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 which hasn't been very much so I'm showing you some of the things that make me happy.


Absolutely love Orchids.


And this beauty is flowering right now.


The colour is amazing.


Found this little beauty in the park that someone had left. It's a painted pebble.


The garden is looking a little sad but still makes me smile. It's been quite mild here so the fish are still swimming around and eager for some feed but I'm only giving them a little so getting lots of dirty looks Lol!


 These flowers are so pretty and I've bought the plant for a friend so hope it brightens her day too.


This was a gift from a another dog walker we meet in the park.


This just keeps flowering, so pretty.


This is a Jade plant. I have had it's parent plant for many years.


And talking about things we've had for years these two have moved around with me many times and are now settled here. They are made of balsa wood and could probably do with some new paint added.

So that's it really but leaving you with some funnies, hope they make you smile.




and Sheep funnies too:

Let's hope it's not number 4. Lol!


Have a great weekend and a very Happy New Year....hopefully! and thanks for stopping by and all your lovely comments this year.

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 share your smiles too.

WOYWW - 656 - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

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


Hi Workdesk friends. 
We are here for another Wednesday at the Workdesk and here is:
"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!


As you can imagine there hasn't been much going on here but I am determined this new year I will get back to the journals.


So I got two of the old ones out to try and get myself in the mood.
This little one is really a technique journal that I play around with usually with no real idea in mind but sometimes they turn out okay. I used a round gel plate and stencils not sure where it will go next, if at all. If you have any ideas just shout out!


Another old journal. The front cover is a mixture of textures and Tyvek.


Still got some of that Masterboard but decided to cut it up as I have a scanned image of it too it might become a mini book.
Just below there are some quite old Paper Artsy sentiment stamps that I thought might work with some of the pages but we'll see. 
I think I have a plan!!!!👀


So that's me done for today, hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

 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 or maybe not!

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

Just in case I don't get round to putting anything here today Maisie and Stanley are back to show you what they've been up to.


I don't think Stan looks very impressed.


Unlike Maisie here, how comfy is that.


Stan doesn't actually drink champagne! but he does love the cushion.


It certainly is a dog's life around here!

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting when we get back to it which shouldn't be too long if we can all stay awake that is!

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.

More beautiful art work found in the park.


Building has begun for real at the  back of us and it's getting very muddy too.


But what is this, she must be going somewhere?


Off for new glasses at Boots Chemist. It's a shame that going to the Opticians is the most exciting thing that happened all week!
There are so many spectacles to choose from and guess what? I ended up with an identical pair to my old ones, it was not deliberate!


As I was in town I thought you might like to see what was going on. This was about 2.30 Wednesday afternoon (14.30 for my European friends).


Just enough time to stand and listen to my favourite instrument.

And a few dog funnies to make you smile.




And finally Maisie and Stan are here to wish you a very Merry Christmas and hopefully a better New Year.


Or maybe not!


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 - 655 - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

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


Hi Workdesk friends. 
We are here for another Wednesday at the Workdesk and here is:
"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.



Everything looks almost tidy for me though not much different. I've been working on my Masterboard from last week.
Even the Exploding Box looks tidy.


These are some new stamps which I've taken out of the exploding box to show you.

And now my desk last week which is much more interesting!


Now what do you think is in here!


My Christmas present to me!


They call it their Christmas Hamper and it'a available in different styles and prices, this one is Steampunk though you have probably guessed that.
There's so much that I don't know where to start but I'm sure you'll see something happening after Christmas.

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:


Finished Retiform Masterboard.


This is the original A3 Masterboard stamped with AALL and Create stamps which you may remember I started last week.
Since then I've also scanned it to give me some extra pieces to work with.


I followed this up by stamping some extra pieces to add to the Masterboard.


Then cut a piece to work on.


Some Black Distress ink was used to shade the edge.


Then attached the masterboard piece to the white card and added some additional stamping.


I then left that to dry while I worked on some of the other pieces using the same inks to add colour.


And some sweet little dragonflies too.


One of the dragonflies was added to the inside of the card.


And one to the outside with some shiny green thread. 
I've fussy cut and attached one of the extra stamped pieces and layered up a sentiment too using the same colours that I've used to layer up the card.


You may be able to see from this close-up that I've added some splashes of white paint, some shading and Stickles Glitter glue on the insects.

And that's all for today but I do have lots of the Masterboard to play with so you may see some more samples soon.

I would love to hear your comments.

Many thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

Angela x
