Welcome to the weekly contribution to WOYWW. Further details and links to plenty of other desks can be found at Stamping Ground. It will be the 12th anniversary of Julia's weekly blog link up in three weeks and I am already on the hunt for a nice local postcard of the area.My desk doesn't change much from week to week. There is a new sketchbook ready to go as I only have space in the current one for a few more drawings. I do have one surprise, however.

As the Love SHAC stamp set was the Clarity offer of the week last week, I thought I'd have a play and made this clean and simple engagement card with the small stamps which come with the set.

I thought the buttons from the Holland SHAC stamp set would create the perfect background for the windmill from the same stamp set by lifting ink from one of the Clarity Backdrop stamps.

This fortnight's challenge over on Tag Tuesday is Anything Goes, so I decided to play with a new stamp and some old favourites from Claritystamp in a Spring like colour combination.

Well the break seemed to fly by and I am back to the grindstone once more. Also joining in. as I do each Wednesday, with Julia and the gang in WOYWW c/o Stamping Ground.There is a sense of deja vu with my desk. Apart from sample making and my daily drawings there has not been a great deal of activity in the shed.

When I get to the end of April, I will have filled my first Daler Rowney sketchbook of the year with drawings. I have found a new source of daily prompts and I am now using the Drawing a Day prompts from April 2017. Here is a round up of the first half of the month.
A most appropriate prompt for April Fool's Day.A quick and simple sketch for day 2.HERE).HERE).HERE).Memory Bears and buys stuffing in bulk.
To finish the first half of the month, I followed a really helpful tutorial on three point perspective (see HERE).

A former colleague - long retired - turned 70 yesterday. He is a keen gardener so I made this card for him.

Morning and welcome to the weekly sharing of desks and linking in with WOYWW courtesy of Julia at Stamping Ground. I am scheduling the post but will hop out of bed early to link in then return for a lie in lol. This time next week I will be back at work so I am making the most of the ones that are left.The desk shot is rather predictable. I can't show you what I am actually working on as it involves samples for upcoming shows, so you will have to do with my traditional desk shot with my daily drawing sketch book. I will be starting a new one at the beginning of May.
