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.

WOYWW # 525 - 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 in the middle of producing another Masterboard so the desk doesn't look that exciting today.


This is as far as I've got so far but there are some new goodies there for you to spy at and I'm really looking forward to playing with that die.


The exploding box is holding the remains of a Masterboard which I used to make Monday's card which you can see here
The folder is holding a variety of small dies including the spiders you can see here. 
Slightly towards the back is a packet of tiny pearls which make great coloured texture for any project but are meant for decorating your finger nails.


A few Oxide sprays here that I'm using for the new Masterboard but who knows what will happen next? Not quite sure myself yet!

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:


I made this but didn't really like it so stopped before going any further but that's no excuse to not use it Lol! 
So here's what to do with those Masterboards that just don't fit the bill!


I cut a piece of the Masterboard to size matching this Altenew die.  Then used the die on a piece of Kraft card.


Next I took a Kraft card Blank and a stencil to add some detail to the background.


I wanted to add a ribbon to this card and although I really love this rainbow effect it needed grunging up a bit so heated it with my heat tool until the ribbon started to melt and shrivel.
Obviously you need to be careful with this technique but I do like the effect.


Then it was just a matter of putting everything together and I added some text using another die. This one is by Pink and Main and finished with some Altenew enamel dots.

So that's how I use those Masterboards that just don't do it for me.

 I would love to hear your comments and you might have other ideas too and I'd love to hear them.

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.
We've been to the Lincolnshire show this week so have plenty of pics to show you.....well too many for one day so may have to share some with you next week but here are a few to start you off.

I'm sure lots of you will know that Lincolnshire is the home of the Red Arrows but I wonder how many of you know this.

Lincoln was the Birthplace of the Tank and this is one from the First World War.


And of course there are always plenty of tractors.



This one is the same age as myself and my husband.


Other interesting things to see include wood carving.


Loving this hare.




And a very old craft of Shepherds crooks.


This little guy was having a tidy up.


And an interesting piece of art work on the go.


Wet felting too.


Not the brightest day but at least the rain held off unlike some of the days we've had recently.


Nice collection of chickens for sale.




And ducks too.


Budgies competing, very pretty. These have always been popular in the UK as pets.


And to finish off for today, some stunt riding.


 Rather them than me.


Brave or crazy, it's up to you Lol!


 And both together to finish off.

I have more to follow but that's enough for today.


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.
