Christmas card frenzie! (WOYWW)

In some ways it is not hard to guess what is on my desk today!  It is covered with copies of our Christmas letter which I am in the process of folding, and to the back you can see the already addressed envelopes, and in the wooden tray to the left of the desk are all the cards I have made. The pen is there ready for me to write the cards and I am being fortified by a large mug of tea!  Why am I showing you my desk in its state of organised chaos?  It is as part of WOYWW, the brain child of Julia, where we all get to nosey into each others work space.  Take a look and join in with us all!
This Christmas card is my entry into this weeks Less is More 'red and green' challenge. It was made using free paper and red card, and a spotted red Christmas tree embellishment which I was given for my birthday! I am also entering this card into Stampin for the weekend 'use some texture' as the embellishment is corrugated.
This second card I am entering into Kaboodle Doodles 'circles' challenge as the wreath is stamped into a circle shape and PTW 'anything goes' challenges.
Finally I am entering this card into My Time To Craft's 'snowman' challenge, Paper play 'green, pink and cream' colour challenge, and Crazy4Challenges 'snowman' challenge.
That is all from me for now.  Have a great rest of the week everyone.

Super cards... you are doing well getting stuck in and I especially love that snowman one with alternative colour scheme from the traditional.

Great cards. I'm inspired by the tree and snowman being half on the strip of paper and half off. I shall totally use that for my cards. Thank you.

cheers, rachel #50
