Hello there faithful readers! So glad to see that you have returned for a new Zendala Dare! This week has been full of great things. A few years back my mom started a new tradition of treating all the adults in the family to the annual Lions Club crab feed. Our good friend Jody and her family are prominent in the Lions Club and each year they are ever present and sometimes my little brother even helps out. It's a great time for our whole family.

|Clo the cow is the mascot for a local dairy. She is present at many|
community events and my brothers really like to get their picture
taken with her for some reason.

We made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the shape of butterflies and dinosaurs, baked "fried" cheese that we found on Pinterest, and cut up some mixed fruit.
|Here are the kids making the baked cheese. It was|
pretty darn tasty.
|My nephew needs to really concentrate when sprinkling cinnamon!|
We finished off the day by making Shrinky Dink necklaces which was a real blast from the past and the kids loved them. Now onto something I really love......
Zendala Dare #42
This template was alot of fun and since I have been able to Zentangle during nursing school lectures I'm getting alot done. This week I was able to get three, count em, three Zendalas finished.
|Tangles: Striping, Flux, Diva Dance,|
Out of the three that I did this is my favorite. I favor organic tangles and Flux is a favorite, plus I think these tangles flow nicely with the template.
|Tangles: Knightsbridge, Printemps, Vache 1, Zinger|
This one came in a close second. I think it has a good ratio of light to dark.
|Tangles: Pia, Hollibaugh, Crescent Moon, Amaze|
This is my least favorite of the three. I don't care for the light to dark ratio. I tried to make it "heavier" with a lot of shading but it still lacks depth.
Additionally, I managed to squeeze in a little time to get this week's Diva Challenge done. Due to time constraints I haven't been able to participate for a few months but it was time that I jumped back in the game. This week the Diva challenged us to use String 003 from Linda Farmer's website, Tanglepatterns.com. It was a fun challenge. As much as I love Zendala's, sometimes it's nice to go old school.
|Tangles: Apeel, Printemps, Florz, Allium, Kwiet, Phicops,|
I hope you all have an amazing week and remember to
