WOYWW 73

Happy Wednesday! Time for another installment of Whats On Your Workdesk- #73! I really like this game.... it is a great way to post without having to finish my project the night before...lol! I am getting closer to a finished card...see... all the cool parts laid out above. I have my images, my sentiments, my cardstock layers....everything right? Wrong... I decided that since I am incorporating the brown into this card (the image far left) that I have to put some kind of ribbon on this too. You'll see once I'm done.

I do have one finished project to show you...or three if you want to be technical about it.
Altered Halloween Candy Tins! They began their life as my beloved General Foods International Dark Mayan Chocolate Latte tins...yummo! I have a dozen or so of these empty babies lying around and I decided I would recycle them in a fun way. My coworkers kids love my cards and stuff so I made them candy tins for Halloween.



I will be filling them up with Baskin Robins ice cream flavored hard candies and Ghiardehlli chocolate squares today.
So what is on your workdesk? If you would like to show it off...pop by the Stamping Ground and enter your post into Mr Linky so we can all see what you are working on.

Oh the tins look lovely. Not sure I like the 'altered' coffee drink that was originaly in 'em, but I'd drink it just to get the tins!! Love all the colour going on at your desk - and it seems pretty well ordered to me.

Sweet Halloween cards and I love the tins and I don't have a one in the house right now. Do I need to run to the store? LOL Thanks for sharing. I didn't make it on the list, but am checking as many blogs as I can.

Wow, these are adorable tins. I love that coffee, too. How do I get on your Halloween treat list? Did you have any leftovers (GRIN)? Sorry I'm late visiting. I'm still moving slowly, and can't sit very long, but trying to start visiting people just in time for this week's Wed post. Happy very belated WOYWW (# 15).
