WOYWW No. 236 Christmas: on the Home Run

Greetings WOYWW-ers and followers. The finger surgery has been quite a success thank goodness however it has slowed me down a bit. I'll show some before and after pics in another post. Sorry I haven't been to visit so many blog friends for so long but typing has been a challenge. Thank you for your comments and messages - really appreciate them very much indeed.

Now to the desk - in case you're not familiar with the weekly What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, follow this link to Julia Dunnit's Stamping Ground and find out all about it.

I've been beavering away at the Eastern Yellow cards and we raised about $500 for our group - very pleasing. I've also been pushing along with my own Christmas cards which you can see this week - they're still on the desk.

I have packets of ten finished cards on the left. The trimmed panels, Liquid Pearls, inks and stamps in use (and some not).
I've made a much simpler card than last year using a Kraft card panel stamped with VersaMagic and embossed with white powder in which I mixed a tiny amount of Judikins Aegean Silver for subtle sparkle. The Hero Arts tree stamp is dotted with Liquid Pearls in two different colour-ways.

This is the first colour combination - red and three different greens.
This is the other colour combination - purple is the dark note with pale green, lemon and orange.
I've added two different grasses at the base of the tree and some white ribbon printed with VersaCraft ink - I only have black. I tried Colorbox Crafter's in red and green but it bleeds on the ribbon like everything else. Wasted my cash on it really.

Cheery smiles to all,
