WOYWW 69 - I want to go back to Arran

Decent accomodation, beautiful scenery, fab company and the beach all around sigh...........
The only thing I didn't do much of was crafting! - didn't manage to find much time, did do some christmas cards and a birthday card.  So on to the point of today, what is going on with my workspace - firstly and ta for your patience, yes the big fat object on the windowsill is a HP photosmart printer - originally for scrap-booking, currently for printing off records of my cards!
Starting work on Christmas cards as I have a few gifts I would like to make to.  Been using the free stamp I got with craft stamper magazine.  Thought I'd also show the Cosmo Cricket entries I put into the Quick Cards competition. All papers were Golly by Jolly which I picked up last year. Pu1nched circles for the tree and then stamped the tree trunk on acetate using versafine and then clear embossed. The acetate was fixed using woodware maguc vellum.  The second card used the nesting label 1 to frame cut up strips of paper and die cut snowman.
Click on the WOYWW link if you want to start where it all begins. Have a good week if you can.

Beautiful holiday photos - guess you'll be going back then! Super Xmas cards, and your desk looks very well organised and tidy.
Thanks so much for your comment on my Lavinia card - I tried several times to upload it onto the Lavinia site, reducing the size each time, but it kept coming up with a "picture too large" message so I gave up in the end. I can take fairly decent pics, but not very good with the technical side of things! Have a great weekend. Hugs, Sylvia xxx

Arran looks amazing. I went years ago and loved it. I think it's time for a return trip.
Your desk looks very industrious and your cards are gorgeous.

What a beautiful place for a holiday. I'm surprised you got anything done - I would imagine it's so relaxing it would be difficult to do anything but chill. Loving the tree cards, and also the leaves on your blog background; they are making me want to take a long walk. Thanks for visiting me, and sorry it's taken so long to get back to you.
