 Hi there! Today I have a mixed media style altered canvas to share featuring my sweet little girl Gretchen. 
 When I saw the theme for this week's  the Simon Says Stamps Monday challenge: It's A Dogs Life, I knew I had to join along in memory of my sweet girl who passed away this summer at the age of 11. Gretchen was my little fur baby who was always at my feet.
I added lots of texture to the background using a stencil and texture paste:
And embellished the canvas with a variety of metal trinkets and plastic baubles from my stash:

I'm also sharing my canvas with this week's Paint Party Friday site as well as the Altered Eclectics site:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

Happy Halloween 17

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, October 15, 2017 @ 11:44 PM | ,

 Hi! Today I have a couple of fun Halloween cards to share featuring a variety of stamps from the PTI Friendship Jar Fall Fillers and Friendship Jar Summer Fillers. I'm not sure how old these sets are but they remain some of my favorites!
 I'm not a big Halloween fan but I thought these were cute enough to send some fun Halloween cheer ;)
I pulled out my Copic markers to color the pumpkins shown below and boy, do they seem to glow more like tomatoes than pumpkins in the photo! :) LOL

I'm joining along with the following challenges. For color inspiration: Color Throwdown:
For sketch inspiration: CAS(E) this Sketch!:
and for my second card, Just Add Ink ~ Just Choose Two (I chose colouring and sequins):
I hope you have a great week ~ Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi there! Today I have a few Christmas projects to share featuring die cut deer from the Tim Holtz Winter Wonderland die set. First up, is a rather clean and simple card featuring two of the smaller deer and the snowy die cut background:
I embellished with a die cut snowflake and stamped a sentiment from a PTI stamp set:
For sketch inspiration ~  Fusion Card Challenge:
Up next is a mixed media style Christmas tag featuring the largest die cut deer from the die set:
I used a combination of Sprays to create the blueish / green background then adhered the die cut forest which I had applied Distress Ink followed with a coat of Distress Glitter for an extra touch of shimmer and shine:
I'm entering the tag in the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge where the challenge is to create anything but a card.

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!

Autumn wishes 17

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, October 8, 2017 @ 5:53 PM | ,

Hi there! Today I have a couple of autumn cards to share. The first one up is a mixed media style card featuring a variety of products including, paints, texture paste, a stencil, stamps, inks and paints. I'm joining along with the Stamps and Stencils challenge where the theme is Autumn and one must use stamps and stencils to create their project.
I created the multilayered background using texture paste along with a stencil. Once dry, I applied various layers of inks including: Ranger Distress Inks and Prima Color Bloom spray. Once dry, I randomly stamped / heat embossed some additional details using a Prima stamp from my stash:
I embellished with a sweet owl, die cute corrugated cardboard leaves, stamped / die cut foliage, a die cut doily and some flowers from my stash: 
Up next, is a clean and layered autumn style card featuring a corrugated die cut leaf:
I'm joining along with The Card Concept card challenge with this card where the challenge is to create a card inspired by the beautiful graphic shown below. Lovin' the neutral color palette!
For sketch inspiration for both cards, I'm joining along with the Just Add Ink challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great week!
