Weekly Challenge #193
TriTangle: 'Trio', Huggins', and 'Xyp'

   This week's challenge is brought to you by Holly Atwater, in place for our Diva, Laura. (Laura is on break for the month of November while her son Artoo has surgery and comes to recovery. So she needs her family time and our prayers, that all goes well!!!)
   Holly has chosen tangles that spell out THX. Which is short for Thanks! Because today is Veterans Day in the US and because we will be celebrating Thanksgiving this month, we are here to say "Thank You"!!!!
We have the tangles
'Trio' , by CZT Hanny Waldburger
'Huggins' by Zentangle 
'Xyp', by Zentangle
Lighting was a little bad on this one. 
   I enjoyed this Challenge. "Thank You Holly for filling in this week, it was a fun challenge!"
Purple Heart for all those Veterans who saved a life and yellow ribbon in honor of all Veterans!!!
   I ,...'THANK ALL SOLDIERS' who have made the US the safe and free country that it is! Your bravery and dedication are never forgotten! I hope you can enjoy this day with family and friends! Many Blessings and prayers go out to all those who have lost someone in honor of protecting our country!!! XO's

Weekly Challenge

   So many things popped into my head for this week's Inchie word. The Hymn from church, 'Gifts of Finest Wheat', Gluten Free, a bushel of wheat, Wheaties cereal, and etc.
So I decided it was another great word to do some quilling. 
Here is my bushel of Wheat.
(click on any image to enlarge)

   And I had to do this simple one, only because this is California for ya'! Everything is a fad here in California, and if just one celebrity does it,.............everyone gets on the band wagon. Anyway, I do understand there are people that really are allergic to wheat gluten, but I do know so many people cut it out of their diets, for weight loss and the newest fad!!! 
I've even seen this on the labels of shampoo bottles. Crazy!!
   Thank you to all who left messages last week, and all of your well wishes for my Dad!! He is doing well and nothing's gonna keep him down. (New technology in medicine is simply amazing!)
Thank you for keeping a smile on my face, all week! Your messages are always taken to heart! I know how much time it takes to put into blogging! (((((Hugs)))) to all!!

Wow Annette, your THX piece is awesome. I like how you did the yellow Trio as a ribbon through the side of the drawing, looks really cool. Your style is very elegant, always like to come to your blog to see what you came up with for the challenge.

Of course I read your last comment, I read all your comments. And, duh, of course great minds think alike :) I wrote you a response on my blog about doing (or not doing) the CZT.

I adore your zias, also love the nod to the Veterans, they deserve so much more for giving all. I also love the wheat inchie. Even the gluten free one :p Hoping to post mine tomorrow.

This tile is very beautiful and a great tribute to heroes.

Suzanne Fluhr said...

Having already tried the Diva's challenge, I realize how special your tile is. I think I prefer or with the pop of color.

This is a beautiful tile Annette. I too like the ribbon effect.

This was so clever...the first pix is great and my fave of your work is the xyp! The wheat? unbelievable to do that work in such a small space...wow!
