The Great Escape

Evening Everyone
Well, no one could say that life living in the same house as your 4 Grandchildren could be considered uneventful!!
Usually when I get up in the morning the house is silent as everyone is still sound asleep (5am has that effect on most sane people lol)
This morning however was a totally different matter with footsteps up and down the stairs and lots of giggling from as early as 4am.
I discovered the reason for all the hilarity when I got home this afternoon and discovered that we had had an escapee during the night. My Grandsons hamster 'Fang' had somehow managed to get out of her cage and climb 3 flights of stairs to the room in the loft.
She managed to evade capture for quite some time, taunting everyone with appearances which looked like she was standing there saying 'Nuh nuh I'm here come and get me' before disappearing again. 
 I'm afraid that the pictures aren't up to much, she wouldn't stay still for long enough!!.
I thought that this card reflected the feelings of everyone in the house. This is how they would have liked to have spent the afternoon.
 It was made using a Lili of the Valley die cut and my Nesties.
The background papers are from a couple of Basic Grey 6x6 paper pads. I added Glossy Accents to the dots on this section.
The 'tree' is actually a Marianne die of a branch.
I would like to enter this into the challenge over at Lili of the Valley where they are looking for cards for Boys or Men.
Let's hope that everyone gets a little more sleep tonight.
All I can say is Thank Goodness it is nearly the weekend.
