getting all sentimental...

Good morning everyone...did you all enjoy the blog hop yesterday, didn't the DT girls do amazing work...I hope you remembered to leave a comment on all the blogs so you get a chance of winning one of the Mo's vouchers...well yesterday I had a crafting day and my lovely Phil made pies for dinner, our Daughter, partner and my wonderful Dad came for dinner too...lovely night...we had one of those conversations yesterday, all you married people will know what I mean...I was in my craft room and Phil had the TV in the kitchen really loud, so when I heard him come out the kitchen I shouted down 'your TV is really loud, I cant hear myself think'...his reply 'I haven't switched it up...it was that loud ten minuets ago'??????????...now what on earth does that mean, after a few seconds thinking I started laughing and he couldn't understand what I was laughing at...it wasn't that the TV had got louder, I had thought it was loud since it had been switched on but hadn't had the chance to tell him is all lol...Phil's a wonderful chef, cooking to me is a chore, I think its because I spend so many meals alone, my idea of cooking is a bowl of cereal...Phil cooks himself full meals with dessert...my card for today is for our new challenge at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge, this week is the amazing Claudia's choice and she chose Out of the Box Sentiments, so use something that's not the normal sentiment, if you check out the DT's blogs you will see what I mean, I used this gorgeous new Magnolia stamp from the Winner Takes it all collection, shes called Basket Tilda, isn't she so cute with her basketball...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these wow papers from the Authentique Blissful paper pad, the pad and stamp are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I finished my card with a printed sentiment, some buttons and a grey satin knot, the fab sketch is from Tuesday morning sketches challenge, The Ribbon Reel challenge and I'm also entering it for A spoon full of Sugars Birthday challenge...I'm off to the supermarket today with my wonderful Dad and Phil and maybe out to lunch or some of Phil's lush pie (he made a secret one so we could have some left as everyone takes bits home with them)...whatever your up to today have a wonderful one
