The gerbils escaped!!!!

I was busy upstairs creating this card and hoped it would fit in with some challenges this week - I've not entered any for ages!! 
Card made for the Papertake Weekly Challenge
See below card for the gerbils adventure!

 ...and whilst I was making this card, I could hear the gerbils, but the noises didn't sound like they were from within the Rotastak. I couldn't believe it when I saw Blackie sitting on top of the bedroom unit and Sid was running around the floor! I managed to pick Blackie up as he's always been the more friendlier of the two, but with Sid it took me an hour and a half!! 
I sat on the floor with a box full of goodies for him - toilet roll middles, sawdust, and food... ready for him to climb into. But no. He spent most of the time climbing the three storey's of Matthew's storage unit. 
I put the Rotastak onto the floor, blocked off the inside hole and then put a loo roll tube inside a now open bit of tubing... I'd forgotten Blackie could go up straight vertical tubes, and then he poked his head out of the hole I'd just made, lol... I soon poked him back in. 
Anyway... Sid had decided that he was going to nibble a big hole in the cloth cover this storage unit has... so I let him get on with it, and then placed the box full of goodies the other side of the hole, to which he climbed into once he'd climbed through his hole... ahhhh... 
I then put him back into his home, both gerbils were very happy to see each other again.
