone -can you believe it's March already a third of the year almost gone!We have had another drama-well not us but Son,DIL and grandaughters.They have just had a new gas meter fitted which he did in less than 10 mins,they also had anew front door fitted so had a smell of sealant for a couple of days-on the second morning -after all going to bed early feeling ill-came down to a string smell of gas.Someone came out half hour later and despite having back door open to let fumes out, his gadget started beeping as soon as he walked in the front door!!!!!!Apparently he had fitted a reject meter with acrack and faulty valve and left it unchecked despite knowing there were children in the house,now under investigation but could have had deadly results.We also have Dughter back home again as marriage is well and truly over-could write a soap about us lol-ooh for a peaceful life and the Dr asked are you under any stress??????????????
My card today is for the new challenge at CRAFTING FROM THE HEARTand the challenge is "ATG/Use dies or punches" easy peasy or what???Sponsors are The Stampin Chef and Lacy Sunshine whose gorgeous image "Twinkles Boo"I have used coloured with promarkers,papers are graphic 45-Little Darlings,a few dies and buttons from stash.I love this image.Just a reminder our challenges will be weekly from now on.
