Here's What's On My Workdesk: Wednesday 252

I am still working diligently on keeping my work area uncluttered by cleaning as I go.  It is a day-by-day challenge because of time restrictions.  I also have to keep things put away out of necessity because our cat Pandora is a little thief who enjoys stealing things at night and dropping them off somewhere downstairs.  She also has the annoying habit of chewing on tape or anything with a sticky/gum-like film.  Yellow mailers are her absolute favorite. 
ATC Challenge #3-Used Postage Stamp
 For this challenge I had to create an ATC using a used postage stamp then match the theme of the card of to the subject of the stamp.  I wanted something colorful and spring-like.  This lavender and yellow bee stamp was perfect.
Letter B rolodex
 Have you heard of an altered rolodex  (Flickr)?    Such a fun project to take on and because the cards are so small, they are quick to create.  Great project to work on when you are short on time or you have lost touch with your creativity.  I started mine last summer and like many of my projects, I ran out of steam and it has been sitting collecting dust.  This week I stumbled upon an altered rolodex card series swap.  We were to create an altered rolodex card for our partner featuring something that starts with the letter B.  Coincidently, I had the bumble bee quote printed for the ATC swap so I went with that for my “B” theme. 
Easter ATC's

Spring Themed ATC's
This week I am working on a travel junk journal for myself.  Will post photos next time.

Sharing in the fun at peeking in on other creator’s work desks at What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

  17. Diane, thanks for your visit, yes I love those cards too, the swirly one and the poppy one, but they still look unfinished. When I get home I might have new ideas.
    What do you mean you are not a card maker? Your ATC's are gorgeous, I love the Easter card especially, the lace down the side is lovely.
    Bless you
