WOYWW # 528 - 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 Doncaster for Crafting Live at the Racecourse on Saturday and these are the nice things I brought back with me.


Now I apologise again for having a boring desk as I have just finished this card and I'm about to start something new which does seem to happen quite a lot on a Wednesday. 
I think it's because usually I tend to make things at the weekend, have a rest on Monday, visit my mum and dad on Tuesday then Wednesday clear enough away to start again.
So I'm sure you will understand.
If you like the card you can see it better here.

So please forgive me for the boring desk.

 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 # 238 - Here Comes Summer.

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.

Chanya is hosting today and our challenge is 'Here Comes Summer'.  

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:



These Woodware stamps are so full of gorgeous detail.



A great set with text stamps too.



I started by stamping onto some hand coloured background papers. These had been prepared earlier using Distress Oxides. I used Archival ink for the stamping as I intended adding some extra colour later.



You will notice that I've stamped this several times, might as well get a few done while the stamp is covered in ink Lol!


I used a ball tool on the centre of the flower to round it a little and then
added Stickles Glitter Glue and when dry went over this with Glossy Accents, also added this to the text. 


Next attached the flower using the centre, leaving the petals loose so they could stand out giving dimension to the flower.



I used scissors to grunge the edge of the top layer and completed the card by adding a little more Stickles Glitter glue to the dots and circles.

 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 crafting,
Angela x
I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:
Penny Black and More: July Summer Colours.

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 though there's nothing too exciting but then I can do boring for a change really.

Mostly I am cat sitting for a friend who has gone on holiday.


Tiger the cat.

Loads to do in the garden but not really done much yet!


Not really brilliant photos as I took these through the window and though I had the camera on a suitable setting I think the window needs a bit of a clean really but as it's the man's job it doesn't happen too often Lol!


Still, I'm sure you can see that this is a visiting Pigeon having a little rest and it makes a rather nice addition to the chair.


 I have a few of these planting troughs which look a bit like the old stone ones but are synthetic so much lighter in weight. 


Hydrangeas are doing well right now.


Purple variety


and Pink.


And the Passion flower.

I'm going to finish off with a photo of my God Daughters little girl. The school decided to have a mock wedding and they've chosen her as the bride.


How cute is that!


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 # 527 - 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 not sure I should be giving you such a good view of the mess just to the left though I don't need to tell you which side it's on as I think it's pretty obvious really!


I could apologise for the my desk looking untidy but once again I'm just moving on to a new project, well two actually and time is not on my side so the tidying up thing will have to wait.

I have just completed another card using the Chevron die and it can be found here.

Most of the stuff above is waiting to be made into a Wedding Card.


Now this side looks better. The little tub just has some bits which popped out of something I was die cutting but no idea what I'm going to do with them but I need to stop saving these bits and pieces.


I'm sure you've seen this corner before but it's were I keep some of my ribbon and I really mean some! 
The little box under the tag punch contains die release paper which is a bit like tissue paper. 
Then there's  Little Ted and Monkey who actually serve no purpose at all in crafting but just keep me company. 
The metal dishes are not on the teddies head though it looks like that.
It's not easy to see but there is a clear plastic stand in the box and the teddy is sitting under it. It's what I use when I'm working with Fantasy Fibres and the metal dishes are on top of it.

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:


Unlike my usual Masterboards this is just A4. 
I wonder how many of you start to colour a piece of card and then hate it, well that's what happened here so then I stopped and it's been sitting in the box for months so I thought it was time I did something with it and this is what happened.


If you've been around before you may well recognise the die as I've used it before.
The earlier card can be found here. 
This looks quite different to the first card I made.


Suddenly I quite like that paper but what do you think?
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.


Time for the Craft Club again and the ladies were having a go at making one of my Wallet Files.


I have to say they were very enthusiastic and came up with some great ideas to decorate them.


Gorgeous colours.


I had written out instructions for them to follow as you can see here.


Can't wait to see this one finished, just look at those colours.


 One of my favourites.


Loved the papers used here.




Also been in the park walking dogs. 
There are so many people joining in the park run now, it's brilliant.


Not sure you can call these cygnets any more as they are so big now.


We went to see the Little Shop of Horrors at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, what fun.


Completely mad but brilliant.


This could put anyone off going to the dentist ever again Lol!

The young women on the left is actually a PE teacher that I used to work with, she always seemed normal Lol! 

Some of you may remember this was originally shown as a film in 1986 and is an American rock musical comedy horror and it's now becoming popular as a stage show. 
It's great if you don't mind seeing a large plant eating people! 
Anyway, I'm off now to see what you've all been up to.

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

WOYWW # 526 - 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!



There isn't a big difference from last week though I have got round to cutting the Masterboard but you will have to wait to see how I use that.
The exploding box is just about holding up and to the left of that is a little silver box that holds my Alcohol inks. 
Still got loads of Distress sprays out though I need to tidy those away before I get onto the next bit.

 I've left these out to show you. 
Some new Altenew stamps and dies though not had time to do anything with them as I was busy at the craft club on Saturday and friends round yesterday, such a busy time Lol!

I know some of you, certainly Caro said she would like to see how I used the Chevron die that was on my desk last week, it's actually stood up just at the back there.. 
I have had a little play with it and there is a link to the card and how I made here if you would like to see it.

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 # 237 - Dies or Punches.

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.

Jo is hosting today and our challenge is Dies or Punches.

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:





This is were it all began with me trying to use up some left-over Masterboards again! I cut out several different pieces with the same die.


When you cut it you end up with a very useful looking frame as well as the die-cut chevron pieces.


I decided to leave some pieces in the frame and attached this to some Creative Expressions Double-sided Adhesive Sheet.


Next attached some pieces from the other die cut Masterboards 
then peeled away the backing, layered it with another piece of Masterboard and a piece of white card attaching this through the frame.


I liked the way the white card helped the design to stand out so just had to add some white splatter.... what fun!

Finished this off with a sentiment from Creative Dies Designs and that's your lot!

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 well last week actually and I promise this will be the last look at the Lincolnshire show.


We always like to pop over to see this guy at the shows with his sheep.
He's an Australian who trains sheep and dogs.


The sheep are all different breeds.

 And of course he has a Lincoln Longwool though this one has had a haircut by the look of him.


He demonstrated the shearing technique.



 But the best part has to be when they all dance to the music!




 It's probably difficult here to see the sheep dance though you can see them moving their heads and feet and I have to say it is so funny and they actually seem to be enjoying it.



 From there I called in to see the hounds.


And the Beagles.


Next something a bit more crafty.



I'm sure you are aware that Lincoln has a very famous Cathedral and the work is continuous in replacing the stone.



 These pieces are all made by hand and are amazing.


 The detail is incredible.


There are always interesting things to see.




 Fire Eater.



Lots of things for the children. Although most of them are at school on the show days, some schools do bring groups of children.


Pleased he's not real!


The Strong Men showing off their muscles.


And then I decided to pop into the Women's Institute tent.
 I know these look like fruit and vegetables...well they are but knitted, how cute are they.



Here we have a needle felted hare, love him. He has such a lovely face.


Then the Flower tent.


These are so beautiful and so well designed.


I love the way they've done this one.



Just the last couple to finish off and then I'm gone.


I hope you enjoyed wondering around the show with me though of course I could only show you a small part of what was there otherwise we would be here for ever Lol!

 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.
