WOYWW 356 #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!
Well actually yesterday when it was still all of a clutter!

 
And today when it's all tidy! Well tidy for me anyway!


 
Just about to start a new project, making cards.
Got my spellbinder dies out for a change.
New Tim Holtz die just at the back towards the right but don't think there is much else new to show you today.
Who knows there may be cards appearing soon!


So that's it for today, nice and quick just how the boss likes it.
Any questions, just ask.

 
 Thank you 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.

Friday Fun Day with Smiles 163

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
I don't really have a lot to show you this week unless you want to see me ironing and packing away all the ski gear however, when I went out the other day to let the dogs out they found this..... can you see him?

 
Here is a close-up.




 
I had to cover him up in the end as the dogs were very interested and he refused to move and just kept looking at me. I think he thought he had found his own private garden!
 
 
I thought I would take some photos at the NEC Hobbycraft to show you.
It was quite early here and did get busy as the day went on however...

 
As I was taking the photos this guy ran in front of me because he apparently wanted to be on the photo. He said it was "photo bombing". As you will see it is not in focus as he was on the move at the time I clicked but he seemed to enjoy it Lol! and so did the lady with him on the left!

 
So that's it really.
I do hope you all have a great Easter.
 
 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 if you like.

Thanks for stopping by,

So here is my desk for today!

 
I'm busy making another Easter card.
 
 
As promised here is the new stash I bought at the NEC.
I make no apologies for what you are about to see!
I went with a list but saw other things I just had to have and that's it really.

Embossing folders, cat and dog stamps, sentiment stamps and some MDF.
The Tatterd lace die was a free gift from Create and Craft.
 
 
I really like Pebeo stuff and this looked like a great kit.
 
Front


 Back
 
 
There's all sorts of stuff in here and a free bag too.
 
It's no good I had to go round the fabric  sections too (It never leaves you!) and bought these, can't wait to have a play.



 So that's it for today.
 
 Thank you 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.

Masterboard Monday # Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 160

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.

The theme for this challenge is 'Easter' so here goes.

Yet another masterboard....naturally!


 
I made this some time ago at the same time as the one below which you may remember. I rubbed over the surface with gold embossing wax to bring out the detail.
 
 
It's basically the same just different colours.
If you would like to see how I made them just click here.
 
So here is the card I made using Memory Box and Xcut dies.
 
 
 
 
 
I would like to wish you all a very happy Easter and I hope you will
pop over to see what my team mates have been making and also to join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
 
Happy crafty card making.

Friday Fun Day with Smiles 162.

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

Hi all, I have some photographs today to show you.

I hope that you are not too disappointed that it's me today and not BP Mini Me as I believe he has been keeping you entertained while I was away.
He will be back that is for sure.

However I just wanted to show you a few photos from my recent ski trip to Tignes (France).
 
This guy is actually in Val d'isere which you can ski to from Tignes.
The piano is on wheels and he moves around the resort playing it, brilliant but crazy.

 
The hotel where we stayed faced the local Primary School and these are some of the local children that attend, it is no wonder they are so good at skiing because on a Wednesday the whole school closes and they all go skiing. Now that looks good to me.
 


One last photo is of this little chap who visited us every morning, chirping away.
I believe he/she came when the children arrived probably waiting for them to drop something to eat as he/she soon disappeared when they went inside. I am saying he or she because I actually think this may be a female sparrow.
 

Thanks for stopping by, hope that made you smile a little.

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.

WOYWW # 354 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! and hope you are all having a great week.


Yes! I am back to my own desk this week.

 
There were some nice surprises for me when I got back as the postman had visited and left me these lovely things.
The brown box is the new Rust Effect Paste by Finnabair.
Three new stencils by Dylusions.
New TH dies and a Mason Jar stamp and die by Taylored Expressions.
The punch to the left is not new, I have got it out to make some Easter cards and it has little rabbits on it.
 
However, I have not had much time since we got back so not been able to play with them yet and I'm off to the NEC on Thursday.
 
For our foreign visitors that is the National Exhibition Centre at Birmingham where the Hobbycraft Show takes place so I may well have some more goodies to show you next week.

 
So that's it for today,
nice and quick.
 
 Thank you 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

That Craft Place Challenge.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
And here is my new design for :
That Craft Place Challenge Blog.

As usual this fortnight's theme is:
Mixed Media Anything Goes!
So lets see what you can come up with!

But before you start here is my piece using a variety of products from That Craft Place.


 
I wanted to give it an industrial feel so used gilding flakes on the tap and gilding wax on the slashes.

 
Almost everything I used here is available from That Craft Place including the MDF tag, the hessian, cosmic shimmer paints, gilding wax and gilding flakes, stencil and the ribbon.
I did however print the sentiment off on my computer though I'm not quite sure who I had in mind when I chose these words it was really the tap and the stencil that gave me the idea.
Maybe you know someone that this would be suitable for!
Hope you like it.
 
