Ho Ho Ho! And Desker Wednesday!

Oh my!  It's the Wednesday before Christmas!  And if you are playing on the internet and blog hopping at all you know today is the day you get to see my desk and many others!  This fun event is brought to you by wonderful Julia at the Stamping Ground. I'm not sure how many other crafters will be participating but you do get me anyway.

Strange shadow across my desk or else my camera is acting up.  Upper left you can see a bag of Hershey Kisses left over from making some package toppers (will be showing those Friday).  I have been playing a bit with a 6 x 6 One Sheet Wonder design and have 2 cards complete and 2 in the process.  You can see some stamps that I'm using by the box of glue dots and some Copic markers.  I'll be posting these sometime next week, maybe on Wednesday since you're seeing a bit of them here.

I am slowly winding down making Christmas cards.  I'm still getting a card about every other day and will continue to send them out, even if late.  I probably should be making New Years cards but don't have any stamps that say Happy New Year.

Here's a card I just made after seeing a similar one on Pinterest (but it used beautiful pine trees).  I used the Jolly Friends set by F.S.J. and Winter Fresh Prints paper (retiring the 31st).

This was easy to make and I may have to do this again next year.  Santa is colored with Copic markers.

A bit of Stickles on the hat and beard for a bit of bling.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.  My emotions are all over the place as this is the 2nd Christmas since my mom died and it still is a bit tough.  We will be having dinner with my dad and his new wife (remarried in May) then we'll head into town to spend time with church friends.  Tonight we are going to see the new Star Wars movie with friends and tomorrow night we'll take part in our church Christmas Eve service and communion. 

So, now that you've reached the end of my Desker Post please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the links to the other wonderful gals who take part in this fun blog tour of desks!

Fun cards there, Carol. Have a very special Christmas as you celebrate the birth of our Saviour. The hospital are sending John home tomorrow - plus care packages and Oxygen - so we will be unable to worship with our church family. We will enjoy this time together at home - blessed that John is able to come home at all.
Thank you for your visit and your comments.
Take care. God bless.

I was sure I left you a comment earlier because you had visited me. Now I'm not sure because comments are hidden. Regardless, I hope you have a merry, safe Christmas, filled with good health, happiness, and love. Happy slightly late WOYWW and happy holidays from Bleubeard, Squiggles, and me.
