My desk is my second round of Christmas cards! If you like to see the first 100 click here, .
This round on my desk today is for the Oriental Stamp Arts group that I belong to. A much smaller batch yes, but it kept me busy today!
Die cutting the stamped images
Printing the inside of the card and die cutting an oval frame, which I didn't end up using - wrong color red!!
Oh yes, when I am in the groove I have no problem making a mess!
This was baking while I was cutting and printing:
Fruit and Nut bread, it was really good and that is why so much is missing
Unfortunately you can't see the glittery snow in the picture.
Steve had the great idea of doing the two color edges, he cut them and attached them. The paper was a winter white 100# Strathmore cold pressed card stock. 5x7 in size.
I hope all is gong well in your week
and thank you for stopping by!!
love your first set of chrissy cards, gives me ideas for my card for the troops drive. That bread is making my mouth water
Love your Christmas cards, we don't have snow here at Christmas and it seems really strange to have cards with it on. We are always in the midst of Summer. Thanks for sharing and that bread looks so yummie.
Happy WOYWW & Happy Crafting

I am extremely jealous of your workspace, all those drawers. Beautiful cards, being summer here, we don't use snow themed cards. Would love to though, maybe I'll sneak one in somewhere and see what reaction I get. Never know I might start a new trend for us Aussie's... thanks for sharing.
Your cards are great!! So well organised and I too love your work space...ahhh to have plenty of space to spread out and plenty of light coming in..that is my dream lol! Your bread looks mouth watering.. hmm now I want something to eat! Happy WOYWW.
WoW - very busy there then ?!! Maybe I will sneak in later for a slice of fruit bread :-D

Lovely Christmas card! Fab amount of work space you've got. And yes, the bread looks yummy. Give my piece to Ike. :) WOYWW hugs! Nan G #13
I see you too have an eCraft cutter...do you find it accurate? I find mine has a mind of its own! It is ok on simple shapes, but complicated stuff can e out by 5mm...which is a LOT in my world! #35
Your craft space seems very neat, clean, organised ... Your very in control of it all
The loaf looks yummy
Hi Ginny, I can't believe you are doing round #2 of your Christmas cards! Goodness I was so envious of the completion of your first batch, now you're really putting the rest of us to shame! Hugs xo Crystal
Very nice cards. I am on different tie zone, central and rarely make the post before morning when everyone has faded away.
Lovely craft room, looks very busy, not my fav job doing the inside of my cards but I do like to do them on the computer with fancy papers.
Lovely cards, and oh that glitter, it's always so camera shy.
Save me some of that bread, please!
Happy WOYWW to you!

Your Christmas cards are lovely. I love the soft look of them. I am a glitter queen, so any card with glitter is a friend of mine! Great space you have there! I love Strathmore paper too! Winnie#70

Those are beautiful cards Ginny and looks like some yummy bread :)
Your cards are beautiful Ginny, your husband had a brainwave using the different coloured card for the backing. I really like the first batch you made too. Yummy bread too!
Such a pretty card Ginny, and have to hand it to Steve! great idea for the two slivers of colour. I like to see your workings dotted all over the the desks...very reassuring I can tell you!
I admire your industry Ginny! What a lot you've accomplished.And your cards are soooo pretty too!
Your blogger profile isn't linked to your blog, had to search maxam made to find you. Just thought you'd like to know so that you can link it, andwhen you make a comment, it would be easy to find you. Have a great day! :^) patsy
Well done on all you've accomplished - a lot! And that bread looks so yummy.
I like the coloured edges...only a sliver of colour but makes all the difference!! And I imagined the glitter ;-)
You've got a lot of drawers there! Are they all full? I think you should give us a guided tour next time!!
Hugs, LLJ 36 xx
What beautiful cards, Ginny. I peeked at the first 100 as well - they are simply lovely. I'm so glad I'm not the only person who makes masses of them - I have made, and written 140 - only to discover yesterday I was still some short - so, back to the drawing board!! It's just so good to maintain relationships with folk.
Thanks so much for visiting last week - sorry I didn't get back then - not sure where the days went!
The two-toned narrow border around the stamped image is quite pretty and unexpected. The shimmery snow shows up better when you click on the picture. Nice job!! (Thanks for your visit -- I'm woefully late returning it -- it's almost Wednesday again!) ~ Laura
