Hi all

Well the Easter weekend and our 4 day holiday went by in a blur of sand, sea and sun as we spent 4 days in Durban at the SA NIpper Championships-23 Lifesaving CLubs from around the coast and 650 nippers all converged on the beach. Both gannets did very well with the youngest ending 5th flags, and the eldest coming 10th in the malibu final and 14th in the iron nipper! Very proud parents.

I didn't manage to do much drawing while we were away as we had to be at the beach at 7:15am and then only left at 5:30pm before heading off to the daily prizegiving and dinner! Last weeks challenge also got the better of me, as it was back to school here in SA and everything started off at a run! I'm particularly annoyed with this because I liked the challenge last week! Sooooo...I sat in the lounge last night (quite something for me at the moment) and tangled this weeks challenge - "You with stars in your eyes" - , AND I finished it!

Challenge 114! Tangles used are inapod, shattuck, indy-rella mixed with joy by Sandy Hunter

Happy creating


  1. You made this challenge a beautiful one! I love it.

  2. Beautiful how your tangles softened the angularity of the star. Lovely!

  3. Like your star. Shattuck is one of my favorite tgangles. I also like the combination of Joy and Indy-rella. I have used that in some pieces and I always like the way that it turns out.

  4. Beautiful. I love the indy-rella stars. They give your drawing a lot of movement

  5. Your indy rella stars are wonderful
