Penny Black 176 - Christmas & Snowflakes/Snow & Silver.

Hi everyone, I'm still having to apologise for being a really bad blogger. My internet connection is still a complete nightmare. It has been on and off a lot yesterday evening. Every time I try to upload a photo it seems to be at it's worst. It's driving me nuts. A slow connection makes it really difficult for me to get around and visit people and do my DT commenting.

I couldn't resist making a card to enter this week's Penny Black challenge. I ended up making two very simple cards. I've managed to get Christmas, snowflakes and silver on to my card.

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
Larger snowflake :- Martha Stewart.
Small snowflake punch, embossing powder, ribbon nad gems.

After a day of not getting much done yesterday I was quite pleased to get these cards made. I have another one partly made. My excuse is I got a bit sidetracked. I went to make a cup of coffee yesterday morning and found myself making a mincemeat cake. Yum, I love mincemeat. Then when I had my lunch I made a pineapple and cherry loaf, and after tea I made fairy cakes using gluten free flour. I thought it would be handy to have them in the freezer for when my daughter comes to visit. So I haven't been completely idle but it would have been better if I'd made some more Christmas cards.

I think this card also fits the following challenges :-
Cupcake :- Textalicious.

Thanks for looking and fingers crossed my internet works so I can do some catching up.
