Friday Fun Day.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.

On Saturday I went to another Craft Show at The Doncaster Racecourse!
Now I believed that there really wasn't much that I needed but it would be nice to just have a wonder round, see what was new that sort of thing .... well I just had to buy one or two things so naturally this was a fun day for me Lol!
And here are the things I came home with.

 
I wont bore you with lots of photos as most of you saw close-up on Wednesday here.

Create and Craft were there doing their thing.

 
And the show was quite busy too.

 
Hels was there doing a class make and take.

 
 
Spent some time in the café talking to some lovely ladies which was nice.
 
I've also been in the park walking dogs.
The cygnets are getting bigger than ever and starting to moult and are gradually getting their white feathers.
 
 
Look how big they are! Have they grown or what!!!


Photographed these little mushroom/toadstools.
Unusual colour.
 
And finally I had to show you this which I am sure will make you smile.
Can you see what's going on here?
 
 

This is Stanley who was watching me feed the fish only now he has decided he also likes fish food and has worked out how to flip the lid off!
 
 This is not for dogs and I have told him this but he doesn't seem to listen!
 
 Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
 
If you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.

WOYWW #424 What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends. 
Here we are for another Wednesday at the Workdesk. 
I am here again to show you:

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
 
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.


So here is my desk for today!
But not exactly as these were the things I brought back from Doncaster Craft Show but thought you might like to see them before I put them away.



 
Stencils.


 
Dies.

 
Stamps.
 
So this is actually how it is today.
 
 
A new gadget from The Craft Barn should be fun!
And some cards I am working on.
Tim Holtz Thinlits dies just on the left which I am about to use and the Distress Oxides on the right there.

 
This is something I've been playing with which is resting in the 'Exploding Box', new stamps by JOFY (Paper Artsy) and I've been colouring them with some US Art Quest interference Colors which are Mica Watercolour paints though it's not clear from this photograph.

 
So that's me done for today.

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - Lots of layers.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.


   Chanya is hosting today and our challenge is Lots of Layers.

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule! 

Hope you will join in.
And here is my project for the challenge:


My layers have been created using stencils and stamps.

This gives some idea of how I built the layers for this card.
Carabelle stencils, stamp and Distress black ink.

 
Followed by Carabelle stencil and Distress Oxide inks.
Then Kaisercraft stamps.


 
And there you have it!

 
I finished it with some pearl gems.


I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with too.
 Happy crafty card making.

Friday Fun Day with Smiles.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.

This is one of the big trees in the park, very peaceful when we walked through there on Thursday but Saturday!

 
People and lots of them!
 
 
Saturday saw our lovely park full of visitors enjoying the Annual Summer Fair.
The entrance became a car park.
 

 
And everywhere was full of stalls and entertainment.



 
Such a sweet little train.


 
Stanley, probably wondering what's going on!


 
And Sunday it's all gone!
 



 
Apart from the numbers.


 
 
This is not a sight you see often. It just happened to be sitting right on the top of a water leak so had to be removed but it's back in it's rightful place now.
 
 
Can you see these!

 
Look closely because they are baby grapes growing in my garden!

 
We have had them before but not as many so we shall have to wait and see how they get on.



Before I forget, the artist from last week:

 
It's Richard Box what a talented artist, Annie (A Stitch In Time) and Shoshi got it right though I'm not surprised.
See that machine, they are the type I used to have when I was teaching, they just go on for ever, love them!
If you're interested I've put a link here so you can see his work. Take note of the sewing machine, he's obviously had it for sometime!

Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
 And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.

Hi Workdesk friends.

"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
 
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.


So here is my desk for today!


Oxide samples waiting to be made into cards.


Tim Holtz stencils, not sure yet which I will use.
The yellow things if you've not seen them before are painters pyramids and are a god send when you need to elevate your work above desk level. Towards the back are some very small square card blanks.

 
A card I made earlier which can be seen here.
And in the box are some Craftwork card Candi which I used on this card.

 
The black card bottom right is a die cut. Trying out a new die that I received this week.
 
Not on the desk but got these this week too.
Look forward to playing with those.
 
 
 
So that's me done for today.

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
