  9. You are so organised... havent remotely thought about C cards yet. Love the first card and your desk looks a hive of activity. Have a lovely week. With love & God Bless, Caro x (#10)

  10. Beautiful Christmas card, love it. Your desk just looks as though it's waiting for your return. Wishing you a happy woyww and a lovely crafty week, Angela x9x

  11. Great Christmas card! Have a wonderful rest of the week. Dorlene #22

  12. Oh my goodness, Christmas cards already! It only seems like yesterday that we had Christmas! I love your beautifully organised desk too. Thank you for your visit and I'm glad you liked the kitty pic. I tried my new food processor today and it was brilliant - once I'd sussed out how to assemble it properly. The instructions leave quite a bit to be desired. Once I've done it a few times it will be second nature, I am sure. I made some delicious vegan pate and it went really well. I'm very, very pleased!

    Happy WOYWW,
