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 but had to show you these.
You may remember seeing the school above..............


This is Wednesday.
School is out and skiing is in!



How sweet are these little ones.


And there's more than one way to get all those skis onto the slopes!


But good things must all come to an end at least for this year.



And now we're on our way home.


Through the beautiful Yorkshire countryside though being a Yorkshire lass I am a bit biased but now living in Lincolnshire.


Beautiful stone cottages all around, love them.


Nearly home now and back in lovely Lincolnshire.

However......
If you ever have the chance to visit Yorkshire these are some words you may hear.






And as all Yorkshire folk will tell you......


Well......


So that's me done for today, sorry if you're not from Yorkshire
 my friends but hope they made you smile all the same!

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 # 512 - 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 showing you this desk though strictly speaking it's last week's desk but I've not had much spare time since we got back and thought you might like to see what I was working on last week.


The little book you can see has been stamped using one of the new stamps that I showed on my desk last week by Visible image and do you know what.......so much snow and sun that we skied all week with out a single day off so no time for crafting!


So this is the real thing this week.


The exploding box looks less likely of explosion at the moment.


Blendable pencils.


Easter cards on the go waiting to be finished.


Some new glue by Tombow.
The cards which you can just see are lift passes. They are a bit like a credit card and although they can be reused they are also useful for crafting.....of course!


 Finally something I've not done for a while.... Angelina fibres and Fusible film, lots of fun there.

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 230 - That Special Someone.

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.


 Marlene is hosting today and our challenge is That Special Someone.


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:


  The sentiment was free in a magazine and the leaf die too. The flower is by Memory Box. The background was done using stencils by Artistic Flair and Paper Artsy. I completed the card using green cord, gems and a button.


And another card that just had to have the back decorated too.



Couldn't resist adding the leaves that came out of the die cut to decorate the inside. Waste Not Want Not as they say!


You may have realised that this is another card made with this Masterboard, it just keeps giving.
Other cards made with this Masterboard are 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.

Now I have been a bit busy this week and I'm guessing that those who know me will know what I've been up to when you see these photographs.



Great views.




I just love Icicles, they are great design starting points.


Lots of snow here. I realise that this may not make some of you smile but we love it as long as it stays here where it belongs Lol!


A bit of a Busman's holiday here. This was Sunday so all's quiet.



However Monday morning and the place is busy.
Hopefully I will have some more interesting photographs for you next week but in the mean time.........

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.


I promise to get round everyone it might just take me a bit longer.

WOYWW # 511 - What's On You 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!


And today you will see my Sizzix Big Shot foldaway die cutting machine.
To the left is a die by Crafter's Companion 

 

and on the right stamps and dies that I'm planning to use to make some Easter cards with.
Just noticed there's a little old butterfly stamp there too sitting on top my Huggies (wet ones to those of you who don't know the make)


Poor Stacy at Memory Triggers had been having problems with one of those CC dies and I said I would get mine out and find out how I used it.


I did use a Magnetic Platform and two standard plates for this rather than the standard Platform and it's slightly thicker so wondering if that made a difference.


These are the results. I have deliberately used card which can be difficult to cut. The first one with Kraft card which went through four times for a clean cut.


And the Mirri card six times for a clean cut.
Hope that's some use. I still think they are hard work to use though.


You couldn't really see these but they're new stamps by Visible image and are in the exploding basket on the left.
The black wallet at the side holds brush pens.

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:



If you've been around you will know that I've already posted one card made with this Masterboard which can be found here: but here is another.


This was made with the stamps and dies that were free in the magazine apart from the background which was the Artistic Flair stencil again.
I really love this leafy border die and I know it's going to be really useful.
Finished the card with gems and Stickles Glitter Glue.

 
You can see the Artistic Flair stencil better here. It's great for layering your backgrounds.


I've also used the leaves again to decorate the inside. This is quite an old stamp by INCA stamps but still love it.

Once you've got the Masterboard made the cards can be put together fairly quickly so it's worth making one in A3 which I've done here.

Hope you like it.
I have more cards from this Masterboard to follow soon.
 
I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Angela x

Friday Fun Day with Smiles.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi all. 
Hope your week has been a good one.


This should make you smile for sure.





Stan is playing at being a Laptop Dog again but this time he's using it as cushion. 
How can anyone work like that Lol!

Moving on.....

 For a long time this building outside has been a space to put stuff!
I'm sure you know what I mean and not really anything that makes me smile when I go in there either.



 Well I decided it was time to make better use of it as the workshop it was always meant to be. So a good clear out is at hand as I speak though you can hardly tell we've done anything though I can get in it and it looks like this at the moment:



There are bird boxes, tons of vases and jugs, you know the stuff we all keep just in case we might use them Lol! then garden tools, Art work that hasn't seen the light of day since college days, Textiles equipment such as a Wax Boiler for Batiking, garden umbrellas.....well you know the sort of thing I'm sure.

Once the weather gets better hopefully we will clear it out properly, get rid of the mice who have demolished a few things Lol! and get it all cleaned up.

I will keep you informed of the process as soon as the work commences for real and then I should have something to smile about. 

We have already found stuff I had completely forgotten about like a drawer full of old craft magazines but they've got to go!

For those of you who looked around mine last week and believed the new plant to be real, I'm sorry it's not though some of you had worked it out. Still the closeup shows how good it is at making you think otherwise.

I had gone to the garden centre with the intention of buying a live Ficus as these are one of the few plants which do not mind indoor living however I saw these and they were so realistic and don't need watering or feeding and for the price you get a much larger plant so it was a no-brainer!
By the way the Iris is doing well too.


Now that is real!

Other than that it was pretty much a usual week though I did have a nice day out with some old workmates which was nice after visiting the acupuncture clinic.

As lots of you know it was National Book day last week and I have a lovely photo here of my Cousin's little girl all dresses up and ready to go. How gorgeous is she! 




Now she really does make me smile!

Quite fancy that costume myself actually!


Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.

Angela xXx
