Thank You 23

Thank You!

Hi Cyber Girl Friends :) Thank you all for your support with my blog & for taking the time to post such kind words. :) Lately, many of you have commented on the photographs of my cards. I just wanted to let you know that I can't take all the credit! My hubbie surprised me with an early birthday present a few weeks ago, the light tent that "we" take the photographs in. I set up the tent, lights and the items to be photographed, then Mr. Techy works his magic! :) You really can't mess up a photo with this "magic" tent! :) TGIF! I have really been anxiously awaiting today for quite sometime now. Tomorrow just my DH & I are going to Maui for 10 days! :) We are celebrating my 41st Birthday & our 5th year Wedding Anniversary. We met at work 10 years ago, dated for 5 & have been married the other 5. Not many people can work with their spouse, nor would they want to. We really enjoy it! :) Due to the fact that I will have quite limited luggage space, I will only be able to take a few of my favorite scrappin' things. Color challenges will probably be out of the question but not sketch challenges! :) When I go on vacation, my sister, Tina doggie sits my 2 Westie babies and my home. I made this card thanking her for all that she does for us. The crocheted fleurettes on this card were hand crocheted by Tina following the tutorial found on Nichole Heady's blog. My color inspiration came from the Color Throwdown #48 challenge (I do not have SU Baja Breeze so I substituted with Bazzill Whirlpool) & my layout inspiration came from the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge #234, SC234. There are some really amazing creations on all the blogs I have mentioned, so if you get a chance, take a peak at all of them! :) I was inspired by Danni at dannisdoodles.typepad.com to make "her" butterfly. That girl is very creative

& talented! I modified it a tad by using a different punch & by giving it a "vintage" look! :) Thanks for looking at my creations. :) Please feel free to leave a comment! I really enjoy hearing from you! :) Be Sweet! Until next time...

Ingredients Used:

Paper: SU Kraft, Very Vanilla, Pink Pirouette, Bazzill Whirlpool, K&Company DP

Ink: SU Chocolate Chip

Stamps: SU Warmest Regards, Priceless

Sprinkles: Tina's hand crocheted fleurettes, Cuttlebug Butterflies die & Swiss Dots EF, EK Success flower punch, Fiskars punch, Jo-Ann Craft Essentials button & brads, generic twine, SU distressing tool

Excellent addition to your design collection, Mona! This card oozes feminine sweetness! The butterfly is so creative. I really love the Priceless stampset as well. Great choices on everything!

LeAnne said...

Wow, what a beautiful creation. I just have to ask, how big is your light tent? I just got one (backordered from Christmas) and it is HUGE...like 36" square, much bigger than I think I need. Yours looks like it may be even bigger! Anyway, thanks for playing and enjoy your vacation!

Danni might be talented but from the looks of your blog you are uber-talented! Another beautiful creation, Mona!

Have fun on vacation! I love your butterfly. What light tent did you purchase? Do you have an online link. I think it would help me take better pictures of my projects.
thanks!

Great butterfly! You need to do a video on this one!

Susan Mast said...

All the layers and dimension on this card is amazing! Love it!!!

Mona L. Pendleton said...

Aloha Girls! I am glad you girls like my card :) This butterfly looks a bit complicated to make but is super easy & gives your card a nice look. Chris suggested a video & I think as long as I give credit, as I always do, to the original creator, it should be ok. When I return from vacation, I will work on that so if any of you are interested, keep a look out for that little creature! :) Mahalo (Thank You) Mona
