WOYWW 237 Christmas Cards!

Last snoop at work desks around the world before Christmas!
If you want to join in the fun, pop over to Julia's blog the Stamping Ground for all the details
Here's my desk from yesterday late afternoon, early evening.


I've been very busy trying to get my Christmas cards made in time and this year despite having to make them one handed, I've managed to get all the ones that need posting, completed and in the post. Here's a selection of them, I had already sealed some of the envelopes before I remembered to take photos!

I've used a variety of stamps, distress ink pads and makers, Archival ink, Versamark, seafoam embossing powder, and stardust embossing powder.
I'm also entering this for the Country View Crafts blog challenge

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all 
a Merry Christmas 
and a 
Happy New Year!

Karin x

Lovely cards. It is just a busy time each and every year, seems to be less and less time to prepare. Have a great WOYWW and enjoy all the things before the big day. #7

Oh my gosh Karin, your cards are beautiful..and one handed just makes them amazing! Im usually very frightened by these great postcard/collage images..you've made it look wonderful.
Hope you're less one-armed every day!
