Pink and Brown

There are day's when you just want to rewind the clock and start again and yesterday was one for me. First of all I woke up with cramp in my calf, now I've had this before but never quite so bad, I have trouble walking anyway add this to do was something I could do well without.
Added to this last night there was noises in our chimney which scared the life out of us, don't hear it in the day just at night. In front of it is a standalone gas fire so to access it, it had to be disconnected. So I rang the Gas Homecare line to see if we was covered, bearing in mine the gas fire is off and hasn't been used in months but apparently its dangerous and all the gas needed to be shut off immediately, obviously a standard procedure but a bit OTT. Anyway a chap came in 40 minutes turned off the gas disconnected the gas fire, got out the pigeon for us, capped the fire because he wasn't allowed to reconnect it and turned back on the gas.
The pigeon must have been down there for days cos it was subdued and wouldn't fly away, so after a phone call to the RSPCA we then had to take it down the Vets where my DD thought they're make it better didn't have the heart to tell her they would probably humanely put it to sleep.
By the time this was done I couldn't settle in my craft room but I did have this card that I had made for Simon Says Challenge, I couldn't make one for the DT before I went away but it seemed right to join in the challenge although I won't be eligible for the prize. The challenge is for Pink and Brown and it gave me a chance to use up the last of these doodlebug papers and the used Simon Says stamps We are Family but I just used the girls.
Have you seen that Nikki has a new shop and she is offering a £25 voucher, the link to her shop is here .

Beautiful card Debby! Love the papers that you have used, the colours are wonderful.
Sending (((hugs))) for your calf *smile*
Glad to hear it was only a pidgeon, we called someone out to noises a couple of years ago and it turned out to be bats, nobody could touch them because they are supposed to be endangered, so we had to wait for them to vacate before we could light a fire! luckily they went before winter came.
Hope you've had a great weekend.
*hugs* Heather x
