Sweet Pea Stampers Fire

Hi all what a night last night, we had a thunder storm around
half three this morn, then it absolutely chucked it down
for ages. It was so hard it started coming down the chimney
so we had a drip drip drip until it stopped raining.
I got up to go to the loo
and had a nice surprise in the bathroom our pet hamster sat on the
edge of the bath.

She had managed to climb out of the top hatch of her cage
(it had been left open),
although it's been open before and she's never
climbed out, it can't have been the easiest thing to do.
I've got visions of her swinging like your on monkey bars,
to the Mission Impossible music.
I am so glad i got up because god knows where
she could have ended up.

Anyway onto my card for today it's for the
challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers.
The fab theme this week is
Earth, Wind and Fire.
I have chosen Fire as my birthday is a fire sign.

The stamp i have used is called 'Shining on'
She has been coloured with promarkers and the background
i used a big and juice stamp pad.
The papers are from DCWV once upon a time stack.
gold mirri card, gold ribbon, flowers are papermania
and I've used card candy in orange for the centres and corners.
The leaves are from a Martha Stewart and Woodware punches,
i used card sprayed in orange cosmic shimmer mist.
I glittered her wing with star dust stickles glitter glue.

I'll get back to my housework now before
tennis starts (come on Andy).
