I decided to use just one of the additional stamps from the A5 Gnomes Billboards set to create a colourful panel for this Christmas card.

Half way through my third to last week of term and starting to get tired. Reports will be finished by Friday and I have the two days I work in the last week off to rewrite the curriculum ready for September. I have planned to get this done by the end of July so I can enjoy August with no thought of work.
Anyway, you are here to see my desk as I join in with Julia and the gang for WOYWW via Stamping Ground.Look what arrived on Saturday, along with the sprays and the Oxide reinker. I have been pre ordering the new Tim Holtz colours since he started bringing the new ones out and haven't been disappointed yet. I have already used the ink on a card and will be using the others before too long I am sure.
I am having trouble commenting on some blogs (Christine, Lyn, Lynne, Lilian and Susan). For some reason I have been signed out of google on those blogs and it won't let me log back in. I have no idea why as I am still logged in on other blogs. So sorry - I do visit everyone but can't always leave a comment.
Stay safe and Happy WOYWW

I decided to create a set of notelets using the Mandala stamp which was the April 2022 Clarity Club offering (#186).

Not that I am counting down to the holidays lol. I will have time off in lieu during the last official week to get the curriculum rewritten otherwise it would be four weeks. Any way you are here to see my desk as part of the WOYWW link via Julia and Stamping Ground so here goes...Meet the grandkitty Jess. She popped over on Father's Day with #2 son and paid a visit to the shed. She hadn't been in it before and had a good look round.

I thought I'd bring together all the projects I have done using the Kitchen stamps from Claritystamp. There are also themed sets for sewing, gardening and art. As always, there are links to the step by step instructions below each card.

Rather than use the main die - a lovely pouch box - from the Carity club offering for April, I used the additional decorative dies that come with it to make a birthday card.

The latest challenge over on Tag Tuesday is 'Use a die cut'. Not a problem as I have every die that Claritystamp has ever produced to choose from. Here's what I ended up making using the Five Dandelions Aperture die.

Halfway through June already and my daily quick journal page challenge continues. I have barely made a dent in the stickers and papers I have accumulated so it may well continue into 2023. As always each page is finished with stickers from one of the four word collections from Claritystamp.
I decided to step away from a vintage look and use some of my dragonfly and butterfly stickers on the next few pages.

The end of the school year is in sight but things are not easing up yet. We are in the middle of assessments and Friday is sports' day so equally busy. I seem to have just as many projects on the go at home too.I am getting plenty of prep. for my #dailychallenge2022 done in advance and have nearly finished gessoing all the pages of my July/August journal. I also posted off eight samples on Monday ready for shows on Friday this week. Expecting more secret stuff any time ready for the first Sunday in July as well.
Stamping Ground to find out more about WOYWW and the reason why my desk is always shown on a Wednesday. Hoping for a short meeting after school tonight after the marathon twilight session last week. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW.
