Happy Birthday 37

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, January 31, 2015 @ 1:40 PM | ,

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!
Be Sweet ;)

Art 32

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!

Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge you are encouraged to wander up in the air for your inspiration.
I was inspired to create a cloud like background on my layout:
I scrapped a photo that was taken while hiking the Swiss Alps. For a backdrop, I attempted to create a fluffy cloud like appearance using Texture Paste:
For a splash of color, Stormy Sky and Brushed Pewter Distress Stain Sprays were randomly added:
Chit Chat stickers were used to spell out my journaling:


I embellished with home made flowers including a Tattered Floral along with a Mini Clock:

An Enameled Tag with a Botanical Remnant Rub makes for a great embellishment:
Here's a photo of a few of the products I used:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you join along with theSimon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see all the DT's fabulous inspiration!
