ART RINGS AND A GIVE-A-WAY!

Hello, family-friends!!!  Hope all is well!

Did you think I went awol again?!!!  LOL!  In case you were wondering, other than recovering from a virus hubby passed to me, all's well.  We believe Len picked up the virus while at the hospital for a doctor's appointment because he came down with the symptoms the very night of his appointment and I had it by the following night -- omg, it was a nasty one too. Of course, mine lasted a few days longer than his... lol!   Anyway, after struggling to tend to the other while recuperating, I've since had to disinfect everything, run several errands, and catch up on other household chores which I'd gotten behind on.  Most of you know I am a caregiver for my aunt so as I was behind both here -- and there -- I dove in to get it all done so now I can get back to crafting and blogging.  So, that was the cause of my delay.  The down-side is that I'm now behind here too, so time for me to get busy...

My share with you today are some rings I made.  I found these lear blank acrylic DIY art rings and decided I'd play around with them yesterday:

 
The pictures of these rings were so difficult to get; I don't know if it was the glitter paper on the holder or the lighting but I really had to re-take lots of shots to get decent pictures. They are so much prettier than the picture reflects.  Here're my rings:

Here's a close-up; hopefully, you can see them a bit better:

These were such fun to do and because I've quite a few of them, I'll be making more for family, friends, and sharing with you!!!  I'll be giving one of each size 6, 7, and 8 to you!!!  Right, 3 rings for you to play with! If you're interested all you need to do is leave the hyphenated words "word art" in your comment and on Thursday, March 29, using Random.com I'll select as winner.  How fun to see what you'd do with them!  (Giveaway is open to everyone).
 
Well I'm off to do more craft fun-stuff and some catching up, so hugs to you and...
 
I'll be seeing you!
