If you're wondering what WOYWW means and what it's all about then pop over here and be blown away by all the amazing crafters out there in blogosphere.

I've been a bit more organised this week not only with posting in What's on your Workdesk, Wednesday, but also lots of Christmas cards - with the help of MaryAnne.  MaryAnne has very kindly shared some Christmas printables which you can find here.  I've made some Father Christmas belt cards in the past and I absolutely love the simple but effective design of them - they are super quick to make and look wonderful.  

So, what else is on my desk - a very disgusting Silhouette cutting mat!  I've cleaned it and resprayed it several times and it will keep me going for a bit longer. 
Printables from MaryAnne

Tree and Reindeer design
I used a design from the Silhouette store to make the Reindeer Christmas card and you can see the Seasons Greetings on the mat - it was a bit tricky to cut and took a couple of attempts to get the correct thickness of paper/card but it cut like a dream in the end. 

Thanks for taking the time to look around my desk and hopefully this week I'll get around to a few of yours.  Have a good week, and happy crafting :)

By heck don't they look good! :) Actually I just love the effect of the simple circle over the embossing. Funnily enough I was watching some craft show or another on one of the shopping channels and I noticed that a new stamp set they were selling ALSO used the font I used for the circle text. In case you care, I think it would work well for sentiments - FoglihtenNo04, but there is also an 06 version that is a little plainer but still cute. I usually at least mention, if not link to, the fonts I use but I think I may have missed that out for these.

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog and so pleased you liked the printables!

The Santa belt cards are fabulous, what a great idea. Simple cards are often the most effective,

Those cards are great Mary-Anne's printables are so lovely, one of these days I'll get round to using them and not just saving them! The deer card is really lovely, worth the effort.

Great cards, especially the simple belted Santa. I've got a buckle sort of die that I had thought to do something similar though not a Santa. Your machine cut deer is really fine and looks lovely.
Enjoy the week and thanks for visiting me.
It's just hit 39C in the shade here so my three loads of washing are bone dry and back in the cupboard!!!
