Card of the Week: Let's Go Play!

When I am busy creating my craft table is a complete disaster. I like to refer to it as "organized chaos" because even though it may look like random piles all over the place, I know where things are and can easily find them. And sometimes, like this week, the mess works to my advantage.

Here is this week's card:
Card Base: Recollections; Patterned Paper: Crate Paper; Cardstock: Bazzill; Circle Punch: Fiskars; House Die Cut: my craft stash; Sentiment: October Afternoon; Ink: Ranger Inks; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives, 3D Foam Squares

I first saw the die cut house lying on the table and thought it would look good on a card. The turquoise cardstock was nearby and matched perfectly. Then I found some scraps of paper from last week's color challenge, which also coordinated well with what I was working on. Add a little brown cardstock and a silly sentiment, and I was done.

So you see, from the piles of supplies lying around on my craft table I was able to make something cute...which proves that creativity can arise from a mess and that the chaos that usually surrounds and covers my craft table is organized enough for me to work with.

What have you made using the scraps and bits you have lying around on your craft table?
