WOYWW 166....Erm...sorry but its.....Festive!!!

Hello WOYWW'ers! Its been a few weeks since I joined in Julia's Mahooosive world wide Blog-a-thon! If you have arrived at this page thinking "What's this woman on about???" then Hop over here and check her Blog out for the in's N out's of what I am on about & you too could join in on the weekly hop-a-roony! Go on show us your's!

I have finally succumbed to the festive card making! I have been playing around & putting together some of the Hunkydory Christmas Kits I bought from Create & Craft. There so easy to use & great fun too and this way I get to make loads of cards for everyone to have a made one! If I gave everyone I know one of my "Special" made cards every year I would take all year to get them done, it can take me that long to do just one sometimes!

As you can see I have been on a roll past few days. I have really enjoyed skiving off & just sitting here making cards all day, reminder to self..."Clean House"....:-)

So far I have done about 30 all together and used the some of the Vintage & Traditional Kits, I have still to use any of the Elegant or Cute Kit's. From the four kits I bought they say you can make at least 80 cards, however, they are so generous with all the die cuts & papers & card stock I think I will get about 150 at least!.....another reminder to self....."Go do a food shop".......;-)

Right that's it for this post I must get some sleep, been up till all hours in here! Its this new desk & room layout, I am having so much fun in here! I never want to leave this happy crafty place, I must get back to the real world though tomorrow, boo.......but then I will have to visit you at your desks.... yeah....another excuse to sit here! Whooo---hooo.....I am going a bit bonkers so I better wrap this up! Take care everyone & have a crafty week!

Oh wow. You really made up for not being here for awhile. You have the most beautiful cards. I'm not a card maker, so I am in awe of any one who can.

No linky, but here's my post:

I thought I'd get a head start on my desk hopping Lavinia even with Mr Linky going AWOL. ;D
Your desk certainly works for me this morning because it's so wintery here today...the wind is blowing a hoolie, hail lashing down and generally yuk! So a little festiveness works well and boy have you been working well.
Amazing creativity going on...obviously you're new space is working for you!
Enjoy ~ Neesie (no number as yet)

Hi Lavinia,

I have an envelope ready for you but I can't find your address (again). I sent an email to you - would you mind sending me your address again (for the umpteenth time). My sincere apologies. I've put a few little extras in it for you being so patient.

Your cards look great. I haven't thought of working with kits before - what a great idea.

I cannot look at the pictures! Sitting in blazing sun not thinking of Christmas lol but I do know where your coming from, I was making 200 Xmas cards at one point but drastically cut back. Happy Xmas card making.

Wow... scarily efficient, can't believe you're getting so many Christmas cards done. And I really hear you on the not wanting to go back to the real world - can't we all just stay in Craftland?!

Hi Lavinia,

I thought I had left a comment but guess I didn't..... I have a package waiting to be mailed to you but I've lost your mailing address (again - I know, I'm so sorry). I also sent you an email earlier in the week. Please email.

Yesterday was my blog anniversary - candy will be announced soon. As part of the candy I'm offering up something made by me -- so come visit and cast your vote (if you've already been - thank you. I'm trying to visit everyone this week so haven't checked in on my comments lately).

Lovely cards - don't you just love Hunkydory? They do make some fantastic kits...
