thinking of you 39

Hi! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I'm joining along with the June PTI Blog Hop where the challenge is to create a project based on the inspiration photo shown below:
 I'm always in need of cards to send to my dear sister as she continues to battle metastatic breast cancer which has spread to her brain. Thank you to my dear blogging friends for your prayers, kind thoughts and words. 
I combined a couple of my favorite PTI stamps sets to create this card. The mini jar is from the PTI Friendship Jar Summer Fillers and the blossoms are from the PTI Twig Wreath stamp set:
 I was also inspired to paint the jar of flowers on a 8" x 8" canvas using oil paints:
For card sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the current Fusion Card Challenge:
and I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday site:
Many thanks for stoppig by ~ happy hopping!

Hi there! It's been awhile~I'm still here just not posting on my blog. I needed a birthday card for a dear friend so I decided to join along with this week's PTI Make It Mondays challenge where the challenge is to create a Pantone chip inspired card.
For the focal point, I stamped one of the pretty flowers from the PTI Vintage Linens stamp set:
Here's the pantone paint chip that I used to create one of the layered rectangles:
For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with this week's CAS(E) sketch challenge:
I've been practicing painting landscapes lately and have a few to share. The first one up was inspired by a lesson offered by Julie Gilbert Pollard: 
The next two paintings were inspired by lessons offered by Bill Inman:

I'm linking my paintings to the current Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
