I have been getting out for my morning walks though
and discovered that a neighbour is selling these giant Adirondack chairs!
Too fun!

'card fit for a queen' challenge

Well, I'm not sure if this card is 
fit for a royal queen . . .  
perhaps Amphitrite the queen of the sea?

It happened again.
I mentioned recently that sometimes my everyday life
sneaks into my drawings . . .

Every summer I decorate our home with a beach/nautical theme so this card ended up taking a beachy turn.

No worries though, I now have a handmade card to give to someone and I got to play around with one of my favourite tangles - Paushalov.

Thanks for stopping by,

Welcome back!
I somehow got my dates mixed up so this challenge was meant for last week!
In Canada last Monday we celebrated Victoria Day - a holiday originated to celebrate Queen Victoria's Birthday.

So today's challenge is to

tangle a
(belated) birthday card
fit for a Queen

I find it handy to have spare greeting cards on hand so I'll tuck this one away for someone extra special!

Sorry about the mix up!

diva and daniel challenges


Diva's challenge asked us to tangle white on black on found.
I felt like keeping it simple this time so I have drawn Maria's tangle N'zeppel with a white Gelly Roll pen and shaded it with a white China marker.


 When I saw the tangle Prestwood I immediately thought of one of those toothpaste ads with the perfect swirl of toothpaste on the brush so that's where I went with this.  Verdgogh makes nice toothbrush bristles doesn't it?! ;o)

Are you working on any tangle challenges this week?  
Come back on Friday and share them on my "Inside my Sketchbook" Link Up.

ps.  Oh and check out my new tangle - Delph! 
If you think it isn't a new pattern, please let me know!
