whats one of them?.....


Good morning everyone I hope your all well and having a great week...I seem to have developed a cough, I have never had a smokers cough but apparently when you give up its normal to get a bad cough its your body's way of clearing itself so I'm quite happy to cough away...I have been gobsmacked at how much my sense of smell has changed and I have managed to stay away from sweet stuff, well so far anyway lol...my lovely Dad isn't too well, hes a bit down but its the time of the year I'm afraid, the anniversary of my Mums death is coming up and he always gets a little down and quiet...we usually get around it by keeping him busy and out of the house as much as possible so I'm taking him out for lunch today then cooking dinner for him...I hate it when hes down it makes me feel so helpless and just feel like hugging him all the time...I think he would get a bit freaked out if I did that mind lol...Phil came home early today and sat in my craft room with me chatting away while I was colouring, he did go very quiet though and I turned round from my desk and he was snoring...am I that boring lol...right now onto my card for today which is using this super cutie stamp  from Sugar Nellie...shes by Diane Duba and is on offer for £2.99 atm, bargain eh?...shes called Believe...I coloured her with distress inks and used these amazing papers from Cosmo Cricket Jolly By Golly collection, the fabulous patterned one is called Smitten Mitten and the image backing and sentiment are from the same range but a sheet of tags this time (what exactly is a Snow Bunny btw lol)...I finished my card with a lush creamy coloured stitched ribbon and bow from my stash...the fab sketch is from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering it for The Ribbon Girl November challenge and the Glitter n Sparkle challenge too...right I'm off to get my war paint on for going out with my Dad, got to look my best for him haven't I and I'm sure he would tell me if I wasn't lol...whatever your up to today have a fab one and enjoy your lunch

Congrats Mina on the no smoking. It's tricky and to be keeping away from the sweet stuff too!! Give your darling Dad a hug from all of us, hate to think of him being down. But I'm sure you'll bring him right out of it.
