I'm here for YOU 29

Mona Pendleton | Monday, May 8, 2017 @ 7:38 PM | ,

Hi! Today I'm joining along with the PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is: background stamping using a sentiment. 
I made two of the same cards using two different sentiments from the PTI Round and Round stamp set. The first one is for my dear sister Marlene who is always in my thoughts and prayers:
The second card is for my sweet step daughter Meredith who will be turning 20 next week:
Both feature a double layered PTI Life Is Beautiful butterfly:
Up next is an 8" x 10" oil painting inspired by Daniel Edmondson:
For card sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the MOJO Monday challenge:
as well as the Curtain Call Inspiration challenge: where the theme is Flutter:

thank you 16

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, April 26, 2017 @ 1:00 AM |

Hi there! It's Mona here today with a thank you card to share featuring a variety of Poppystamps products. I'm also sharing on the Poppystamps blog so if you have a chance, please feel free to stop and say hi HERE :)
My card features a fun butterfly shaped shaker. To create this card, I used one of the Stitched Butterfly Trio die to cut a butterfly window on a memory box Stitched Rectangle Layer. I filled the shaker with sequins then layered with another Stitched Rectangle Layer. I added a Pretty Stitches border.
The fun background was created using the Heart Pattern Plate and the sentiment is from the Hope and Thanks stamp set.

For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the Sketch Saturday challenge:
