The diva's challenge #197 is presented by Laura Harms...she is back in the saddle again, welcome back! Glad your little guy is feeling better. The challenge this week is a new tangle by Molly Hollibaugh and it is called ARUKAS (which btw is Sakura spelled backwards).

Also I am showing a stentangle creation below by a facebook friend, Lilian. She was kind enough to share a story. Here in her own words is how she discovered stencils and "zentangle" and what she is doing to enrich others lives.
My name is Lilian Soegaard Wogensen, I live in Denmark and am 65 y.o.
I was first introduced to Zentanglec ca. 3 month ago, and since I have been tangling tangling....
I had to own "all " zentangle books and while reading I got to know about Dreamweawer's stencils..
They were hard to find in Denmark, but I finally found Stampman in UK, and now I own 8 stencils and want more more....
I make cards and pictures with them in my own style... I never had made cards before....now I think cards/zentangle day and night !!!
There is a little story about the use of the umbrella stencil :
I am a socialworker in a creative shop under a social institution called the Umbrella..
therefor I make cards with the umbrella stencil as a motiv in different designs, and sell them in the shop, and the money is used for helping people back to life again...
Thank you Lilian for sharing...it sounds like such a worthy cause and I am glad you found something that helps others AND you can also enjoy zen at the same time. Wishing you the best with your cardmaking endeavors! Click HERE to see her umbrella creations.
Here is a card that Lilian made with the apron stencil:
