Challenges and Zentangles.

Good morning you all. Had a longer sleep than usual today, so that was good, Today is a public holiday again, so all the shops and post are closed.
Yesterday I was painting pink again, but now I have my pink works finished. One will be shown tomorrow for Paint Party Friday, and the others are for the *Week of Colour* on Monday.
But I did do some other bits and pieces yesterday, I made tags for 2 challenges and did 2 more cat cards just so.

The first tag is for the *Three Muses Challenge* who want to see something whimsical, quirky or humorous. Not easy, given how I feel just now, but I have put together an owl and a pussy cat....

The second tag is for the Blog Challenge Garden , where Rebecca wants to see something with a 7 or with 7 of something on it, so I found this pretty image of a girl with 6 roses. I KNOW!! 6 is one short of 7. I put the seventh one in her hair!

And then I dug out 2 more of my zentangle pictures, so I will torture you with those, too!

Hands and faces are things which fascinate me, and which I very often dream of, which is why they find their way onto so many of my pics.
And here the 2 little pussies I doodled last night whilst watching TV:

OK, that was enough for today, hope you all have a good day, take care, and thanks a lot for visiting!


  1. Good morning Valerie. Your tangles are really really awesome really sunning , love the use of red in them very unusual and pure genius. Love your lady with the roses the doily looks like she has a halo !! As for the owl and the pussycat definitely quirky and love how they are eyeballing each other.
    Have a great day.


  2. Always did love that poem .. The owl and the pussycat .. the tag is gorgeous. Your #7 is wonderful .. but your zentangles ... AH, they are really SOMETHING! Very dramatic again .. they fascinate me, Valerie. Faces and hands together also make intriguing subjects. The kitties -- would make fabulous little prints or cards .. so heart warming. Do hope you feel better soon, take care. Hope the weather is better now. hugs, Donna
