Weekly Challenge #181 "Water"

The weekly challenge from i am the diva this week is “Water”. Like Laura and family, I am taking advantage of the last hurrah before school starts to spend some time at the lake. Here is my tile using Seeing Stars, Phicops, a bit of Tipple, and a Yew-dee/Well tangleation. 

Enjoy “Surf's Up”!

I have continued playing with the Bijou tiles so here are the latest in the bunch.

You never know what you are going to see on Lake Pepin, and I just had to share the “house boat” that motored on past the other day!  Recycling at its best, complete with the lace curtains, and the chocolate Lab on board!

 Thank you to all of you who took the time to leave me a comment last week. 
You make my day!

Have a great week and Tangle On!

Weekly Challenge #180

It’s a Terrific Tuesday!

This week’s challenge from i am the diva is a UMT, use my tangle, brought to us by Anneke Van Dam. I had some fun playing with this tangle, and here is the result.

I also continued to play with the Bijou tiles, as I received my order, and they were so much fun last week. 

Last is a photo of the Super Moon, the night before it was actually full. The weather report called for clouds, for the full moon, so I figured this was going to be it, if I wanted to see it. It was amazing, almost like having daylight. No retouching at all on the photo and it was just taken with my trusty point and shoot.

Thanks for the lovely comments from everyone last week, 
and for stopping by this week to see what I have been up to.

Tangle On!

Weekly Challenge #179

Greetings to Bijou this Tuesday! I am so glad to have you out in public!

The challenge from i am the diva was to try out this new format! You can find out more about Bijou here.

I am waiting for my Bijou tiles to arrive, so for this weeks challenge I was not sure what I wanted to do. But wait, I thought to myself…. I think I have something that will work. While at Tangle U earlier this spring we were gifted two wee samples of Sue Jacobs beautiful hand colored tiles, a round and a square one. What if they were the right size? I was lucky and the square one was the perfect Bijou size! If you are interested in Sue’s tiles and want to order some for yourself, you can see and read all about them here. They are really quite lovely.

I decided that Bijou would walk along the Printemps trail, among the Zingers.

I also continued to enjoy leaving some RAZ’s, Random Acts of Zentangle, around Lake City, Minnesota.

First I left this one at Port 104, a restaurant/bar, with an attached bowling alley. They had some folks in there bowling one evening and here is the tile I left behind and the placement on the table.

The second one was left at my favorite little shop, Treats and Treasures. Here is the tile placed in the shop, (sorry about the quality, but I had to be really subversive with this one due to the other shoppers). They have the greatest fudge! My current favorite is the Espresso, followed closely by the Dark chocolate caramel sea salt.

Here is a better shot of it.

 We continue to enjoy the beautiful view, sitting out in front of our place in the evenings.


 My thanks to you for stopping by, 
and to all of you lovely people who commented on my work last week, 
You Rock!

 Have a Terrific Tuesday and Tangle On!
