Almost too late!

     I opened up Diva's challenge the moment I got home Monday.  I looked at it.  I pondered it.  I avoided it.  Then I sat out to try it.  Again.  Again.  And again.  This tangle - Cruze - we had to use is so pretty and I seriously love it.  I really didn't have any trouble doing it.  The trouble began when I wanted to use it.  I could not for the life of me figure out how to make it work on a tile.  I tried several approaches, but could not make it "fit".  It gave me a real struggle.  I finally just put it down the middle of an ATC sized card and did a few tangles around it.  Rather lame.  But for the moment all I can figure out.  Now perhaps if I go and look at all the other entries, I will get some inspiration.

     I love the template for Bright Owl's dare.  I always do though.  They challenge you and inspire you.  At first I wanted to turn it into Christmas lights, but just didn't feel like working in color.  Maybe later.

     Every Inchie Monday's word was "mouth".  Here is my entry for this week.   I thought a mouth going after a sweet treat sounded good!

     I am sooooo far behind on the templates for Ornation Creation.  But think of this as a fall pumpkin and not a Halloween one and I am fine.  The thing is I painted the pumpkins about 3 weeks ago when they were posted then put them under some books so they would dry flat.  Yep.  You guessed it.  I found it today when I was moving something else.  So I decided to go to work on it.  Who knows what wonders may lurk on my crafting table?  Perhaps over Thanksgiving break I shall go on a search mission!

       Hope you have a great week and thanks for dropping by.  I would love to hear from you!

  1. I love all you have done, but the pumpkins are my favorite, the shading is so great there. Or maybe the zendala, I would never had thought of using Cadent in a center.

  2. Real nice Zendala. The pears give the feel of pea pods opening up.

  3. I love Inapod, so I am drawn to your zendala, Cathy. I am behind in the Ornation Creation too. I think there is just not enough time in each day to do all of these things. Your pumpkins were worth the wait though :)

  4. I think the Diva's Cruze challenge was something that a lot of us had a hard time with in terms of thinking of WHAT to do with it! But you managed to turn out something lovely!

    & your zendala is lovely - you got a whole bunch of dimensionality in there!

  11. 'Specially love your Zendala and your pumpkins! The pumpkins are beautifully drawn and shaded, and I love Dragonair in your Zendala, and the way you've done a line of pearls or orbs going out along one side of the pods.
