What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #236

Christmas card production has been very slow this year. Lack of a permanent work space has severely hampered the process. I have been making them in fits and starts over the last few weeks. Cutting card to size, stamping images, die-cutting and putting everything away, ready to assemble, when I have a minute.

Cherry red cardstock, polka dots and pennies….

….turned into a tumbling gingerbread man, who’s raised a smile everywhere he’s arrived so far.

Pop over to Julia’s place, for more Christmas cheer, on a desk somewhere near you.

PS I’ll be back on Saturday with the next in my set of Christmas tutorials, this time for a simple gift card holder.
