Today’s WOYWW is a special one for me cos I have cleared my desk specifically to show you what I did on Sunday.  You see, I went all the way to a little place called Tidworth in order to take part in a Christmas Card Marathon as hosted by the Two Scrap Ladies (and two nicer ladies you couldn’t wish to meet!)


These photographs manage to show all the cards that I made.  Unfortunately I did not get round to making all 24 as I just ran out of time!


But I did learn a few new things, met some great people, got stuffed with good food – including some utterly delicious bite-sized brownies with buttercream icing and pieces of chocolate on top – utterly yummy!

I don’t think that I could pick out a favourite amongst these great cards, but I do like the wooden reindeer one, the two-candles one, the tree one in the bottom right hand corner and the very simple mistletoe on vellum.  (Heck I might as well name them all as favourites!!)

In any case, I want to say a huge thank you to Julia and Ally for organising such a great day!  (by the way there is a picture of the event on the Two Scrap Ladies blog – you can just about make me out in the purple rollneck at the top of the table on the other side of the table just by the window – did that make any sense – ha ha!!)

OMG! I've got a bunch of cards that look just like that!! Shame the rest of my desk isn't so tidy!
So glad you enjoyed the day - not as much as me tho, and I'm going to add the brownies to my 'must bring to crop and other craft day' list!!
