A Tangled Card

I've been thinking of ways to incorporate Zentangle into my cards, every now and then, as I still love my stamping and inking very much and all the lovely patterned paper!

Here is a CAS tangled card made with an image I traced straight off my computer screen of a nicely shaped hat!

We got a reprieve from the heat today, it was really lovely!

Have a blessed day!

Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit

I've just recently received my March Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp and wanted to use it for a card this evening.  I've been scarce, but simply because time is against me at the moment, I don't seem to have enough of it.  Hopefully it will improve soon.

Here is my card, making use of the pretty papers in the kit as well as one of the journaling cards and the stamp set of course.  It's a very simple card.

I'm loving the yellows in this kit, such a refreshing colour and it makes me happy!  For that reason I am going to enter this into the current SSS Wednesday Challenge which is based on a mood board that was put together for inspiration and I'm focusing on the yellows in the board.

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.  We are experiencing some very hot and stifling days at the moment, but soon we should see signs of Autumn!

Thank you for visiting me when you can, I appreciate every comment that is left here for me.

Zentangle Sharing

I have been taking a group of ladies I had taught Zentangle to some time ago, through a 6 Weeks "A Zentangle A Day" course by Beckha Krahula.  Every day I send them a summarised version of the Zentangle® requirements for that day on our What's App Group and then we share our tiles on the same group.

It's been a lot of fun.  We are on day 29 already, so I have lots of tiles to share.  I'll share a few here today, I hope you find some enjoyment in them:

These are the first 6 days worth of tiles.  My favourites are the last 2, I thoroughly enjoyed them, they are such a contrast.

Have a fabulous day!

Simon Says "Anything Goes"

I've been busy....with other things, so my blog has suffered a bit.  But as always, the SSS Wednesday Challenge of  "Anything Goes" is always enough to get one going.  

I love the sentiment " just because", I wish I sent cards out more often for just that reason:

Just Because're worth it
... you're special
... you are on my mind
... you are on my heart
... I can't stop thinking about you
... I want to

The list of possible reasons just goes on and on, so in other words we have no excuse.  So this card will go out to someone ... just because!
Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah Solar White
Ink: Hero Arts; Versafine
Stamps: PTI; Hero Arts; SSS; WPlus9
Other: Silver gel pen

Have a wonderful day!

I wish I wasn't so rushed all the time, but I am, so my apologies for such a short post.

Happy Heart

Here is another card for this weeks Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes":

I made use of some scrap paper that was lying around in my basket.  The heart stamp is a stamp from Unity which I have had for quite some time.  I did a bit of paper piecing and layering for the flower.  And the sentiment is from PTI.

Going to be a little bit brief today as I have a lot on my plate.  So have a great day and create something!

SSS "Anything Goes"

 I thought I would add another card to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is "Anything Goes".

With Valentines coming up I wated to get a few cards made for my friends's market.
Paper: Cardstock (PTI & Neenah Solar White)
Ink: Memento
Stamps: Hero Arts; WPlus9 (sentiment)
Other: Stickles (Ranger)

I've always admired Jacqueline's use of this frame stamp from Hero Arts, of course I cannot use it the way she does, even if I try, so this is my Clean and Simple version with this frame.

Have a blessed day!
