High Hopes and thank yous

Hiya lovely blogging buddies and how are we all today.   Before I tell you about these cards, I just wanted to say an enormous thank you for all the wonderful comments of congrats that were left in my previous post, you've all made me feel so incredibly happy, you truly are such lovely girlies and thank you very much.

For todays cards I've used some of the gorgeous goodies that the fabby Tracy over at Dies to Dies For sent me to play with......(mmmmmmmmmm loving these papers), thank you luvly (((hugs)))

Stash list:-

Papers - My Minds Eye
Sentiment - Stampin Up
Heart shaped Nestabilities
Ribbon, twine and gems from me stash

Well we are having a nightmare here, again. We're just about getting back to normal after those pesky squirrels ate through the water pipes in the loft resulting in three bedroom ceilings gushing with water and one ceiling completly falling down when would you believe it water has been flooding our downstairs toilet.  Turns out we've had a burst pipe for goodness knows how long and all the water from the both upstairs bathrooms has ended up coming through the downstairs toilet, there's water everywhere.  Rang insurance company they're sending someone out to dry the walls, floors etc but in the meantime hubby has pulled up the laminate flooring and the walls tiles....I tell you, it's like the house that blimming Jack built, there's always something going wrong here....boooo hoooooo....I've had enough.....anyone fancy doing a house swap....lol!!!! and to top it all my car is playing up and hubby's car only came out of the garage yesterday and the same problem is back this evening so it's going straight back to the garage first thing in the morning......why do these things always happen at the same time.....ok whinging over with....

Anyways, I shall pop back soon in the meantime luv 'n' hugs to you all
