Sparkling Snowflakes Cards

Hi Crafty mates,

Wish I could say I felt better, I think someone's got it in for me over the past 2-3weeks.  First I came down with the dreaded stomach bug and had to come home from work, and now I've got a humdinger of a cold that's making me feel under the weather and a bit sorry for myself, basically I'm fed up with sneezing... now I know how Rudolph feels. lol .....  Plus to top it all off, my Son and DIL both came down with the stomach bug in the early hours of Saturday morning and felt really poorly, so my husband had to go and collect Abigail from their house on his way home from work, and she was really niggly all day and also started with it last night, so hence no card making has been done this weekend either!!!   Or decorating, present wrapping, or even getting the tree down from the loft..So I feel really behind this year.  Is there anyone else out there the same? 
So decision made I'm afraid only close family and a couple of close friends will receive handmade cards this christmas.  It has been decided at work that cards are not being sent, money is being given to charity instead, so at least that cuts down the volume a little. 

Well I've posted a couple of cards I made last week, the theme is snowflakes all glittery, red, black and white.  Mainly using a variation of die cuts, glitter papers and ribbon.   simples...
Be back soon.
