My Time To Craft GDT - Zentangle

Hello!!! some happy news today! my lovely blogging friend Shell has asked me to GDT over at

I was thrilled when I saw this week's theme of Zentangle as I had a go a few weeks ago and love it... it's very relaxing and very addictive! I think I've stuck to the rules of Zentangle with this image... if not... then huge apologies!

(part or all of your image/die cut)

I've Zentangled using a 0.1 UniPin Fine Liner Pen

I think this would be a nice design for a quick note card or even for invitation... maybe to baby shower or child's birthday party. It doesn't take much longer than colouring once you get into the flow.

Hope you can pop over to My Time To Craft and see the rest of the Team's wonderful creations!

Sorry I was missing from Blogland for a while... life was throwing all sorts at me... another chest infection, IBS flare-up, and tooth trouble. I hadn't been to the dentist since my dad died as I've been having panic attacks. I finally plucked up the courage and made an appointment for a check up and three days before it... half my tooth fell out while eating a Kit Kat!! Managed to get it filled (filling from hell) but it still doesn't feel right and so I might have to go back... he said it might need extracting. I've also got four more fillings to go. Anyone would think I hadn't been to dentist for 14 years, not 14 months!! I'm SO glad my daughter hasn't inherited my teeth!! and my Dolly Mixtures have all gone in the bin!!! Lol

Anyway, feeling a lot better now and looking forward to this weekend as my daughter is home... we have Game of Thrones Season 4 to watch... and I've not seen it yet... so really looking forward to it! :-))

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Love and Hugs

Hi Sue, lovely to see a post I've missed you, really sorry to read that you haven't been well, hope everything settles down and you feel a lot better.
Love the elephant card, what patience to have done all that work, worth it though, great finished article. Enjoy the weekend with your daughter, sure you'll enjoy Game of Thrones, youngest bought it and watched it straight through, I broke it down by discs, loved every episode. Take care hugs Meg xx

Congrats on your GDT slot sweetie, it is so well deserved. Wow!! This is awesome Hun, you really have it sussed. So clever, this is cute.
Glad you are feeling a bit better and enjoy your weekend with your daughter. It is quite warm and sunny here today but I am not saying it too loudly as it isn't suppose to be nice tomorrow again.
Will be ringing my Stepdaughter in France at 2pm our time. I expect it is lovely there.

Your card is fabulous Sue, your Zentangled Elephant is brilliant - congratulations on your GDT spot.
I'm so sorry to hear that you have been so poorly and are having problems with your teeth. I suffered for months before I plucked up the courage to go to the dentist as well. I had a tooth removed and was so relieved after it was done, it was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be - a lot less painful than the actual tooth was! I hope you get everything sorted soon.
Have a wonderful weekend with your daughter.

Super card Sue for our challenge at MTTC, it's really great, sorry can't agree with you on relaxing and addictive, I really did not enjoy this challenge at all, anyway I am glad you did. Hope you enjoy your time with us at MTTC, and have a great weekend with your daughter and "Game of Thrones". Hope all goes well with the filling and glad you are feeling better.

Hi Sue, I love your elephant, gorgeous. How fun to be a guest designer. I HATE the dentist!! Being of West Indian origin, I have beautiful, but soft teeth = fillings, root canals, etc meh! Cx
