Welcome to the LAST What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday of 2016

Morning all,

Hope you are all enjoying a BRILLIANT Christmas break, having a splendid time with your family and friends. I also hope that Santa was kind to you on Sunday (Saturday, Monday or whenever you opened your gifties) .. did you get loads of craft goodies? We did Secret Santa on Boxing Day, with the surrogates - thanks for your company and our presents peeps

Me? Well I took a day off from crafting, but you can't keep an obsessive crafter down for long and I just can't stop myself making Christmas cards - must be because of the season......



The front, back and inside of my cards along with the front and back of the envelope
Materials used:
  • White 10cm square, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of red card and two pieces of white card each cut to 9½cm square
  • Two pieces of white card cut to 9cm square and then die cut using the My Favorite Things snowflake die
  • Hero Arts sentiment stamped using Verafine onyx black ink
  • Petaluma snowflake image stamped using Memento Paris dusk ink

Clean, Simple, THE perfect solution for a batch make - wonder if I'll remember this when the time comes to run up those last few cards in November of 2017!

I'll be entering this for following challenges:-
  1. Through The Craft Room Door - December 27th challenge - ANYTHING GOES
  2. Holly Jolly Christmas - December challenge - ANYTHING (Christmas) GOES
  3. Crazy challenge - challenge No. 238 - EVERYTHING GOES
  4. Dream Valley challenges - challenge No. 146 - CHRISTMAS
  5. Crafting when we can - challenge No. 134 - CHRISTMAS

And now, since it IS the last WOYWW of 2016, here's a sneaky peek at my desk. I shall be entering this pic over at Julia's WOYWW challenge No. 395, where I am entry #4

Well done Kathy for continuing to make the Xmas cards. I made a couple and then moved on to something else. Always regret not having made more. No craft goodies for me this chrissy but I did get a new kindle. Very happy.

You have a fab day too and Happy New Year when it comes around. Looks as if you are all set for 2017 as you are making cards in readiness for next Christmas already. Nice too!

Hi Kathy, I too will be carrying on with Christmas Cards. Did it for the first time last year, and ended up with more than I needed, and it was so less stressful than my usual start in November! Have a great week and Happy New Year, Hugs, Shaz #3 xxx

Viv's Visuals said...

I should carry on making cards too - but rarely do! Resolution maybe???
Lovely CAS cards! x

AliWade said...

Happy WOYWW and Happy New Year for Sunday. Christmas cards! Your's are fabulous - but I am very happy to forget about them until the autumn. I found a pad of lovely Easter paper that I bought last year, so looking forward to some spring designs in the coming weeks. BTW - I love the background of your blog. Ali x #14

Julia Dunnit said...

I can't get this to PC is doing strange stuff here! Love the pic that includes your gorgeous one in a big comfy chair.. you remember how nosey I am! Is that a speaker on the left? Infuriatingly I cant tell, or think what else it could be!

Another lovely card Kathy, I'm looking forward to making some more springlike cards, but intend to carry on with Christmas as well!

Kathyk said...

Actually, it's an OTT light!

Oooh, I do like those Christmas cards - the simple and elegant style does it for me every time! Thanks for visiting me already, I'm glad you had a great Christmas - thank you for the support on my blog, it's much appreciated!
Wishing you a happy and healthy 2017!!

Pat said...

I love your snowflakes Kathy and great that you are still making Christmas cards to add to next year's total. I treated myself to a Misti as a sort of Christmas pressie and I have decided when I make any Christmas cards I will make two or three the same to build up a supply for next year. Whether I stick to this is debatable but I will try as I was making right up to the wire this year. x

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

Looks like you're ahead of the game for next year's Christmas! You're right - ride the wave while it lasts - otherwise you might have to start on the 2017 cards in July! Happy New Year and thanks for visiting earlier! zsuzsa #15

Sharon Koole said...

Well done for creating a few more cards. I have 'tidied' all my Christmas stash away .... Let's hope it will all come out again before next Christmas!!
Have a happy WOYWW, my 'boys' are napping so I have managed to get on the laptop to wish you a happy New year.

Super card Kathy, but at this rate you will have no need of an emergency batch make next November. I, on the other hand ...

Angela Radford said...

Hi Kathy, thanks for the visit to mine. I always mean to carry on making Christmas cards for the following year but it never seems to happen yet it's at this time of the year when we feel in the mood to make them so I can see why you are still at it. Have a great woyww, Angela x 6

Elizabeth said...
