WOYWW Mar 7/12

This is (W)hat's  (O)n  (M)y (W)orkdesk  on this  (W)ednesday afternoon.  Want to see lots of other desks from all over the world?  Hop over to The Stamping Ground and you can join in with the weekly WOYWW fun too!



These are 2 of the ATC's I was working on last week when I took my WOYWW picture.









And these were on the top corner of my desk last week and I mentioned I had binned them into the recycling.  Well, I received a couple messages saying that perhaps I could still save them.  So I dug them out and I am so glad that I did!  I stamped the card some more and then stamped the Eiffel tower on some acetate and made an overlay.  So thank you to the people that suggested I take another look, it made me challenge myself a bit more and I really like these two ATCs!

Happy WOYWW everyone!

So glad you retrieved them from the trash can! All of these tags are gorgeous. I am partial to the brownish butterfly ones myself but I can see the beauty in the Eifel Tower ones.
Now, what happens to them...Do they get collected, traded, or used on card fronts or???

Hello Karen - thanks for popping by my blog yesterday ... it was a pleasure to have you visit! I'm SO glad you saved those ATC's ... they look stunning. Guess that's something we have both learned recently ... never give up on anything! Look forward to dropping in again to see more of your fab work! Love Debbie xXx

Beautiful ATCs and I can't believe the Paris ones almost went in the bin they are lovely.
I'm a bit slow getting round the desks this week, got to about 75 yesterday but then when I came on later at least another 95 links had appeared - do you think they are breeding when our backs are turned?
Thanks for calling in on me.

I am so glad we got to you in time to save those ATC's. The results are stunning. It just shows what you can do given a bit of time to think again. Well done. Thank you for your visit, and I will show you the results when I get the right things to make them work. Have a good week. xx Maggie #8

fairy thoughts said...

great desk, your atc are fab , see waste nothing, you just have to re- think.
thanks for your comments on my post . The chest was from simply homemade magazine, but it was a show special in the uk so I dont know if you will get it in Canada. The hearts are made from MDF which is great for altering, I have painted it with gesso first not sure what else, have to wait and see

Great save! Really they look fab with the acetate overlay, no wonder you're so pleased! ! Like the cards very much, I wonder if by now you've decided on the flowers, they re so pretty.

Firstly I love both lots of ATC. I rarely throw anything away, in case I can improve, learn or just hoard what I have made!

Polly Polkadot said...

2nd-ly. Don't worry about me being offended I very thick skinned, (too thick at times). I shall keep as many crafting tools as I can fit into my chaotic space whatever anyone says! I thought your comment about there being 2 of me was very funny, but I still haven't fixed the vaccum cleaner.

Those rescued ATCs are gorgeous, love Paris after my recent trip so I'm glad you saved them! Take care & enjoy this week's WOYWW, it's now Friday & I'm still snooping! Zo xx 60
