It is time for another WOYWW, but before I start I just wanted to update you on my laptop.  It is officially dead, but I have rescued all my files from it and a new laptop has been ordered.  Once it is up and running then I will be back to producing better quality photos.  I can't wait as the keyboard on this thing is a nightmare; half the keys don't work first time so I am constantly having to re-type things.  Anyway, I is my desk as part of this weeks WOYWW...actually this was taken late last night hence the lack of tea as I was on my way to bed. On it you can see my Christmas stamps, a cuttlebug embossing folder, and the plates, various ink pads and card.
Here is a Christmas card I made as part of this weeks Less is More challenge to use your eye colour (in my case blue) as the main colour on your card.  Both picture stamps are from Crafty Individuals. I am also entering this into Crafty cardmakers 'Anything goes' challenge for this week.
This is a black and white Christmas card made using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and two Hobby Art stamps; clean, quick, simple and effective (I hope!). I am entering this into CCC 'black and white Christmas', TioT 'make it minimal' and PTW 'Anything goes' challenges. That is all from me for now. Have a great rest of the week.

I like the little row of houses at the bottom of the Santa card - very cute. Good to see a Crimbo card that isn't red, green and gold!
Hugs, LLJ xx

Gorgeous Christmas cards, You are so going to LOVE having a new computer. Interesting how we see our desks in a photo, but not the same way day to day.
Keep smiling and creating

Well considering you took the phot at night, I think it's pretty good - in false light, my desk is really yellow and horrid. Good luck with laptop replacement..somehow they're never quite part of the budget in terms of emergency replacement, but Oh MY! they are so difficult to live without!

I noticed the lack of tea immediately, even before I clicked on the photo! Love the Christmas cards too.
