A very good morning to everyone and I can't believe its that day of the week again that comes around ever so quickly...when we get to visit all manner of crafty and artistic individuals worldwide and their wonderful workspaces. Being a nosey inquisitive sort...I love it!...why don't you hop over to the wonderful host Julia at the Stamping Ground and take part yourself...its addictive as once you start you'll be hooked!Firstly apologies to everyone for last week as I didn't get to visit many people;work once again got in the way; I'm hoping to do much better this week as I've a day off work tomorrow as working this weekend again so hopefully I will get to you just not likely it won't be today.

production line in operation 

As you can see from my desk taken last night my Christmas production line is still in full swing and I'm averaging 1-2 cards a week so well on track...there are several that are quite similar (due to the new Heartfelt Creations stamp set mega-buy is getting put to very good use!)so I'm making sure I still make some in my usual style; as is the one under's a cute Wild Rose Studio stamp which was a magazine is half my stash of stamps and papers it would appear...I think I buy every one each month!As you can see by last photo bottom left my Christmas scrap pile is ever growing  and I do need to sort it soon !..also you may spot my sad reluctance to even  through away used tape.... ive just spotted some low tack on top of the grand calibur !..oops should have binned that really !

  2. Looking at your Christmas stuff gives me itchy fingers! I am mostly a digital crafter, but occasionally cross over into the real world. Your desk has inspired me to have a go at making some cards. Thanks for sharing.
