Think Pink 25

Mona Pendleton | Friday, October 2, 2015 @ 6:48 AM | , , , , ,

Hi there! October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Prima click HERE is going PINK, along with millions of others, to help spread the word! Sharon asked me if I'd like to share anything personal regarding breast cancer, here's my response: I think many of us have known or knows someone who is battling breast cancer. Breast cancer or any cancer for that matter does not discriminate. As a RN, I have worked in the Oncology Unit for several years witnessing first hand the toll cancer takes on people's lives. I've lost a couple of girlfriends to breast cancer and have many that are survivors. Working as a RN in the Operating Room for the past 17 years, I've taken care of both male and female patients dealing with breast cancer as young as 18 years old. Needless to say, breast cancer has touched my life in so many ways, how about you?
I love the color pink and in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness month,I created a couple of cards. The first one up features a die cut pink bra surrounded with a variety of pink flowers:
The backgrounds were created with shades of pretty pink art ingredients and Color Bloom Sprays:

The second card was made using many of the same Prima products with the exception of the fun stencil that was used to create the textured background:
Lots of fun layers:
I'm entering the second card in the paper players sketch challenge as well as the current Words 2 Scrap By where the theme is Fight Like A Girl in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Happy fall 32

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, September 27, 2015 @ 4:15 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have a couple of projects to share. First up is a 16" x 20" canvas that I painted. I'm practicing so I can paint a couple of 24" x 36" canvas's for my home. 
 To begin, I collaged pages from an old Webster's dictionary onto the canvas:
 then I had a lot of fun painting the background and poppies:
I also made a card in celebration of fall featuring a PTI Friendship Jar full of Fall goodness:
For color inspiration for both projects, I joined along with the current Colour Me challenge:
For card sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great week!

Happy Harvest 35

Mona Pendleton | Friday, September 25, 2015 @ 7:35 PM | ,

Hi there! Tonight I'm joining along with the PTI Blog Hop
which is based on the photo inspiration shown below as well as creating a project using the chalkboard technique. 
Here's my interpretation:
I created a card featuring a combination of stamps from the Fall Elegance and Spooky Sweet 11 stamp sets:
 Even though the temps are in still in the 100's here in Arizona, I'm starting to decorate my home for Fall. Here is a my front door showing a couple of wreaths that my daughter and I made along with my sweet girl, Gretchen ;)
 For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting. I hope you have a great weekend!
