WOYWW 174? Christmas cards

Howdy fellow Wednesday Desk Hoppers and Snoopers!

This week I am flat out into Christmas.  I bought myself the Card fancy frame flip-its die by Sizzix last week and I made the one you see at the back of my desk in blue with a Happy Birthday stamp on it.  Then I got to thinking about other shapes I could use and designed some in Corel Draw which is my program of choice and sent them to my eCutter.  So now I have a circle, square and tree flip it set of cards.

You can also see the two clear boxes of Christmas embellies ready to decorate the ones I have cut along with a whole lot of other stuff on my desk that were left over from last years Christmas season.

Thanks for taking a peek at my desk in Cape Town, South Africa, now I am off to look at your desk if you have joined Julia over at Stamping Ground

  1. Hi, I've been trying not to think about Christmas yet but I guess I'd better get going! I like the look of those flip it cards, clever to make your own. Hope you have a lovely day and week.

  2. Bella I love the tree card, it is so cute. I am so envious of you. I am still working through my autumnal cards but I keep staring at my Christmas and winter supplies and they are beggin me to come on over and play. Soon, soon I keep telling myself.

    Your desk is still looking rather tidy. Mine is an abomination. Come play if you can.

  14. Ah you're too clever..but haven't you just put the sizzix die out of work now? See, I don't understand these things! I'm backing away from Christmas for a while, so am full of respect Belinda, that you're doing and not just talking about it!
