A Gem of a Chall. #11 Sketch

Sorry I,m late with me post had a bit of a calamity this morning, I put me
washer on last nite with a dark wash, went to check on it lights flashing
NEVER done that before, it wouldnt drain wouldnt spin..just what I need
this time of year...phoned up a repair guy Bosch dont want anything to do with it..
Why ?? Its over 8yrs old!!! the man on phone says "is your outlet pipe froze"
The washer is in me utility room & its VERY cold in there...Hubby & me had to
take off work top pull out washer & YES pipe was froze..so after mopping up
water having a clear out of the utility room were all good to go..Phew...

 Well folks hope your safe n well?? Weve had MORE
snow & the North Yorkshire Moor roads were closed yesterday afternoon..
Wow another month has flown by...many thanks for your awesome
entries for our last chall..hop over to see the winners at

DISTRESSING now how easy is that? It dosent have a theme

Christine thank goodness it was a frozen pipe and not something that would cost a fortune!! Love your card, those soft green colours are just beautiful and I am so loving the new images. Thanks for nudging me mrs, I had that challenge in mind when I was making the card but totally forgot to add the link. Old age!! or maybe my outlet pipe is frozen too lol.
