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.

I had a nice Saturday at The Doncaster Racecourse Crafting Live Show.

 
Sat outside on the stands to get a little fresh air, lovely.

 
Phill Martin doing his thing for Sentimentally Yours.

 
Plenty of nice samples to see.

 
Create and Craft were there too.
 
 
 And lots of Make and Takes.

 
Back at home.
 
My beautiful Vanda Orchid is flowering again.
 
 
How beautiful is that.

 
Swans in the park enjoying the duck weed.
 
 
Prep for some more pebble painting.

 
A rather different view of the pond.
Something has appeared which I did not plant and was quite a surprise when I noticed it the other day.

 
And a close-up.




And finally, Maisie.
By the time you see this she will have been for a hair cut but why she finds this spot a comfy place, I cannot imagine.
She pushed herself between the computer table and the chair!

So that's my week.
Hope you found a few things to make 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 # 476 - 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!

 
I went to the Doncaster Racecourse at the weekend and I just knew you would want to see what new goodies I bought so here they are.

 
Some Paper Artsy stamps and stencils. Aall & Create stencil and Visible Image too.
I liked the MDF stars though not quite sure what I'm going to use them for yet.
 
 
The Bombay store was there too and couldn't resist some nice pieces from them too.
 
Not really much else to show you as it's just been so hot.
 
 Did make a card which you might like for the Crafty Cardmakers.



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

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge Holidays/Vacations.


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

Back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers.

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to be cards as long as it meets the challenge.

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

June is hosting to day and our challenge is Holidays/Vacations.
 
I started with a collection of papers that I had coloured earlier with Distress Oxides.

 
Once I chose the paper for the background I stamped and heat embossed the background using Tim Holtz stamps and a text stamp by Stampendous.

 
The next stage was to die cut the Tim Holtz globe which I did using Craft Card.
 

I also cut another globe using one of the coloured papers which were trimmed to retain the landmass which was glued to the craft card globe.


 Following that I cut up the mats needed to complete the card using Plain colours that match with the Oxides.

 
I still have this left over from the A3 Masterboard so can easily make another card with this.
 
 
To complete the card I used one of Tim Holtz bird stamp and matching die and the small birds and sentiments are Tim Holtz too.





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.

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.

Fun in the park, re-hiding some Art Ninja rocks.

 
The cormorant was drying his wings after a bit of fishing.


 
The weather has been so warm here that it seemed like a good time to go to the coast before the children break up for the summer.
 
Humber bridge.

 
Nearly there now.
 
 
I love the East coast, the towns have still maintained their traditional character.

 Bridlington is well known for it's fishing, mostly Shellfish.

 
The baskets can be seen around the arbour.


 Too hot for dogs so Maisie and Stan are wearing their cooler coats.



 
 Sweet little train taking people along the front.



I so love these houses that overlook the sea they have great character.

 
Donkeys are still popular here on the East coast.

 
 Seagulls naturally.

 
 
Happen to notice this on one of the posts, interesting I'm sure you'll agree.

 
 And of course the Fairground.

 
This was actually Friday last week and it was very pleasant and not too busy but in a couple of weeks you will not be able to move for people when the children are on holiday.
Lets hope the weather stays nice for them.


Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
