Pretty Tilda - Addicted To Stamps DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
My trashing mission continues! I've broken the tweezers I use to pick up the crickets & locus to feed to the bearded dragons, the back gate was stiff so I gave it a good shove & it came right off the top hinge, and I also managed to sever the thinner mains charger lead to my laptop by trapping it in the recliner workings for the sofa, & while it was plugged in & switched on too! I guess somebody sensible would have had a look to see why the recliner wasn't closing, not me I just kept kicking it in until it closed, oops, lol. Obviously I had to confess to hubby about the gate & tweezers so I didn't dare confess to my computer lead as well & PC World didn't have a replacement so I ordered another on line & paid a whopping £8.50 to get express delivery, plugged it in yesterday & 2 mins later my computer crashed & then would not even switch on for hours so you can image my panic, & I've written a stroppy email to the seller demanding a refund!
I did confess to hubby when he got home from work last night & got the "what the ****** hell is wrong with you lately woman, you are going to kill yourself at this rate" lecture, but thankfully he stripped down the lead & cut the damaged section out, added a junction box & fingers crossed so far so good :) I'm not even sure I'm safe to open a bar of chocolate at the moment, not that that will stop me lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this fortnight the challenge is
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Papers & Pearls - Melissa Frances

Enjoy the rest of the weekend & thanks for stopping by
