Sunday treats...


Good morning everyone did you have a fab Sunday...look what my lovely Phil made for us while I was doing a bit of crafting, I followed my nose downstairs from my craft room and he had this beauty made...its an apple, cinnamon and raisin tart, even the pastry is homemade and wow it was so delicious (its almost all gone already lol)...did you see he put our initials on the top bless him...he is definitely a keeper isn't he...besides from Phil making his yummy pie, I made soup for tonight's dinner, it always tastes better made the day before so it can infuse although I did have a bit of a fight to keep Phil away from it lol...


we were going to head out for a walk then lunch but the heavens opened and it poured and despite Phil saying 'your not made of sugar girl, you wont melt', I voted for staying in the warm and stuffing my face with pie...well come on be truthful wouldnt you?...right now onto my card for today, how stunning is this beautiful  C.C. Designs Mashi's Muffins Tangled Tori stamp, I love her,so retro and perfectly Christmas, I coloured her with distress inks and used some of the lush Echo Park - Winter Wishes 
paper pad, this is a stunning pad and the colours are just a bit unusual for Christmas which is brilliant and a real change from the usual red and green, the pad and stamp are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished with a sentiment cut from the same pad and a few scattered buttons and pearls...I love this lush sketch its from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering this for the Stampin' For The Weekend challenge and The Crafty Pad challenge...I'm off to town today to pay a few bills, bbbbboooo hhhhiiisssss to paying bills there's loads more stuff we could do with the money isn't there lol, then all the family for dinner tonight...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and keep warm
