Picked Sweet - Paper Play DT Card

 Hello peeps,
I'm late again! Hubby had a day off & we had one of those days where we have been in & out all day, garden center, timber yard, B&Q, Sainsbury's etc, & I've been very naughty in Next & bought a few nice bits & pieces for our home. I asked hubby what her thought of a huge picture that I said I thought would look nice in our bedroom & got the reply "yeah that would look nice" yet that same husband looked at that same picture in our lounge earlier & asked "where's that come from & where's it going?" And he has the nerve to say I never ask his opinion lol.

Today is new challenge day at
