Morning and welcome to my weekly sharing of the desk with the gals at WOYWW, hosted by Julia at Stamping Ground. The place where you can nose around craft rooms to your hearts content.This week's photo was taken by my phone as my trusty camera has a lens error which I cannot resolve despite hours on YouTube and trying different methods. It is rather a pain as it is far more laborious transferring photos from my phone to the computer than using the SD card on the camera. I am trying to source a replacement camera which takes NP-45 Li-ion batteries as I have a charger and three spares for the camera which has just stopped working. Any suggestions greatfully received. I can get another of my current brand, but only second hand. My desk shows my desire to get all my marking out of the way before the holidays as this is my last day at work for two weeks. Daily drawings have been continuing as usual too.

I had fun creating this one layer, clean and simple card. Next time I would probably stamp the outline before using the mask though.

The latest fortnightly challenge over on Tag Tuesday is Mostly Monochrome. I decided to use shades of brown for the monochrome with a touch of Cracked Pistachio.

I missed Barbara Gray's first Facebook Live event using this reflection mask set, but couldn't resist having a play for myself the day after. I made this birthday card with the Pine Trees by the Riverside pair.

By all accounts Shaz's funeral service was moving, beautiful and very fitting and I was sad not to be able to attend even virtually. However I understand that Doug will be sharing a recording of the service when it is available so I look forward to being able to pay my respects then. Wednesdays are rushing by ever quicker with the return to face to face teaching. This time next week it will be last day in school before the Easter holidays!
Here is my desk for the weekly contribution to WOYWW, care of Julia's Stamping Ground, where more desks can be visited.It's the usual view I am afraid - ready to do my daily drawing before I go to work.

The wheelie chess stencil from Claritystamp is fun and works really well with the grungy grid stamps.

I am still determined to make use of all my Clarity New Design Club stamps this year. I used two of the three from February to create this bright birthday card.

As I am determined to do a daily drawing throughout 2021 I needed to find suitable prompts to keep me going. For March, I decided to work with the #inktober2016 prompts as I hadn't taken part at the time. Here is the first half of the month all gathered into one place.I am trying to think outside the box more, and rely less on tutorials for help.

How soon we get back into routine. It's as if we were never away from school. Wednesdays still come round quickly too as I join in with Julia and the gang on Stamping Ground for WOYWW and my weekly desk share.My photo looks as if my shed is stuck on Groundhog Day as it doesn't change much from week to week. I am closing in on 25% of 2021 with a daily drawing. The orange Kipling pouch holds my pencil, eraser, pencil sharpener, Posca pens and my small sketchbook comfortably.

I am really enjoying keeping up with the monthly challenges over on Mission Inspiration. This month's prompt was Magnificent Machines – cogs, gears, pistons, engines, levers & gadgets. The suggested colours were Berry Red, Cerulean Blue and Copper. The prompt techniques, to be included in any order were handwritten text, frame or border, fabric scraps, metallic paints, and book text.

I thought it was time I joined in with the fortnightly Tag Tuesday challenge. A new stamp set arrived that fitted the Things with Wings prompt perfectly.

I love this quote by Gandhi and thought it went well with the stamp and stencil that I chose for this card.

Yesterday I shared the notelets that I made with the new Grungy Grid and Chess Silhouette stamp sets from Clarity. Today I am sharing the box I made from one sheet of card to hold the notelets.

I had fun mixing and matching the Clarity Grungy Grid and Chess Silhouette stamps to create these chess themed notelets.

Wednesdays are still coming round more and more quickly it seems. This is the first WOYWW of 2021 which is a normal workday as pupils are back in school. I am sharing my desk as usual and joining in with Julia and gang at Stamping Ground - please feel free to join in. This is also my 1700th blog post!
All went well on Monday, the pupils really seemed happy to be back in school for the most part and testing went smoothly.
