WOYWW 550: Nearly Ready

So this time next week it will be Christmas Day: help!  To be honest, I am nearly ready: only a few more gifts to get and a trifle to organise.  I even got some last minute cards made yesterday.
Here my desk shows me in mid process, as I was trying to finish them before heading out for my annual Christmas lunch with crafting friends (no Eva unfortunately, as it is the week when she has to work on a Tuesday). 
Just to prove that I finished them!  Thank you to Shaz (and Doug) and LLJ for the Christmas cards.  I have had no chance to post any in return, so here is a virtual card for you and all my WOYWW friends. 
I know that many of you will not be joining in next week as you will be far too busy, so I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas and thank you for your friendship in 2019. To find out more visit The Stamping Ground, where Julia keeps us all in order!

Happy Christmas to you, too. I hope to join in next week, not sure yet if I'm going to my brother's or having it here this year. Well done on being nearly ready - I think I am too (food apart, depending what I need ha ha ) just a bit extra for my brother. Helen #7

Beautiful cards Sarah & a Happy Christmas to you too, just in-case something steps in the way of me getting here next week. It's all systems go here, clean up then shopping over the next couple of days. I too have a handful of gifts to buy but most are wrapped and ready to go now. Happy WoywW Tracey #5

Hi Sarah. Wish I was nearly ready but what will get done will and the rest - well I don't suppose it will result in the end of the world. :-)
Happy Christmas to you and your family.

Morning Sarah. Thanks for the virtual Christmas card - it's lovely! Yes, I'm all set apart5 from the perishable food. My Christmas will be an extended event as I go to Chris and Adrian on Christmas Eve - so will be coming past! Then on 27th the whole family arrive here for four days... Chaos but great family fun - lots of competitive games are all the rage in our family - Settlers of Catan, Ticket to ride, to name but two!
Take care. God bless. Have a truly beautiful Christmas.

Nice card Sarah, thank you for thinking of us all.
Hope you enjoyed your annual Christmas lunch - I hadn't realised the schools had broken up.
Have a lovely Christmas if I don't see you posting next week.
Hugs, Neet 11 xx

What a lovely medallion that is Sarah, makes a lovely card. Glad to read that you’re on top of things, but no surprise to me at all, you are Mrs Time Management when it comes to being busy. Warm wishes and good tidings for a wonderful Christmas!

HI Sarah, thats a beautiful card, and I hope you have a lovely Christmas too. More or less sorted here now, just a bit of food shopping left, and decorations to put up. Hope you have a lovely Christmas, Hugs, Shaz #2 X

We are all in a mad dash to be ready for Christmas! At least I got my cards out early so it is just the food I need to worry about! Merry Christmas to you!

Hi Sarah, I can only imagine how terribly busy you are with your job and all kinds of commitments! Even I'm finding this last minute rush a bit stressful despite having very low-key Christmas preparations. Wishing you a lovely time with your family and friends and hope to see lots of you next year! xx zsuzsa #19

One or two gifts have not arrived yet from Online, but one is for me and another for my husband, so not a disaster. We have Dennis parents coming to stay so not sure if I will have time(or remember) to post next week. Happy WOYWW and have a great Christmas Angela #21

Hi Sarah, I seem to be late getting round this week. Yes they are Sizzix dies you can see on the shelves but lots of them are very old mostly from when Tim Holtz first had his own range. The cards are lovely, gorgeous design. Happy belated Christmas woyww, Angela x13x
