Yet another work desk Wednesday

Hi
I totally forgot it was WDW today until about 10 mins ago. I was getting all my card kit stuff out in front of me to sort out the DT kits and I remembered I was going to take a piccy of it all this week. I can't believe it's been a week already since I was thinking everything would have arrived by today.
So here's what I'm looking at today:
 It's almost a sea of kraft, lol! I went for a mix of kraft brown with bright fun patterns in the papers and a quirky font to add messages. I've got a kit to make samples with in that brown paper bag and something that shouldn't be on my desk, my cup of warm Ribena, eek! Drinks and paper don't mix I better move that quick. I'm trying to keep drinking, got a horrid throat/chest chill thing trying to take me down, I bet everyone is the same this time of year when the weather changes.
I love these little card blanks too with the messages already on and those cute mini kraft tags although looking at those did make me think I've not got a ribbon to put in the kit, I might pop some twine in to work with the whole kraft thing. I picked out some large blank tags too so when people are using the kit they can use up any small leftover bits to make some gift tags.

I've just got my Sass catalogue out too I'm thinking of adding a little bit more colour in and there's a fun tartan paper in there I'm thinking of adding in.I don't know why but I just love tartan and kraft for Christmas cards, is that just me or do you think it works for Christmas?
Pop back to Juilia's blog to peek at more desks today, http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/

Love the bordered cards and the tags. I've never tried Ribena hot; perhaps that would help to keep the inner crafter warm on a chilly night.

I stopped by earlier, then my computer froze up. Not your fault (grin) it just got a bit overwhelmed by all that Christmas stuff. That is a lovely card base and good neutral color. Have a great weekend (#1).
