Happy Bank Holiday,
                                 I feel really guilty as i haven't watched the jubilee celebrations or even taken part in any celebrations. But i have enjoyed  having a few days chilling........
Its my friends daughters 18th next Saturday I've already made the bunting so i needed to make the card, apparently she loves sponge bob square pants . Punch art is ideal for this style of card even though its quite time consuming. Please watch my blog all week as I'm hoping to post a punch art card each day.

Hi Everyone and Happy Jubilee Weekend,
                                                         My husband and I decided we wanted to do something together so we bought a marine tank. We have bought quite a large tank which will take us some time to build up up to the marine aquarium we are aimimg for. Corals and anenmomes will be the main items but crabs, fish and shrimps will be added.
In hindsight we should have maybe read up alittle on marine life as i didn't expect it to be so complicated.
All the rock in the tank is live and we had to buy special water which has been filtered three times. 
We then had to add the rock and water and leave for a few days and then test the water.
 Wednesday came and we could add some crabs so we added 4 hermit crabs this was so stressful as apparently they fight if one crab takes a fancy to another ones shell they will literally drag the crab out of the shell and climb in.
Thursday we had a small red crab on the floor of the tank so we assumed it had died but we still counted 4 live crabs. Friday two red crabs appeared again we thought were dead.
What a stressful week , Saturday arrived and off to the pet shop we went.
A lovely guy at the shop explained that crabs shed their skin and the move to a new tank could have caused this premature shedding. Phew..........

Anyway i'm going to share this venture with you all over the next few months.