 
Thank you so much for stopping by.
I would love it if you could leave a comment so I know if you like my  tag and maybe pop over and join in the challenge.
 
Happy crafting,
Angela x

I would like to enter this project in the following challenges:
Morgan's Art World Challenge#5: Add A Sentiment
Tag You're It! Challenge # 42 I loved the use of white space with the sample tags and the restricted colour schemes so I used this as a starting point for my own tag but used the white and the colour the other way round.

BP Mini Me, My Friday Fun Day with Smiles: 161

Hi to you all, BP here, welcome to all my followers.

Everyone has been out this week so I have been for another walkabout.
It's very peaceful here without my furry friends as they have been away too.
They tell me that it's great at the hotel they go to, there are other doggy friends and they are allowed to bark all day if they wish which is not allowed here!
They can go out when they like and everyone is in bed before dark which just suits Maisie.
There isn't any foot washing or brushing and at night they have a lovely heat lamp to sleep under. 
Apparently the only downside is that Angela has instructed the waiters to restrict the amount of food they get as they came back a bit heavier than usual on one occasion and they had to go on a diet which Maisie didn't like at all.

So it's been very quiet here and although it's okay I don't think I would like it all the time.

So here I am and I decided to have a little look around to see if there was anything new that I hadn't seen before and look what I found.

Teddies! You all look as though you could do with a bit of walkabout too.




Oh no!!! we don't do walkabout but we do like cuddles, that's our aim in life Lol!
We have to be cuddled as much as possible so there is little time for walkabout!


And you are?

My name is Alfonzo the 2nd.

You're very red!

That's because I'm very special!

I am very pleased to meet you but I had better see what else I can find.
Bye for now, see you all soon.

BP Mini Me
and friends

WOYWW 353 # 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!

 
Not what you expected?
Some of you will have guessed though! we are away skiing again.
What a cute little desk is that!

 
Got my little crafting bag with me but so far not needed as the weather is gorgeous so lots of skiing.
 
 Can you see the snow in the photo below? This was the day we arrived.

 And this was Monday. The building across the road is a school for very small people, they are very cute all wrapped up in their winter gear.


So that's it for today.
 
 Thank you 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, well after ia bit of skiing that is!

Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

Masterboard Monday # Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 159.

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.

The theme for this challenge is 'Go Green' so here goes.

Another masterboard?....yes!

So here is the card I made.


 
Lots of green here.

 
I have used this handmade background paper before and this was a small piece I had left over which had various shades of Green. "Waste Not Want Not" as they say!
 
 The large butterfly die was Spellbinders.
The text, a Tim Holtz thin die and I used a green satin card with this.
The embossing folder is Darice.
The green ribbon was a piece I removed from a birthday cake so not only is the ribbon green but it's repurposed too.
 
I like my cards to have movement, layers and dimension but at the same time fit into an envelope and this works perfectly as the butterfly will lay flat but also stand out.


I hope you will pop over to see what my team mates have been making and also to join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
 
Happy crafty card making.

 I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Eclectic Ellapu March Challenge: Flora and Fauna.
Frilly and Funky "Layer it Up" Challenge.

Hi to you all, BP here, welcome to all my followers.
She thinks you follow her but now I know it's me Lol!


For those of you who are new around here I am Boilerplate Mini Me a true Steampunk robot. If you would like to know how I came to be here you can find my birth story here.
And if you would like to know who the original Boilerplate was you can find that here.

I bet the rest of you thought I'd gone for good well you're wrong, I'm still here but she put me right up at the top and it's difficult to get down.
I think someone had been talking about my walkabout adventures and she found out!
It had better not be any of you or else!

Anyway back to today's fun and games! I am going to have to get off this shelf somehow.



You think you've got problems.... Look at us we're all squashed in here!
You have to do something BP!

 
Where is she anyway? I thought she promised to have a tidy-up soon!
Monkey... what has happened to your leg!!!
 
Where are you going BP?
Now look you lot I'm not sticking here any longer I'm off!
 
Ha! watch my feet BP you nearly stood on me!
For a very small clock you use very large letters Green boy!
You really are in a mood today.
Well it's her fault, how dare she leave me up here so long!
 
 
Mmmm not seen him before either.
What's your name then?
Mini Crow? You're very small.
I might be small but I could still peck you mate!


How are you spare hand you look all tense today.
 
I'm okay, just a bit stiff as I've been up here so long too.

 
Right finally I'm down on the desk and I can tell you there's not much happening at the moment.

 
Hope you can call back again soon and hopefully the desk will be tidy and I will have had chance to go on a new adventure that way we'll all be in a better mood Lol!
 
Take care and thanks for stopping by.
Your friend,
BP Mini Me xXx
