Penny Black Saturday

As promised I'm back with my creation for this weeks

The theme this week is Winter Wonderland including a fabby blog hop and competition too. Fabulous examples from the DT again this week, these girls put their heart and soul into this blog challenge and every week come up trumphs. Thanks girls for another fabulous challenge.

I decided to do something different this week instead of a card.

Snowman Soup

(Sorry about the dreadful picture roll on the lighter nights and days :) )

I took a mug and addeda sachet of Hot chocolate, a candy cane and some small marshmallows. I popped them into a A4 Cello bag and sealed it at the top then tied curling ribbon around the top.

The poem I found browsing the net and I'll think you will agree it's super idea not mine of course but perfect for my Sale on the 5th Dec.

Perfect for a stocking filler. I will be charging £2.00 for one what do you think...bargain or is that too much?

I have made lots more of these made with other images so will share them with you when I have tied the tags on.

Don't forget to join in the fum over at the hop!

Thanks for your comments about my blog uploading, I'm still having trouble with it but it looks like my puter is running slow so will need to get it a clean me thinks.
