WOYWW 456 - 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 have loads of wool rovings from when I used to do wet felting and thought it would be nice to do some needle felting so to get me started I've bought these two kits which have really good instructions and all the stuff you need to make the hares so here goes! I will obviously let you see how I go on with these.
 

 
  • You may also notice the leaflet relating to Gelatos as I've been using those this week.
  • Some old wooden block stamps on the left. I really need to make more use of some of the older stash.
  • Just below those is a packet of Paper clay with a butterfly mould on top which I have also used this week.
  •  Gesso bottle towards the back which is always in use.
In case you didn't get chance to see it here is my latest card offering:

We've just started the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers if you're interested.
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 'Floral Delight'

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.


  Mary is hosting today and our challenge is  'Floral Delight' .


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:

These are left over flowers from an earlier card so if it looks vaguely familiar you're right but slightly different.
The earlier cards can be seen here and here.

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 made me smile lots.
I wonder if you know what it is?
It's only the second time I have seen one of these in the UK though we saw lots of them in Egypt.


I'm sorry the photographs are a bit bright but for once it was sunny on the day I took them.

 
This next photograph however is an animal you will definitely know.
It's the lazy dog variety!
They are seen all over the place but at our house they seem to sleep quite a lot!



 And they love to be in the sun too.




 Spring must be on it's way as I took these photographs of the Blue Tits.



 They are obviously house hunting!


 And I will leave you with another photograph of Maisie in her favourite spot at the top of the stairs.
That's part of my bottle collection just behind her and some very old fabric stamping blocks.


 Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
I'm off now to see what everyone else have been up to.
 
 And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.

WOYWW 455 - 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!


 
Working on a door hanger this week.
A few new stamps which I bought when I went to Crafter's Companion shop (not the mould).


 New stash from The Craft Barn too.
The stamp is an older one but they had it on offer and I rather like it. They still have their sales on the go.

 
The little butterfly die looks like it will be useful. I cut out lots of the images to go on the door hanger.
And ended up with this left-over sheet which would make a good embossing folder or stencil so we'll see.
 
 
I also have a similar sheet from cutting out the insects too.


And a better view of one of my batty friends. I know some of you aren't keen on bats but these two have quite cute faces and are very furry.

 
And if you didn't get to see it this is the finished card that was on my desk last week.
 


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,

Masterboard Monday.

 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 you've seen it before! here.
It's made with Paper Artsy stencils designed by Kim Dellow and  have already used it on another card.
This is an A3 sheet which goes a long way so there's always a bit left over for that card you forgot to make Lol!

This time I've taken the bottom right which is mostly shades of green and yellow to make this card.

  • Take a white card blank, white and dark green card to layer and cut to size using a Sue Wilson die.
  • Then cut the chosen section of Masterboard into three pieces and layer with more card.
  • Before mounting onto the other layers I attached a small piece of yellow ribbon to enhance the colours.

So here we are...  what next?
 
It's usually at this stage that I tend to leave them for a while. I realise this is a very busy background and you might just want to put a sentiment on it but don't worry I took it a bit further!
 
Stamped and fussy cut some flowers using the Kim Dellow stamp set EK Do6.
I felt it need something with a little less detail so I used craft card and stamped it first with the same sentiment stamp that I used on the Masterboard.
Finished them with some die cut centres from the Masterboard and Sparkle Glitter glue.
 
 
 The Sentiment is a Sizzix Die.
I die cut this in black and yellow and then mounted them together.


I would love to hear your comments and of course I will be able to visit you back once I know where you are.
 
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.

I wasn't sure I would have much to show you this week but I had a nice surprise when we took my mum out this week to a garden centre.
Look what we found!
 
This is enough to make anyone smile though probably not my beloved!
It's a big shop! with lots of interesting things.
So of course I had to go in.

 
Took a few photos of some nice card samples.
 
 


 
Very nice!
 
Bought one or two things, Naturally!
 
More smiles!
 
Meant to show you these last week, Birthday pressy.
Those flowers are so pretty.
 
The lady to the right is one of my Powertex pieces.


And finally Stanley is here to thank you for visiting.
He is actually looking much tidier now than he does here as he has had a hair cut.
I think he is pretending not to know he's having his photo taken or maybe he's seen a squirrel in the garden!


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 454 - 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'm working on a Paper Mache house at the moment so I have some acrylics out which I plan to use with this and some Gesso and 3D gel.
I wonder if you like my two batty friends hanging at the top left, I think they are super cute but probably not to everyone's taste.


On the left are a few things waiting for me to do something with them. A half made card, some Tim Holtz glaze, stencils, ribbon, all sorts really that need sorting.


These are new and quite cute if you like bugs!

 
 The little brown tubs are still here and seem to have gained a few extra bits.

 
So that's me done for today and I hope you are all having a lovely Valentine's Day.
If you didn't get chance to see it earlier in the week here is a Valentine's card I made.
Hope you like it.
 
 

 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

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.

Been in the park this week and they've been trying to tidy up some areas where the coping stones had dropped into the lake.

 
One to dig and two to watch Lol!

 
That's all done now.
 


 
The swan babies are still here for the time being.
 
 


And Maisie is here today wearing a very fashionable red fleecy jacket though she doesn't look very impressed.


 
And I'm wearing this year's most fashionable accessory, the bobble slippers Lol!
Cute or what!
Sorry about that Lol!


 
 Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.

WOYWW 453 - 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'm working with some left over Masterboards again!

 
But just had to show you how it looked the other day.
Now what do you suppose was in this big envelope!
If you look carefully on the desk there may be a clue.

 
Yes it's new Distress Oxides!
Can't wait to start playing with these.
 
 
I also bought some new brush Pens. These should have been £24.99 at Smiths but they had them at half price so couldn't resist them and I might say they are very juicy.


 My little address book and a stencil, this is not new by the way!

 
A  die which was free with a magazine, a stencil which I've had for ages but not got round to using and some left over stamped flowers.



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,

Angela x
