A spoonfull of sugar dt

Before i tell you about todays challenge on ASFOS i have a question, "whose husband is smarter than a fifth grader?" I dont see any hands, so let me tell you i could tear my hair right out by the roots today.  Firstly i am just about to go right over the edge as it is our Jewish new year tomorrow evening which means in my husbands book invite a million people for dinner, then he decides to change the carpets upstairs in all the bedrooms, aswell as bring me a new lounge suit, now i see you all thinking that you would just love that to happen. RIGHT! wrong, not the day before New year celebrations.  To top it all off, he has a terrible flue running temperatures in the 40"s and i am sure that he has done all of the above with good intentions, but how do you disconnect a computer without shutting down first so that all your settings get saved?  i ask you with tears in my eyes. I came home today to find all the cupboards unpacked beds disassembeld, computers unplugged, boxes everywhere and four strange black men working in my house.  Ok so after a day from hell i have now restored SOME of the damage, but i have lost my skype and various other goodies.  I just feel like going to bed and never getting up EVER!!
Now that all of that is out of the way i shall try to up my mood a little by telling you about my card for the dt challenge on A spoonfull of sugar.  We are being sponsored by Bunny Zoe who have some amazing new stock in their inventory so this may be the challenge you dont wanna miss out on.  Our challenge today is "Animal crackers" anything with an animal on it.  For my card i am using one of my new Kanban images that i have had for a few weeks and not seen ink yet.
Colored with my copics, used a bit of lace from my stash, flowers from the same place and so are the pearls.
Unfortunately i didnt take note of my copics or the name of this particular Kanban, but they are all adorable.  I was actually wondering if it is the same artist who does the lotv stamps as they are very similar, so if you know please let me know.
thats me for now while i go bury myself
chat later in the week when things are looking a little rosier.
