Congrats May on your win at Kay's site! Love the cards. I have tons of old Stampin Up! stamps and still buying more. I eventually will have to quit or run out of room. Love the ribbon. Love the looks of that food too! Have a great week and thanks for sharing. Vickie #68

Ooh beautiful lace you found - nice one May! Gorgeous cards, I'm glad I'm not the only one 'at it' already :0) Have a great WOYWW :0)

ps -just saw your link on the right - I recently 'found' Crafty Emblies & think their stuff is wonderful and at great bargain prices too! Very impressed.

MaggieC said...

I am coming over for lunch, that plateful looks delicious. Those cards look great so far. I look forward to seeing what else you decide to try. I have done most of my Christmas cards, it is just all the dozens of birthday and anniversary cards that need to be done at this time of the year. Have fun. xx #102

Glenda said...

Lots of Christmas going on here! And that recipe looks delicious!

Helen said...

Hi May - we love Nasi Goreng (oh that's how you spell it!!) at our house. You reminded me we haven't had one in a while. We always make it in a huge batch and eat it over a few days - it matures like curry or stew! WOYWW Hugs to you from Helen 15

sandra de said...

Such wonderful and delicious goodies on your desk. It is late at night and now I want to eat rice!!

Eliza #24

Lisa said...

ohh. those cards are so beautiful. I, too, saved that recipe off Di's blog, although I haven't made it yet. Guess I'm going to have to move it up on the list. Happy WOYWW. LisaDV #124

Danielle said...

Bernice said...

Beautiful cards, May - and how useful will it be to have them ready so early!
Bernice #140

Elizabeth said...

Hi May, I'm just chuckling at Jo's reaction to your Christmas cards - she can't even bring herself to write the word let alone make a card :)) Love the lace - it's beautiful and I'm sure you will make something equally beautiful with it. Congratulations on your wins - yes, I read of your latest win today - you're on a roll so I think you should buy a lottery ticket this week! BTW, that ribbon is gorgeous. Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #105

Twiglet said...

And I am just chuckling because I nearly posted a pic of the lasagne I made from one of Di's recipes - she certainly is inspiring us to great heights in the kitchen! x Jo

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Julia and I saw a whole window of Christmas fabric in Winchester today...we ran away screaming - a few cards are ok though especially when they're so pretty!!

karen said...

Hi May! I am trying to get back on schedule with WOYWW (just barely made it) and have missed your blog!
Those cards are lovely! And you will be well ahead by Xmas time!
I love that reindeer and would hold on to that stamp! I love reindeer and that is a very classy one!
xoxo Karen #150

BJ said...

Thanks for stopping by and I sure wouldn't part with that reindeer either - super cards. BJ#6

Morti said...

ooohhhh - lovely cards, yummy ribbon and SCRUMMY food - I'm off to see if I can't find that recipe.....

Thanks for stopping by!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Yummy! I have no idea about the name of that food, but it looks so yummy. I just love shrimp. It took me a long time to learn to love shrimp being served some sort of deep fried rubber as a child (shudder).

Glad you like your ribbon and tape. I find that chevron ribbon kind of eye boggling in large doses.

I like that Stampin Up reindeer too. Even though I've made some recently I am still not emotionally prepared for Christmas cards.

butlersabroad said...

That is SUCH a wonderful stamp, I can see why you don't want to part with it. Lovely ribbon and lace too and I'm allergic to shellfish but I do like rice dishes, my husband makes a great curried rice dish with either veggies or chicken, yummy!

Hugs

Alexandra said...

I just love your things. And especially since they're holiday ones! Yeah!!! :)

Darnell J Knauss said...

Great job on the Christmas cards, May! Thanks for sharing your generous gift from PJ and that yummy looking recipe from Di! I'm really late getting around to snooping. Hope you have a wonderful week! Darnell #136

RosC said...

You look busy for Christmas which I hope will rub off on me. If I take all the inspiration from WOYWW folks, I might just be organised this year.
The ribbon and washi tape are a lovely light blue. The Nasi Goreng looks very appetising too.
All the best,
Ros. #125

Katie Bolinger said...

Christmas? in August? OMG I need to get started now if I am going to have cards for this year. Thanks for the reminder.

Nora Clemens said...

Oh my, you are getting ready for christmas, wow!. Times flies, and we will see it here soon. Great desk!!
