I'm here for YOU 29

Mona Pendleton | Monday, May 8, 2017 @ 7:38 PM | ,

Hi! Today I'm joining along with the PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is: background stamping using a sentiment. 
I made two of the same cards using two different sentiments from the PTI Round and Round stamp set. The first one is for my dear sister Marlene who is always in my thoughts and prayers:
The second card is for my sweet step daughter Meredith who will be turning 20 next week:
Both feature a double layered PTI Life Is Beautiful butterfly:
Up next is an 8" x 10" oil painting inspired by Daniel Edmondson:
For card sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the MOJO Monday challenge:
as well as the Curtain Call Inspiration challenge: where the theme is Flutter:
I'm linking my painting to this week's Paint Party Friday site:
Many thanks for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)

Gorgeous color combo & wonderful use of the sketch, Mona! The double butterfly with the pearl embellishment is stunning! Love seeing that the technique works so well with small sentiment stamps--more of what I have. Thanks for the inspiration! Your painting has so much interest & the colors are beautiful! You're a talented painter!

Your cards are so pretty and so thoughtful. I really do love that butterfly die with its double layer. Your painting is wonderful, too. Your flowers remind me a little of the Sweet Williams that grow in my flower beds.

Beautiful cards Mona - you are the Queen of crisp, clean and elegant. Love the pearl centre on the double butterfly. Your painting reminds me of some flowers that used to grow in my Mother's cottage garden. Gorgeous!
