sending Christmas cheer 31

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, December 21, 2016 @ 9:08 AM | , , ,


Hi! Today I today I have a couple of very personalized Christmas cards to share. I was inspired to join along with this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge where Ashley is challenging us to create Holiday Photo Cards. The first one up is for my dear sister Tina which features my sweet dog Griffin all dressed up for Christmas:

 and this one is for my dear husband Scott which features a photo of Meredith and Connor that was taken about 15 years ago ;)
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Sunday Stamps challenge:
as well as the Merry Monday Christmas challenge where the theme is Holiday Cheer:
Up next is a mixed media style painting on a 12" x 12" canvas panel featuring lots of texture and a trio of gerbera daisies inspired by Nancy Medina:

I'm linking my painting to this week's Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)

I love the tailored look of your cards, and the personal photos make them so special. Your Gerbera daisies are gorgeous. I actually have a Gerbera daisy plant blooming in my spare room as I write this. I dug it out of my front flower bed in November and brought it inside for the winter. It was so happy to be inside, it promptly bloomed! It now has two beautiful blossoms and another one forming - a real bright spot on a cold, snowy winter day. :)
