Zentangle Fun!

Hi Ladies~

Hope I find you well.

My card today is one I made for my Husband's Auntie.
I "Snail Mail" her once a month, and always send her letter inside a card I have made or bought from a Craft Show, she loves handmade things.
Unfortunately this is a sorry you have just lost your Sister letter, so it is tinged with sadness.
Ruth who has passed away was a lovely lady who contracted Meningitis at the age of 5, she was not given long to live and the disease left her like "a five year old" child all her life, she was so sweet and lived to the ripe old age of 76, not bad for someone who's life expectancy was so short....However for Auntie Joan that's no comfort, it was still her Sister, so this card has a letter inside to tell her I am thinking of her at this sad time.

This Flower image I have used is Zendoodles by Lindsay Mason (I also bought the Mushroom version too), it's so lovely to Tangle, and I am having great fun doodling inside each petal.

So not much to this one really. A card blank, the stamped image doodled with a Micron Pen, a spot of matting on black and a doddled edge. Done.

I am going to stamp some more of these flowers to Zentangle on my flight to Spain which is in 3 weeks. Those of you who know me know I "Hate Flying" and I will try anything to keep myself occupied and busy, so I don't cry like a baby! I thought this would keep me in the Zentangle Zone and stop me listening to the engine and looking to see the aircraft still has wings!

Thank you for calling by.

Hi Debbie,

When I first looked at this I couldn't see how it matched our flourish theme, but now I have really studied this gorgeous flower and can see lots of flourishes in the tangles. What a lovely innovative way of meeting a challenge!

Thanks for sharing this little beauty with us..... so sorry to hear about your Auntie's loss, but I think she will really appreciate this beautiful creation.
