so thankful...PTI Blog Hop 15

 Hi there! Today I'm joining along with the PTI August Blog Hop where the challenge is to create a project based on the pretty inspiration photo shown below:
I was inspired by the subtle colors of pink, orange and rust. While I had the supplies out, I made two cards rather than one featuring the pretty PTI Twig Wreath stamp set:

Orange Ranunculus and Daisies 13

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, August 23, 2016 @ 10:17 PM | , ,

Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! Today I have a 24" x 24" painting to share with you that I was inspired by Nancy Medina's Orange Ranunculus and Daisies video tutorial and a lot of encouragement from my sweet husband. All this painting takes a lot of practice but my dear husband's patience is wearing thin because I keep telling him "I'm just practicing" but he's ready to see some art work hung around the house ;) LOL  ***Please keep in mind, this style of painting is impressionistic not realistic***







Here's my first attempt. I had painted the transparent underpainting and had worked on the vase which was quite large and lopsided. 
With a little effort and a lot of turpenoid, I removed the entire painting and was left with the semi stained canvas shown below:
I'm linking my painting to the current Paint Party Friday post:

Hi there! Hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have several cards to share featuring a combination of PTI stamp sets along with a variety of MFT dies. While I had the stamps and dies out on my desk, I decided to make three very similar rather clean and simple cards that just need a single postage stamp and on their way they go! I dread going to the post office to have cards weighed. The first one up is for my dear daughter (in law) April who began her student teaching this past week:

next one up is for a dear friend who is so thoughtful and I'm so grateful that she's my friend:
and this one is for my sweet sister Marlene who is always in my thoughts and prayers:

SENDING Hugs 25

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, August 18, 2016 @ 7:00 AM |

Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! I was in need of a few cards, one for my sweet sister and one for a dear friend. I combined a couple of PTI stamp sets including Big Hugs and Bloomin' Cute to create the two rather clean and simple cards shown below:

I'm joining along with the PTI August create Along With Us challenge where we are challenged to create something based on a PTI DT members project that was shown during the new release:
I was inspired by the darling clean and simple card made by PTI DT member Melissa Phillips:
For color inspiration, I joined along with the current Color Throwdown color challenge:
