This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

I want to share a "first"

I know I am behind the times, but I just recently discovered the art of the Zentangle. What is it? "creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns" This is something you can do while you sit in the dentist's waiting room or when you need an afternoon break. It is relaxing and helps you to focus and it is just plain fun to do! You can learn all about it here: There are lots more sites and tons of online images if you want to see some amazing art work. My example is just my first baby step. I made it into an easel card for my daughter's birthday. I wanted to give her something really original.  (She thought I stamped it, go figure!) Anyway, I hope you will check out the Zentangle site and maybe give it a try.

Supplies all Stampin' Up!:

I used my black Stampin' Write marker on Whisper White card stock, then mounted it on Real Red card stock with Dimensionals and then on a Basic Black mat.

Finally, something crafty to post...

This is the card I made for my brother-in-law, Dave for his birthday. Of course, he is a fly fisherman. I thought he would get a kick out of this and I was not disappointed. The inside is finished and the belt goes all around the back. It opens in the center.

Stampin' Up! card stock: Crumb Cake and Soft Suede
Stampin' Write marker, black, Lattice embossing folder
Brown enamel brads and two pewter lacing brads
