These people are so imaginative.

WOYWW # 482 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 quite what you expected as we've been away for a few days with my parents but didn't want you to miss out on my desk this week even though nothing is really happening.


I am spending this week concentrating on my new camera and my parents of course.
None the less I shall find time to visit you all, it just might take me a bit longer than usual but I'll be there.

A few of you had asked me last week what the Felting Bulb was for so at least I can add some interest to this post.

Image result for felting bulb spray

This is a rubbery container which holds water, it has a metal tube which is pushed inside and this has a rose spout on the end rather like watering can. This piece of kit is used for wet felting and releases the water better than a spray for this type of work but could easily be used for other projects needing a sprinkler I'm sure.
If you need further info about this or want to buy one I have a link 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.

 I'm off soon to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

Angela xXx

Masterboard Monday Using Left-Overs.

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

I am here today to show you a card made with left-over Masterboard:
I coloured a piece of A4 card with shades of red Distress Oxide and used a small section to make a card and as usual the spare pieces just got put away and forgotten.
Well that piece of paper has shown it's face again and has been stamped and revitalised to make this card.

The heart stamp I used on the background is Stampotique so are the little dogs and also the heart bunting along the top. The border stamp and sentiment stamps were free with a magazine.



I have stamped the Stampotique girl (Gooseneck) several times, sections were cut out and attached to the card.
The stamped areas to be coloured were heat embossed to resist the inks used for the colouring.
Small areas were completed using white and red pens and others by adding Stickles Glitter Glue.
I love this make of stamps but they seemed to have got packed away and not used for a while so pleased to have them out again.

I would love to hear your comments.
 
Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Dragonfly Dreams - August challenge # Monochrome.
A Vintage Journey - 'How can you Resist?'

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.

 
Found these in Morrisons Supermarket would you believe!
One of the ladies who works at the Dry Cleaners is a keen follower of the Steampunk Festival and these belong to her friend.
As you read this the Steampunk Festival will have started in Lincoln and I'm off tomorrow to take photos so you can expect to see some of them next Friday.
 
For now here are some things that made me smile this week.
The River Trust were out encouraging people to appreciate the importance of the waterways here in Lincolnshire.


In the garden I found this little snail climbing over my metal frog, he just looked so cute.

 
Not sure I've shown you this before but it was made by one of the pupils my hubby taught and as it was left unwanted it found it's way into the garden.
I can't imagine why he was not wanted as he is gorgeous! Makes me smile anyway.

 
Found this in the Park. Painted slate. Nothing written on it but guessing it's one of the Ninjas that left it there.

 
I had to show you this poor plant!
This is what is left of the lawn at the moment, pathetic, yet this Snap Dragon has found it's way onto the lawn and is looking quite healthy.


 Close-up.
 
 
What a Beauty!
 

 
Found this in the garden too.
 
They are so beautiful and this was a big one.

 
Not sure what happened to this one.
We do have lots of them, I believe because there is a lot of damp ground that our garden backs on to.
 

 Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.
 
Next week is going to be very different but you will just have to wait and see what I have for you.
 
 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.
