Workdesk Wednesday #349

Another Sunday showing of my desk so you can see it in action. Most of the action seems like piled up stuff but I assure you it is not.  Okay, maybe it is.  All those stamps lurking under the overhang are collage style stamps that I adore but never use. It is time that they find themselves a new home where they will get inky. Front and center has bits and parts for an ATC exchange I joined. I am just gathering supplies for the ATCs so I can work on them at a crafty gathering this evening.
The left desk has a stack of made cards and cards in progress, including several birthday cards I made recently. Some of the in progress cards have been there for weeks. I need to either finish them up or toss in the towel.
The right side of the desk has my newest Stampin' Up stamps to play with and a lovely gift from a friend (a Wink of Stella pen!).
And here's a card that has been sitting in the pending folder since fall. This was made for one of those challenges. The challenge item was the pumpkin seed. I didn't get very creative with mine as you see here but some folks really went to town with them. That's all I got for you!
The Fine Print: I think that frilly pumpkin is by Cottage Cutz but I could be making that up, greeting by Taylored Expressions and stitched leaves by Lawn Fawn.

I could offer my services to these craft companies you know...I'm sure I could make up stupider names than what they already offer. Wink of Stella?? Hah. What about Defenestration of Enemy (a murky black with a hint of red...look up defenestration, you'll see why), Flatulence of Felicity, Kick le Bucket.
Do you think they'd offer me the job?!

Hugs, LLJ 13 xx (who humbly apologises for this random comment...)

Jan may just have something there hee hee ... the pumpkin IS cool :)

I keep saying I am going to purge stamps but, so far its not happening here...

Sandy Leigh said...

I wish I could get in gear to make some ATCs...I'm so bad about it. But I agree, that way more action happens on my craft table over the weekend! I'm last on the list today, after you! Sandy Leigh #54

Even with lots going on, your desk is still much tidier than mine! - I am too ashamed to show the right and left sides as they are so cluttered and messy. Enjoy your new glittery pen - I just can't resist putting a little bit of sparkle on virtually every card I make these days - love it!!

So, just so you know, I'm too busy pouting a little that you didn't invite me to the crafty gathering to tell you how cute that card is.

Well I like the pumpkin card. And I so understand about the collage stamps; one thing for sure, you'll have no trouble selling them! I hope you make many ATCs and do not end up stressing over the exchange. Does it soun d like experience talking! More to the point though, have a lot of fun at your crafty gathering. And don't worry, I'll show Jan my Wink of Stella,and then she'll understand. OOh err missus!!

I started okay this morning but got tied up with a difficult project so only just getting round to starting my visits. Gorgeous card Judy. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 26

Shoshi said...

Nice busy desk, Judy, and I did smile at LLJ's comment! Yes, the names can get a bit ridiculous at times!! Thanks for your visit and your nice comment. I've actually done very little today as I'm too tired! I did play a bit this evening - I brought some painting stuff downstairs and started on the background for a new art journal page which will feature some cats.

Happy WOYWW,

Your desk is way tidier than mine Judy, but like mine yours looks like a very busy place. I like your card with the contrasting colours

Had a chuckle at your saying either finish or throw in the towel,we are procrastinating sometimes yet really rip through it other times. If only one knew why ;)
Love the pumpkin card too...
Happy WOYWW, thanks for popping over!

Great card - I need more wink pens :) Thanks for the visit yesterday - sorry I am so late getting round this week. Soojay xx

Greta said...

That frilly pumpkin is gorgeous! I've gotta get rid of some of my stamps I'll never use, but can't work up the motivation to spend time organizing as I'd rather just make cards--haha!

butterfly said...

Ooh look - nice busy desk... what, no interference from the cats?

Just love that pumpkin - what a great die, and the card is really cool with the colour contrast of the background.
