birthday wishes 42

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, January 31, 2017 @ 5:53 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Today I have a few projects to share. I'm joining along with this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge where Lexi is challenging us to create a project using pattern play with die cut silhouettes. I made two similar cards featuring the beautiful PTI Life is Beautiful butterfly die along with fun papers from the Twig Wreath paper collection. The first card up is for my dear DIL April who is celebrating her 28th birthday today:

The next one is for my dear sister Marlene:

For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with this week's Sketch Saturday challenge:
I've also been practicing painting Gary Jenkins style roses. This is oil on an 8" x 8" canvas panel:

I'm linking my painting to Paint Party Friday and 30 in 30 day 30:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)
