Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! My son Jerry and my DIL April live in San Francisco so when PTI introduced their Cable Gram set, I knew I had to have it! Today, April is celebrating her birthday so I made her a birthday card as well as a set of cards for her to send cheer to her friends and family :)
I joined along with the current PTI Make it Monday challenge where the theme is to create a project featuring Confetti Garlands. 
I die cut LOTS of confetti and strung it across the cable car:
April's favorite color combo is lavender, yellow and aqua:
Here's the set I'm sending April along with hers:
For color inspiration for three of them, I joined along with current ColourQ color challenge:
and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current CTS sketch challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!

Art 24

Hi there! Are you ready for the weekend? Since Phoenix is hosting the Super Bowl there are so many festivities going on around town. I don't really have a passion for watching football but I sure enjoy the commercials :) How about you? Are you a football fan?
Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo of my dear daughter Angie that was taken by one of her classmates during her welding class:
Angie is an amazing artist and sells her artwork. The horse head shown below is a piece of art she made in her welding class of reclaimed / recycled metal pieces that she hand picked from a metal scrap yard. She rents space in a local vintage marketplace where she sells her art as well as vintage furniture, treasures and trinkets. This piece sold before she even had a chance to put a price tag on it! I'm so proud of her to say the least :)
To create this layout, I started with fun papers from the 7 Dots Studio Domestic Goddess collection. The edges were distressed, layered then adhered to the main background piece. I added texture using a Prima stencil along with Prima Modeling Paste. Once dry, randomly I applied various color of inks:
I embellished with a couple of Prima metal flowers / trinkets and chipboard gears which I painted to give a rusty appearance:
I added Prima glass beads and Prima glitter for a touch of shimmer and shine:

I joined along with the following challenges:
Finnabair's Sparkle and Shine Blog Hop / Challenge:
 For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Sketches In Thyme sketch challenge:
and for color inspiration, I joined along with ScrapMagic challenge using blue and dark orange along with glass beads for the Mandatory item:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
