WOYWW #220

Another one bites the dust!!! Wednesday that is - time to trek around the globe visiting crafters...

I am lucky enough to stick in peoples minds when they are clearing out - a friend handed me these sheets of cardboard - they may not be card bases but they will certainly take to embossing and die cutting... The red & yellow striped cards were Work Christmas party invites from 2009 which I found in one of my garage crates - some deconstruction is in the cards [pun intended] I love it so much I also used in in my T for Tuesday post LOL...

The pad of papers is what is left of my freebie with craft magazine stash... slowly using it up!!

That's about it for this week - I have been busy making cards but they are all in previous posts - if you would like to know what WOYWW is all about then pop over to Stamping Ground where our hostess Julia Dunnit takes very good care of us all!!

Welcome to Gloria Shirr - my newest follower...

Thanks for stopping by... Mxx

  8. My sil always thinks of me when she's purging LOL. She is a dental assistant and I get the most useful storage containers from her. Just need to figure out for what LOL Creative Blessings~ Kelly #131

  9. I always say without the help of my friends and their "trash," I would never have any collage fodder. Good for you and your friends. Happy slightly belated WOYWW from #10.

  10. Nothing truer than the trash and treasure thing huh...

  11. I cannot get over the fact that your desk is so "clean".
    Glad you are putting to use someone else's trash but what is that I espy at the top - a canvas?

  12. Being in the 'recycling' market made me a target when one of my daughters gave up card making. Wonderful! I thought........ Had to organise it and give most of it away to Leigh at 'The Charity Crafter. I don't think she expected a car boot full but managed to find all sorts of Charities that were glad of it..... recycling is wonderful.
    I am slowly changing my storage from mushroom baskets (courtesy local Chinese Takeaway) to wonderful lidded boxes, courtesy of a local surgery!!!
    Keep up the good work!!
