Weekly Challenge #384

First of all, to all of us who are trying to make it through this Polar Vortex, i hope you're all well stocked in hot cocoa, or mulled wines, warm fuzzy socks, scarves, slippers, cozy sweaters, and hand made afghans!!



But the good news is that january is behind us.
am i right?
 And it's now February and according to all the groundhogs in their various places, it looks like early spring??? YEah, i'll believe that when i see it.  I spent half an hour shovelling over a foot of snow off my sidewalks and walkway on Saturday morning, only to come home from my my errands to find B-rad was shovelling again... because snow!  i mean.... ugh.

And so the first week of the month means:

Weekly Challenge #384: "UMT - Anthem by Jody Genovese, CZT"

This month's Use My Tangle challenge features the tangle Anthem by Jody Genovese.    

The first Monday of each month is a Use My Tangle challenge where the tangle we use is brought to us by ONE of YOU!! You don't have to be a CZT to submit, but they do have to follow the guidelines etc found here...

This month's tangle is brought to you via Jody's instagram feed!  i was scrolling through my feed and up popped her tangle  - and i fell in love with it because i love crystals - and i just couldn't wait to get playing with it, and i thought you might too!

 So fun!

I hope you enjoy it as much as i did.

here's my tile this week!

this week's challenge is to try out Jody's new tangle.  You don't have to do a monotangle, i just happened to.

have a great week.

OH HEY - if you're on instagram, i've been having fun the last couple of weeks posting people's challenge tiles in my stories, so be sure to use the hashtag below if you want me to post yours too!

have a great week everyone!
And if you're on the Zentangle Mosaic App or Instagram - i'm @iamthediva - come on by and follow me, and i'm going to be using hashtags on the app for each of my weekly challenges. So if you're game - use the hashtag #DC384 (Diva Challenge #384) for your tile this week! You can also search in the app for people's contributions to the challenge by clicking on the hashtag from inside the app, or using the search function. 
If you have a blog or host your images on line (like on Flickr or Picassa or Pinterest), add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here) Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;) 
If you love the challenge as much as i do, please consider leaving a tip (tip jar in the side bar). I write this blog for free and have no plans to make it a paid for service in the future. Buy me a cup of coffee, or a new Micron pen!! Click the tip jar on the side for a monthly tip, but if you just wanna throw a few bucks my way THIS LINK will give you a one time option. A very big thank you to those who have kept me in hot cups of joe. ;)
