Good afternoon one and all!  Hope you are all keeping well and warm!

Snowing quite heavily here and covering everything in site - brrrrrrr!

At Zippy Mansions we have had an eventful week, on Sunday morning I trotted, bleary eyed to the bathroom at 5.30 a.m. and heard a drip drip drip coming from the airing cupboard.  Upon inspection, the boiler was leaking and the bottom of the airing cupboard was like a swimming pool!  I shouted for himself to come down.  He put a bucket under the drip and back to bed we went.  At 8 a.m. I telephoned the Gas Board and a nice young man came out, stopped the drip and said we needed new parts which he would fit on Tuesday and luckily we still had heating!  Tuesday he came and after 4 1/2 hours of muttering he finally got the parts fitted and we are now firing on all cylinders! 

This is my entry for the LESS IS MORE AQUA CHALLENGE

The stamp used is Personal Impressions Fairy Silhouette.  Card and ribbon are from stash.  You can't see it too well, but I have put glitter coming from the fairy's mouth and on the toadstool.
