Let it Shine

So, my plan for this years Christmas card was that I would come up with a design and do them all the same.  Brilliant idea!
I went to a papercraft show at the Doncaster Domw and saw this amazing glitter and thought I'd make a simple black card with a glittery white snowflake on.  Another good idea.
And then it all went wrong, I ran out of time,  I couldn;t get the glitter to work properly, the black and white paper I'd bought to use on the cards wasn't the same white as the snowflakes. 
I only made 2 of this type but have carried on the snowflake theme.
I'd like to enter this collecion for the OAP1945's MSE Challenge - Let it shine - as they're all sparkly.

Sorry these last 2 are sideways - I tried to rotate them but blogger was having none of it and am just too tired to argue tonight!

The Prodigal Daughter

I have been a very bad blogger - months since my last post but I hope you'll accept me back.  I can't promise I'll be any better but I'll have a go.
I made myself a coaster advent calendar but then lost the camera and hung around for days hoping to blog it but finally gave up this morning and took it into work.  Guess what I found this evening!

So here is an amended version that I've made as a gift for a colleague who lurves her holidays.  She keeps a little slip of paper on her desk to countdown the days until her next one.  This is to countdown the last 4 working weeks before her hols.  We count "get-ups".
