Today I have been busy emptying out our huge built in fish tank with a view to getting rid! All because of the gale force winds last night! The wind caused us to have a power cut and during that time the fish tank decided to pour water all over the hall floor & half empty. Why? I haven't a clue, as it wasn't the first power cut we've had. The one yesterday however seemed to blow the pump - our something, cause when I switched things back on this morning, there was a terrible burning smell followed by more water lapping at my feet! Hence, ta-ta fish tank!

Once that was sorted, (and all fish returned to the pet shop to get new homes), I made this card. It used a National Trust stamp, & a Hero Arts Stamp, (No papers) & a couple of CB folders. Challenges;
