 Happy Friday! Any fun weekend plans? Today I'm joining along with this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a project Mixing Floral stamp sets.
I stamped the background using a combination of floral images from the PTI Bloomin' Cute and the Beautiful Bloom stamp sets:
 Once I had the background stamped and die to to size, I embellished with stamped/die cut leaves and a decorative sprig from the Bloomin' Cute stamp set along with a die cut layered blossom on top:

Up next, is a small 8" x 8 "oil painting featuring a couple of hibiscus:

Merry Christmas 20

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, September 20, 2017 @ 6:23 AM | ,


Hi! Today I'm joining along with the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge where the challenge is to create a card featuring a decorated tag using texture, bling and die cuts.
 Here's my take on the challenge:
For texture, I dry embossed a piece of watercolor paper, spritzed on Ranger Meadow Distress Ink, followed with spritzed water. Once dry, I randomly stamped and heat embossed some fun polka dots. I embellished the die cut tag with a die cut snowflake, die cut leaves and a sentiment strip then randomly adhered some bling:
Up next is a 9" x 12" piece of canvas paper that I have been practicing painting impressionistic style roses on using oil paints:

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)

Hi! Today I have a few projects to share. Up first, is a rather clean and simple thank you card that I made for a dear friend. I'm playing along with the Lift Challenge where the challenge is to create a text with alphabet dies or chipboard and partially create a pattern / image with stamps.
I die cut the letters x 2 using dies from my stash, randomly stamped floral images from various PTI stamp sets, adhered the layers together then adhered them to the card from. So simple! I'm looking forward to repeating this technique.
For color inspiration, I'm joining along with the Sunday Stamps challenge where You must use a minimum of 3 colors from the graphic below, plus you may also use a neutral of your choice. 
Up next is an 8" x 10" oil painting featuring a fall pear:

Autumn wishes 24

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 16, 2017 @ 1:36 AM | ,

Hi there! Today I have a couple projects to share but before I get those I wanted to thank all of you who have asked about my sweet sister Marlene. I'm sad to share that Marlene has lost her fight against breast / brain cancer and is no longer suffering. I'm very grateful for your thoughts and prayers.  

Shown below is a photo of Marlene and my dear niece Renee, Marlene's daughter that was taken last summer shortly after Marlene had received the terminal diagnosis that the cancer had metastasized to her brain.
Up first is a card that I made for my dear niece Renee, Marlene's daughter. Renee is 28 years young which is way too young to lose her Mom. Renee is a First Lieutenant currently serving in the U.S. Army as a Registered Nurse. My heart aches for her, her brother and my BIL. 
I combined a couple of stamp sets from PTI. The pumpkins were stamped using a deep orange ink but I think the images appear more red than orange in the photographs.
For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the Fab Friday challenge:
Up next is an 8" x 10" still life oil painting:
I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday and 30 in 30 Day 16 sites:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
