Thanks For Your Support and WOYWW

I've missed playing along with WOYWW lately, but hopefully now that school is out, I can be a regular participant. 
 My friend gave me this empty Crayola marker container because she thought I might be able to use it for my crafts , and as soon as I saw it, I thought of my distress inks and paints. 

This is what it looks like from the top.  I'm definitely going to alter it, since I have lots of Tim's papers, and took his configuration class.

I also picked up this vintage stamp holder at a yard sale for a dollar, so I feel so organized now!  All my distress inks, paints and stains will be easy to find. 
The last thing I want to show you all is a card I just finished that is made with a fun Stampin Up stamp.  
I'm entering this in 3 challenges, CAS(E) this Sketch,  Retro Sketches and Casology Cue Card "Free".
Birds have so much freedom with their ability to fly.

 Thanks for stopping by, and definitely check out lots of other creative work spaces over at Julia's Stamping Ground Blog.

 I love reading all of your comments!

  8. I have one of those vintage stamp holders too, and I use it to keep my Fiskars scissors. I really like the color scheme in your card, especially the way the red mat made your artwork pop. Blessings!
