What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday # 141 Plus a Challenge Card


Whats On Your WorkDesk Wednesday # 141

Edited - Sorry WOYWW visitors I have been at #91 all day just finished going round leaving comments on desks saying i am #91 to pop back and find I am now at #89 How does that happen??? Sorry if i have confused you.

Good morning All, and welcome to my desk today, every Wednesday Julia From The Stamping Ground hosts the biggest blog hop ever! (Probably!!) Go check it out over HERE. I am sorry I didn’t even make it around half the desks last week and was still ‘snooping’ on Saturday. I will try harder this week. Thank You all so much for the leaving lovely comments last week.

So onto my desk:

Not much of interest really – All the usual essential tools, tissues and babywipes and Laptop!!!! I have been trying to make a small dent in my scrap card box, so have been making cards with no backing papers, no cute pictures, no embellishments, just scrap card and a little Papermania Stamp, (I know its a tough one!!!).

And I haven’t even got any new storage idea’s to share this week either. So a quick WOYWW and a quick peek of the finished card.

Hope you all have a great week, Take Care

Lou

  1. great looking card and Toby is cute. A friend has turtles that she keeps outside all the time. It is warmer here so she can do that! I think they hibernate when it is cold. Hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing. Don't forget my blog candy is still up for grabs so drop by and leave a comment and make sure you are a follower. Vickie #64

  11. Lou, that's a great card, and it just goes to show what you can create with minimal materials. Very striking and stylish. Thanks for introducing us to Toby! He is VERY handsome!! Thanks for stopping by my work desk this week. The Scotch glue can be obtained very reasonably on the 3M website, where you can also get really good prices on ATG glue guns. Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #35

  33. Great cards and Toby just cracked me up. I have an LOL cats calendar and yesterday it had a photo of a turtle with a cat looking at it and the caption was "Friggin Mice, now they have tanks!"

  34. Thanks for sharing your desk :)

  35. That is certainly a very striking card, and a good one for spreading happiness. Loved your pet pictures. I am considering a new mounting for my rolls of tap, which would get rid of the desk stand and get them onto the wall right in front of me, but I have not mentioned that to DH yet. I will give him time to play with some of his toys first. Thank you for your valued opinion on my card. Watch this space. xx Maggie #98

  37. Oh My!! Toby is a real Looker!! What a grea pet, wont jump up on you... no barking... don't have to chase after him.. not to mention he's Good Looking too.

  38. Your desk looks busy but organised which I suppose is the best way to be!
    The card is lovely - great idea to use up your scraps - that's the sort of scraps I have loads of too, rather than scraps of nice design paper!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  39. Lovely bright card and well done for using up the scraps. Toby is cute, and you'll have to spill the beans about the shoes next week! Regarding the numbers, occasionally Julia has to do some tidying up of bad links or peeps who are doing nothing but advertising themselves and not joining in with the spirit of WOYWW. Thanks for the sock love!

    Hugs

  41. Toby is quite the sweetie! I like the idea that you are using up stash. I would find it very challenging to make cards wish no backing papers, no cute pictures, and no embellishments. My brain my explode! Thanks for the referral to Wast Not Wednesdays. I will check it out.

  44. Great desk and do I see a colour chart? I'm making one of my Inktense Pencils to see which colour I need. Making a card without cute stamps and dessin paper is a difficult job, but you've made it. Well done! Thanks for visiting me. Bye, Franka

  50. Well done for diving into your scraps, I'm trying to use up all my old stickers and other embellishments - usually by altering them first.

  51. Its so great when you use up older / scrap stash isn't it?! I am making a big effort to use up lots of stuff otherwise there is no excuse to buy any more and I spend too much time looking for the right thing and organising it all and none actually crafting! Have you seen the challenge over at SJ Crafts?

  52. Good way to use up the stash. Great masculine card!
