yellow blossoms 31

Mona Pendleton | Friday, August 12, 2016 @ 4:47 AM |

Hi there! Today I have a couple of very different projects to share. First up is a card that I made for my dear sister who completed 14 days of full brain radiation. She's so brave! The plan of treatment for her, is to allow her body to recover from the radiation then start 4 cycles of chemotherapy every 2-3 weeks depending on how she tolerates it and if she wants to continue. 

When I moved over a year ago, I really overhauled my crafting supplies including most of my patterned paper stash so I stamped my own using PTI stamps. The layered jar, the die cut flowers and sentiment are from a variety of PTI stamps and dies:
Next up is a 12" x 12" canvas board featuring a trio of yellow roses:
I probably overworked the roses and got a little carried away by adding too many leaves but I sure did have fun! :)


 For color inspiration, I joined along with this week's Color Throwdown color challenge

for the card sketch inspiration, I joined along with this week's Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge:

and I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday link up:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
