WOYWW 73 - Christmas??

Yikes, only 2 months to Christmas!! Need to crack on with my cards now, so on my mat on the floor today, is a card - clean and simple, black and white - and a tag that I may put on a card too.
The tag's covered with eco green paint left over from my Sunday Stamper entry earlier this week, (didn't want to waste it, lol) and the reindeer is by Tim Holtz, the greeting by Wendy Vecchi..  The stamp I used on the black and white card, is a Penny Black one called "snowy park" and it's really pretty. I bought it at the Worthing stamp show in May I believe and have been dying to use it!


Looking around the room, I was rummaging in my Christmas drawers (some of them) looking for some stamps - they live behind the green drawer unit in the first picture so it takes a bit of shuffling to get at them! Still, since my small reorganisation after the phone fixing week from earlier this month, they're easier to get to (I used to have to lean over the top of one of the wooden drawer units that used to stand where the cardboard ones now live, and bearing in mind that in front of the cardboard drawers my distress inks and melt pot live, that was not easy!)

I am off now to our host Julia's at the Stamping Ground to spend an evening chasing round the desks and cupboards of the crafting stratosphere to see what you've all been up to - I will leave comments where I can, blogger and time permitting!  Have a great Wednesday. All being well, this post will schedule early and I'll link it up when I get to work.

I'm suffering storage envy now - what I wouldn't give for space enough for the drawer space you have, difficult in accessing notwithstanding. I really like that snowy scene too:)

Oh Helen, I just love that Snowy stamp, it reminds me of a photo I took in Central Park NY a few years back while on a Christmas shopping trip.
Your stamp storage is so organised too.
I’m ashamed to say that my stamps are just thrown into a few drawers and are in a right old mess.

Thanks for stopping by my blog

That B & W card is gorgeous and I love the deer tag, too. At least something good came from the phone disaster organization!

Thanks so much for the sweet words you left on my blog. I'm still moving slowly, but trying to start visiting people who visited me. Yes, I use my microwave for dyeing fabrics AND drying flowers. However, it is not for food! Happy very belated WOYWW (# 15).
