Circle of Frients June Project

The project for this month was to make something using a Shape, and you had to be able to tell what that shape was when you're finished.

I hope you can tell that my Shape was . . . Oval. I cut all the pieces using my Cricut Machine first I cut all the solid pieces and then using the Silhouette feature I cut out a coordinating color and this gave me the smaller pieces and the outline piece which I attached to the solid pieces. I stamped my little birdie on each of the small pieces, added glitter glue to the each of the petals, a flower in the middle and a fancy bead on top of that. I made these in several different colors.
Thanks for taking a look.

New Zentangles

I am finally starting to work on projects again and this is the first one I have finished in quite some time:

These are a pair of Round Ornaments for a swap I am doing at Doodlers Haven. Each month for 6 months we will do a different shaped ornament. I used colored pencils, glitter pens and glitter glue to finish these off.
Thanks for taking a look and please do leave a comment.

I am Back

I have been gone most of June - my dad had a triple by-pass done on May 30th and he just got out of the hospital yesterday. He was not in great heath when he went in and some of those issues became problems as the recovery time went on. Right now he is in Rehab in Port St Lucie, Fl and once he has gained strength and is able to walk on his own he can go back home. He also needs to start eating, or his strength will never return. I spent three week down there so I could see him every day and be there for support for his wife Carol. It's been a very trying time, but I now feel things are finally turning around and the true healing and recovery can begin.

Thanks and bless you all
