Craft Room Disaster and ProMarkers Challenge

Craft Room Disaster! Look away if you are of a nervous disposition - you have been warned!
We woke up at half past two in the morning a few days ago to the sound of something smashing. Of course we leapt out of bed to investigate (ok, it took me a few minutes to haul me and bump out of the bed and another few minutes for Tim to come round...). I thought the sink had fallen off the bathroom wall (?) but of course Tim was more concerned that someone had put a brick through a window or (even worse!) through his car window. But no, it was one of my shelves loaded with crafty bits, finally giving up the ghost and making a bid for freedom from the wall!

Hmmm, perhaps putting those brads in little glasses with no lids wasn't the best idea I've had. We've tried putting the shelf back up today but the wall appears to be made of something resembling sand in that particular area and all we've succeeded in doing is making a bigger hole in the wall. Ah well, back to the drawing board!

But, I've managed to clear my desk so I could spend a bit of time crafting tonight. The following card is for the Passion for ProMarkers blog challenge. This week it was to use the colours Lemon and Meadow Green.
The light wasn't very good by the time I'd finished it so I've scanned the card as well as taking some pics of it...

Supplies used: Image - HG Sing from The Greeting Farm, coloured with ProMarkers and glittered with Lime Green Stickles, Pink Paper from Craftwork Cards, other papers from Pink Petticoat, DoCrafts/Anitas adhesive ribbon, Woodware ribbon brad, Aloha - Doodlebug Simply Sweet Limeade Mini Rub-ons.
