Masterboard Monday - Use it or Lose it.

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

I am here today to show you a card made with this Masterboard:


Yes I am back with my own stuff!

You may remember this from some time ago (here and here) but there's always that bit that's left over and you just can't throw it away so now's the time to use it up so here goes.


Snip a bit here and snip a bit there!


And before you know it half a card started!
I'm sure you've seen these recently, they are called Triple Point Cards or Crossover Point Card.
I made this using a 6" x 6" card blank.
There are lots of instructions for these on line if you're interested in making one though it's probably obvious from this photograph how it's done.


To complete this card I've added a die cut Poinsettia cut from the Masterboard, stamped sentiments, die cut snowflakes, some metallic cord and Stickles Glitter glue.


I attached some of the snowflakes inside the card so that they could be seen when the card is closed.

Hope you like this card as much as I enjoyed making it.
If you did you might want to pop back next Monday when I will be using this up too.
Same Altenew stamp but this time in red.
 

But that's for another day.

I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

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 the view over my fence at the bottom of the garden.


To the right you can just about see the building work that is taking place.


There's lots of noise and large equipment but lets go back a little.



Looking over the fence again.


Under those trees straight in front of us someone is watching!


Who could it be?


This was a lovely sunny day and someone was making the most of it.


They knew I was watching them but didn't seem that bothered and as yet the building work doesn't seem to have been a problem either. 
Interestingly the area was supposedly surveyed and we were told there was no wildlife living around this area obviously they were wrong! But we already knew this but what do they care!
I just hope that the loss of land for the foxes doesn't make them wonder into places where they are not welcome. Occasionally we saw them in the gardens but they were never a problem. 


I have to smile because they really don't seem bothered about what's  going on.


So it's time for another snooze!


Hope you enjoyed seeing our visitors, hopefully they'll be back again soon.


More gardening, this time over the garage. The Wisteria is lovely but goes mad every year so needs cutting back so him-indoors had to come out and climb the ladder.


Good collection of cuttings I'm sure you'll agree.


Stan came for a look to see what was going on. I cannot imagine what he's thinking!
These are fig leaves and they are massive but no figs I'm afraid.


Maisie came to check it all out too.


One more job before the winter, cleaning the pond filters, a bit messy but has to be done.


And a few dog funnies to finish.


This could be Maisie.


Thank goodness this is not Maisie and Stan though I'm sure they would if we let them.




Hope they made you smile.

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.

WOYWW - 645 - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

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

Hi Workdesk friends. 
We are here for another Wednesday at the Workdesk and here is:
"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!


I'm prepping for a card making day with a friend which will take place in a few weeks.


So I'm cutting out lots of snowflakes and other Christmas embellishments.


Everything will be organised in these tubs.
You'll notice that the exploding box seems to be filling up again too!


These are some of the dies I'm using and a piece of left-over gold card, so that's another way to use up some of your old stash.

And that's me done for today.
That's nice and quick just how we like it as there are lots more desks for you to visit.

 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,

Use it or Lose it.

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

I am here today to show you a couple of cards made with left-over Christmas papers, some of them were freebies from magazines but they all have to go to make space for new stuff so here goes:


I'm so in love with these Pinwheel Tower cards.


From above you can see how these cards stand and fold.


And lay nice and flat too so great for posting.


On these two I have also included a white space with a sentiment and room for your own message too which will be the back of the card.


The cat on the right hand card is by AALL and Create and I finished the cards with diecut sentiments, ribbon. snowflakes and baubles. 

Hope you like them too.

I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

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.


It's good to see the park being used by so many different people.


The runners are all back.


But we still find somewhere quiet to walk.


Building work continues.


The land at the back of us has been flattened but as you can see it is some distance away.


A close-up shows the land better.


If you thought my pile of garden cuttings were big last week...well what about this lot. We're about two thirds there now....well I hope so! It's very time consuming but we need to get it done before the weather changes.

Other than that things have been pretty quiet which is probably a good thing.


I have some interesting photographs to show you but this is just a teaser, more to follow next week when I've sorted them. 

And of course we can't leave without a few funnies:







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
