Zentangle Card and Exciting News!!

Good morning friends

Before I get to my blog post today, I wanted to share some exciting news. I have posted a couple of Travellers Journals made with Eileen Hull's new Journal die from Sizzix. Now this die is SO popular it's constantly sold out. I am not surprised. When I met Eileen at CHA (thanks to Karen Burniston, who stopped to chat with her) Eileen showed us this latest addition to her collection I KNEW it was going to be big. I think I told her it was absolutely BRILLIANT and that there was a whole sub-culture of journallers out there that would be snapping it up. And I'm sure she thought I was just a crazy fan. Ha. But I was right, and the Eileen Hill Fan Club on FaceBook is blowing up with new members being added daily.

Yesterday Bella Crafts released a brand new e-book called "Journal Treasury" and it features amazing AMAZING journals and projects. I pre-ordered mine and I think I might even take it to Staples and have it printed. I love to flip through paper pages. You can get your's HERE.

So even more exciting than the release of a new e-book dedicated completely to journals - I have a some of my own work in the Gallery section! What an honour to be included in a book with these amazingly talented ladies.

I have several more journals in the works, and two finished that I haven't had a chance to post yet.

But wait - there's more. Check out Karen Burniston's Blog Post yesterday, where she announces her brand new 2017 Design Team. I'm thrilled to be working with these gals again. Thrilled.

Ok - onto my card share today. A Zentangle tile to help calm me down from all the excitement!

It's Flip-It Friday here on my blog, and I have a Z-Fold card to share. I was playing around with different card sizes as I wanted to have something that I could use with a 3-1/2" Zentangle tile,

I was pleased with how it worked out, and this will probably be the format I use when sending a tile as the card embellishment. Now, I just need to get back to my tangling!
