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.

And Christmas is on it's way. The garden always looks a bit dull at this time of the year so we need something to brighten it up but bet you can't guess from this photo what we've done?


Well everyone has to join in at Christmas so we've given the fish some fairy lights.





They look really lovely at night too.


Just managed to get some photographs before the light went.



The fish don't seem to mind.

Hope that made you smile a little. 
Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.

And if you have smiles to share just leave me your link and I'll pop over.

WOYWW # 497 - 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!



Just a few of my final Christmas cards to be sent off just in time! but nothing else happening at the moment....at least nothing I can show you yet.


Just remembered that Heather commented about gluing these fine die cuts without getting glue everywhere.
I have two methods:
1. I have a small bottle that I fill with Cosmic Shimmer Glue and to this I attach a small metal spout adaptor (at the moment I can't remember where I got these from). 
I then apply the glue in tiny dots, if the die cut is quite small then I hold the piece with tweezers. Once you get used to it you can do this fairly quickly.
2. Is to place a thin layer of glue on a craft mat and pull the die cut piece through it which will pick up the glue.

And before I go... I received this gorgeous card from Shaz and Doug aka Shazsilverwolf. 
How gorgeous is that, lucky me! cos it's a beauty. Thank you so much Shaz xXx


 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,

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 but it's been one of those weeks when I don't have much to show for what I've been doing but as you all enjoyed the dog photos last week I have a few more to show you.



This was Stan as a teenager, already much bigger than Maisie.



He had a habit of demolishing anything chewable.


Another cute puppy pic.



Maisie puts up with quite a lot, including having her beard inspected.


 I'm not sure what to say about these two photos. I'm sure he must have been comfy on the one above and the one below just makes him look like a little boy that can't keep his jacket tidy.


These two, I just like.



And finally one of Maisie as a puppy. She still likes to get on the stairs but not sure her head fits through there now.

I did take some photos in the garden too on Tuesday morning when we woke up to find the place covered in frost.




 Looks like winter might be on it's way.

 Hope that made you smile a little.

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.

Actually it's been like this for a few days.


I'm still making Christmas cards though nearly finished.


This is one I've used for inspiration which I made last year but never sent out.
I have made some more similar cards which you can see here:

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.

Masterboard Monday.

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

I am here today to show you a card made with these Masterboards or more left-overs actually.



When sorting through some Masterboards from last year I found these.


They were made using Distress Oxides, Paper Artsy stencils and Gel Medium.


This is the card that I'm using for inspiration also from last year but using a different background paper and a Tim Holtz sentiment stamp.


I used some sparkle card for the die cut image on this card and a black for the sentiment then added some blobs of Stickles Glitter glue in some of the circular sections.


 Green Mirri card for this one though photographing it is not so easy.


This is easier to see the sentiment which was layered with two different cards, one black and one glitter card.

Hope you enjoyed looking.

 I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Angela x
