WOYWW? and a Peanuts card!

Here we go again...time to join the crafters from across the ocean for another What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. I actually made the quick card below and then did a quick clean up so I can show you a couple of fun garage sale finds for 25 cents each!!! What a deal...Can you see the neat baby stamp, some made up quilt like little yo yo fabric type embellishments, and some salt shakers I am thinking of putting my glitter in. I want to find some older type shakers in different heights and shapes, and older for a pretty look. I love old, "antiquey" things.

Speaking of old things, I finally got my replacement copic holder, but was sad to not have my fun old pop crate, so I moved it right next to me and am still up in the air as what to put in it. Right now I have some SU punches, but would certainly love your suggestions!

my old pop crate needs a new purpose....and my fun garage sale items

A quick card I made tonight for my sweetie. My new Peanuts stamp...this stamp just looks like me with my hands on my hips when my sweetie watches wayyyy to much TV with my dog!You know how it feels like you are talking to wall sometimes??????

I used the sketch from Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge #20 this week and kept it very simple ...ready for bed!

Card details:
-------------------------
Stamps: Watching TV FR1050, sentiment handwritten
Cardstock:Basic Grey--  max and whiskers  DP along with a SU card base
Ink: Memento Black and Copics
Misc: Label 8 nestie, circle punches from SU, misc dog bone brad

Pin It!

Your copic holder was the FIRST thing I saw on your desk. Glad to see you finally got the replacement. You are up late. Of course, I had to stop by and see your fun garage sale finds. Happy WOYWW.

Must say, the Copic holder is impressive!! Love the idea of your glitters and shinies being in those old shakers - they'llbe practical and gorgeous..perfect. As for the crate - I dunno....do you collect old bottles?!!!

My goal today is to have my work space look at least that neat by the time I'm finished with my reorganization! I have so much work to do....it may take two days!! Cute card and great little finds. Reminds me that there is a little church thrift shop that I need to go back and explore. Found lots of cool stuff, but not enough time to take a good look!!

Chrissie said...

Love that Copic holder and your new goodies too. What a fabulous workspace.

Good grief, you are so organised. Tee Hee. I love Charlie Brown, sorry I could not resist it. Hope you are well, hugs, Teresa xxx

Sunshine Girl said...

Great card i love peanut things. Great desk too and love the idea of glitter in those jars. With the old storage piece can you fit distress inks in them? I use an old tea gift set box to store mine in.

Glen said...

Love the snoop Sue. Lots of luvverly things to see. Love the Peanuts card too. TFS. ~Glen~

Darcy said...

ooo fabby new pen storage, love that card, Snoopy is one of my all time faves.

As for the crate, why dont you just decorate it and hang it on the wall, paper inside the cubes and stand little 3d embellies inside or little glass jars...Google 'printers trays' and see how they have been decorated. I am sure you could do your crate the same way.

Linda Elbourne said...

Fabulous finds and that card is adorable!

Dawn said...

Love the botttle holder I would paint in and make it shabby chic! and then you can decide what to put in it If you would like to know how to paint if just ask. Love the new copic holder It would make me buy more though, as I would have to fill it! ha ha

Love Dawn xx

Our Little Inspirations said...

Ok Sue, now you're just showing off with a photo of such a CLEAN working area! Mine should look this good when I clean! LOL Seriously, I love the old salt shakers for glitter and your collection of Copics. The card is adorable too!

The Crafty Goat Girl said...

Hi Sue, love love love your little Peanuts card, I have always loved them since I was a girly! Great tidy area to work in, thanks for sharing! hugs Heidi xx

butlersabroad said...

The pop box has way more personality than the copic holder, that's just utilitarian and practical. Not sure what you could use it for though as from memory, you've got loads more punches than would actually fit in it! Can you hang it on the wall and fill it with little art treasures?

Hugs
Brenda

Allison said...

Love your card! That is so funny. I do the same thing. I would probably put my ink pads in that unit or just a bunch of wood stamps. Love your vintage findings.

Spyder said...

Love your copic container, it just glares at me!! I want one!! and of course your crate,now that's something I might have out in the garage somewhere, I'm sure someone had one last week, and I went looking but couldn't find it

Annika said...

Lovin' the peanuts card, incredibly cute image and fab design.
So jealous of your garage sale finds!!!!
You could keep pre-stamped images in that crate, sortd by manifacturer/theme.
Hugs

What fun! I recently saw that Little Birdie Secrets had filled antique salt shakers with glitter and decided that I would CASE that idea ... now I'll just CASE it from you, LOLOL, 'cuz I know you better!

Larissa said...

scrappyjan said...

Hello Sue, Very cute card and your work desk is so clean!! I love the old fun things that you can find at garage sales also. Your finds look like tons of fun..
I like the way you have your markers. I have mine in a bucket and would love to find something else for them but if I did then I wouldn't be able to just pick them up and go with them if I want to.
LOL

hugs, Janiel
