Sadly, sympathy cards are ever more in demand. This butterfly stamp set designed by Cherry Green provides a beautiful image for such a card.

Is it really a week since our last get together over on Stamping Ground with WOYWW? It was so good to see all the photos and read the memories of Shaz. I even saw video footage of the first WOYWW crop over on Facebook thanks to Doug sharing (before my time).My desk this morning resumes some sort of normality as I prepare for my daily drawing and my first day of teaching after half term. Only another week of online teaching to do after this one, as schools are back with face to face lessons on 8th March.
I do need your help though, dear deskers. I have found sufficient prompts to keep me going to the end of the year with a daily drawing. However, I will be one prompt short at the end of #inktober2017 to the start of March's daily drawing prompts. Please could you give me suggestions. I will share the prompts I have completed over the years so far, as well as my March prompts so duplication can be avoided.
I will be following the #inktober2016 prompts during March.

At the time that this card was made for a colleague on maternity leave, the gender of the baby was unknown, hence the neutral colour palette.

I had fun with the February prompts over on Tag It Tuesday. The colours this month are red and orange and the four techniques are add thread or other fibres, use a quote found on interest or Facebook (see HERE), add a flower, drawn, painted, or collaged and use Washi tape. I used all six promts and this is the result.

Welcome to the weekly desk share with WOYWW courtesy of Julia keeper of links at Stamping Ground. This week we mourn the loss of one of the stalwarts of our group: Shaz (Silverwolf) Brooks.I spent some time the other day, having heard the sad news of her passing, looking through my stash of WOYWW ATCs from crops and swaps. Even though I only met Shaz and her husband Doug a handful of times, to read her blog was to know her. Enabler, generous sharer of techniques, crafty research and online bargains, Shaz could always be relied on to tell it how it is. LLJ and Julia have summed up Shaz so much better than I can on their blogs this week and her husband Doug has also made a moving tribute to his soulmate on Shaz's blog. It is well worth a visit for tips, techniques and crafty product reviews.
I will leave you with some photos of various meetings with Shaz and Doug (Doug was invariably behind the camera).Our first meet up at Port Sunlight with Lynne, Chris and Neet in front.
Rest In Peace Shaz.

Over half way through February and I am still on track with my plan of keeping up with a daily drawing. I only joined in with #inktober for the first time in 2018, so thought I'd go back and work on the prompts from #inktober2017. Here is the first half.My first thought for the prompt. I followed a tutorial online (see HERE).

I have had great fun making children's cards with the Linda's seasonal children stamp sets from Clarity.

The larger Doodle Round Leaf stencil and coordinating stamps made the perfect background for this journal page featuring a magazine clipping of a dog walker.

As usual on a Wednesday, joining in with WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?) with Julia and the gang at Stamping Ground. Please do pop over to find out more. I am sure we are all thinking of Shaz (Silverwolf) and her amazing husband Doug. Keeping them both in my prayers.
I'll be round to visit later or tomorrow (vaccine side effects permitting). Stay safe and happy WOYWW everyone.

I combined one of the stamp sets in the new Linda's Children collection with the corresponding Entwined Wreath to create this Autumn card.

I haven't participated in Tag Tuesday for a while. The current prompt is use a photo or part of one. I also feel this tag meets the Mid Month Mini Mission prompt for January over on Mission Inspiration: Secret.

Morning. Joining in with the weekly Wednesday link up with Julia and the rest of the WOYWW crowd at Stamping Ground. Please pop over to find out more.It's my rota week for delivering distance learning from home so Tom and Peter are back keeping me company as you can see. I am still doing the daily drawings but actually plan to find time to make a tag for the Tag Tuesday challenge - use a photo or part of one. I have moved on to the inktober2017 prompts for the end of January and February and have found daily drawing prompts for the rest of the year by doing a google search.
I haven't had any problems with computer freeze so far this week so I hope that that continues. I must admit that I am looking forward to the half term break already. We have an INSET day immediately afterwards which has been given to us as a wellbeing day so that will extend the break too. Stay safe everyone and happy WOYWW.
