What's on Your Workspace Weds and Thanksgiving cards

I guess Wednesday has now snuck up on us, huh? (Is snuck a word?) For WOYWW (run by Ms. Julia), I've got two hot messes to show you today. First, the kitchen table where until lunch I was frantically adding finishing touches to some hoarded cards that were going to my friend who is going to sell them for me at a craft event. It was fun just adding stuff to cards rather than work on them from scratch, for a change.

Second is the regular desk-away-from-desk (you know this isn't really my alotted craft area, right? I just kinda snuck in little by little and now I have squatter's rights... an argument that won't fly if I'm ever confronted, I'm afraid...) This desk has the start of a Thanksgiving card for aforementioned friend. She wanted a few considering the season. I used Lesley Langdon's card on the cover of that Take Ten magazine as a jumping off point. That DCWV Fall Mat Stack actually has squatter's rights in my stash because I've had it a very long time. Funny how it remains perfect one season a year. A couple of different papers, some Mandarin baker's twine, some bling, a Stampin' Up punch, and an Ippity sentiment (from a set called Sing a New Song) equals a quick and easy card.

You know that my handle is "Scrapcollectr" most everywhere, right? Well, that's because I have a hard time throwing the scraps out. In fact, I was about to throw out the trimmings leftover when my cards were made when I looked at that cute text paper in the trash and it just looked like an unborn card. So I fished it and another strip out, slapped it over another sheet, twined it, blinged it and here's the result.

Do you see what I'm up against? Lol.

Thanks for dropping in. If you feel inclined to share your work desk here, link in, by all means. Mr. Linky is back. He couldn't stay away. If you'd like share at Julia's blog, click HERE, too.

What a great squatters desk and you have a view right out the window mine are to high to see out. What lovely cards with rich autumn colours. Have a great day, Laura

My scraps don't speak to me like that! Your kitchen table looks round at the front and then becomes never ending, how do you do that?!!

I really like your second card -- the one made with the rescued scraps. (See, I'm obviously no help -- ha, ha)

For being # 1 this week, I'm awfully late visiting. I'm so sorry but, after a computer crash, I had to stop by and get a bit of inspiration from your lovely Thanksgiving cards. I saw one on the post above, too. Guess that'll teach me to be late!
