Joy 30

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 9, 2017 @ 10:41 AM | , , ,

Hi there! Today I'm here to share a few of my crafting projects. First up is my first Christmas card for 2017! Time flies so I thought I would try to get ahead.
I'm joining along with this week's PTI Make It Monday Challenge where the challenge is to create a project featuring Small Images on Repeat. I stamped and embossed x 3 a pretty snowflake from Snowflake Serenade:
I combined it with a sentiment from Signature Christmas:
For theme inspiration, I'm joining along with this week's Merry Monday card challenge where the theme is JOY:
and for color inspiration, I'm joining along with this week's Color Throwdown challenge:
Up next is an 8" x 8" oil painting inspired by Daniel Edmondson featuring Oranges and Blossoms:
I'm linking my painting to both the Paint Party Friday and the 30 in 30 (Day 9) sites.
Thanks so much for stopping by~hope you have a safe weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
