Snowman for Allsorts!

Morning Peeps.
First I need to say sorry for not being a good bloggy peep this week. It has been a hard week for us and we are missing our dog Zac so much in so many ways. He has left such a huge hole bless him and we are all a bit lost and wombling around the house in a muddle.

I got an email from Krista this morning to say I had got in the top 3 over on saturated canary challenge blog and it had my top 3 blinky attached which cheered me up so much, thankyou team ST!!!xxxxx

So this morning I have been trying to keep myself busy with a few challenges. They are....
 allsorts challenge blog which is Black, White and one other. I have to say that is sooooo much harder than you think!!!!!!
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas Traditions challenge - I love snowmen and alwys associate them with chrimbley traditions, they are just so much fun to make and even more special when you can make them on christmas day, oh I hope there is snow on christmas day!

I had an order to make a 10 pack of chrimble cards for one of my mum's friends who loves Newcastle United.
So, my colour choices were Black, White and blue ( .....I hope this is OK as there is a teeny squidge of  colour to compliment for his nose and holly...)
I just had to use my Funky Hand Rainbow Stripey Stripes download for the Black and white stripes and the snowman is one of my fav's from Tiddly Inks, warm wishes.

If you look really closely you will see the Newcastle United logo just on the front of my little snowman's snuggly hot mug of cocoa!!! I snuck it in using photoshop and I think its a super way of sneaking something personal into a card because its really subtle, the reason I chose the blue as my one other for allsorts is because of the blue in the logo! 

Today we are just going to pop to B&Q and pick up a little tree to plant for Zac. Scott and I are a little concerned as Little Mo got upset on thursday night when it was too foggy to see his Zac star so we think a little tree in his little garden bench planter in the front garden will be better, Little Mo thinks its a super idea so he can sit and chat with Zac so thats lovely.

Have a fab day peeps! see you all on my bloggy womble tonight.....might take me a while as when I clicked my reader on this morning I have 423 posts to catch up on........:)

Huge hugs and thankyou so much for all your lovely emails and support this week xxxxxx
