Steampunk Festival for 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 and as promised I have lots of Steampunk Photographs just waiting to be shown. 
I have to say it was another great weekend at the Lincoln Asylum Steampunk Festival and the weather was glorious, too warm if anything.
So I'll say no more and here they are.



Such a cute little car!


Of course we had to stop for a while to hydrate!


Please be reassured that these are not real guns to be honest they are not even replicas and this one looked more like an old vacuum cleaner! Sounds like a great idea to me!


Smart.


Imaginative.


Glamorous.


You name it they are all there looking brilliant.


Always polite before photographing but never been refused and they all like to pose too.







So many wonderful costumes.



 Possibly one of my favourites though you can't really tell from this photograph just how big he was.




If you thought these were good wait till you see the next lot!
For now 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 534 - 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!


I'm working on a Halloween card but not got very far with it yet.
I'm not sure there's anything very exciting to see today. 
My exploding basket is building up again and there's my little Bosch cordless glue gun on the right. The black things just behind it are some new gloves I'm trying out.
The little tin on the right is holding some buttons I've been using.
I've not had it very long and can't stop using it, it's just brilliant.


This close-up will show you the Masterboard I'm using and maybe some other bits too. The eyes in the packet are new by Tim Holtz.


And this is new too. Sorry it's not a very brilliant photograph, it's the plastic shining in the sun.

I've also started putting some photographs on the blog which I took at the Steampunk Festival last weekend and if you're interested you can see some of them here.
There will be more to follow.

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,

Steampunk Festival Lincoln.

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

This is an extra post this week as I know some of my friends are waiting patiently to see some of the photographs from the Steampunk Festival here in Lincoln UK so here are a few to get you started.



I'm not going to bore you with any conversation here but if you enjoy seeing these let me know as I have loads more.











 There will be more of these later in the week.

So for now I am wishing you a very happy creative week.

Masterboard Monday - Floating die cut card.

 Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
I am here today to show you a card made with this Masterboard:


It is a piece left over from an earlier project but I just have to use up some of these as they seem to be growing so fast.


I've die cut some hearts first.


And then arranged them on a card blank placing them over the sides slightly. By now you may have guessed I'm making another Floating Die Cut card.


When you're satisfied with the arrangement cover them with Press and Seal and smooth it in place to attach the hearts.


Remove the whole thing from the card blank and place the dies in position. 


Die cut and add sticky dots to the heart shapes.


Before attaching the hearts to the card blank, position the images to work out where the sentiment should be and put the stamp in position.


And stamp it.


Now prepare the sticky dots and position onto the card blank. Smooth the Press and Seal and then gently remove it. I've applied some of the smaller hearts around the sentiment too.


I've finished the card by adding enamel dots.


Just a few final pics to show you the depth of the hearts.



I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Angela x

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

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.
As far as photographs are concerned I don't think there are many as I've been so busy but I do have a few taken in the garden.


My grapes are coming on though they look better than they actually are which is a shame as there are loads this year.



 The Honey suckle is doing well. 
Smells gorgeous too.


Damsons starting to ripen.


The apples are getting bigger.


Nearly dug this out when we did the pergola, glad we didn't.


Here comes Stan.


Ooohh! Ahhh! this is nice!


Time for a shake.


And a little rest.


Not in the garden as you might have guessed and getting bigger.


Sadly one of the really big old oak trees in the park lost a branch this week and I can tell you I'm pleased I wasn't there when it happened. Bet that was one almighty crack!


This is the remains.


 And to finish off....Maisie managed to find a fresh mole hill this week so she's happy too.

  By the time I see you next week I should have photographs from the Steampunk festival which takes place this weekend, well today actually until Monday.

If you would like to know more this is the link to the website: only crazy people need to check this out 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.
