merry christmas 26

Mona Pendleton | Friday, September 15, 2017 @ 7:15 AM | ,

Happy Friday! Today I have a few projects to share. First up is a Christmas card featuring a little button snowman:
I stamped the cute snowman from the PTI Holiday Button Bits stamp set then stitched on his button body :) 
I'm entering my card in the following card challenges: 
For theme inspiration, the Merry Monday challenge where the theme is Holiday Movie List ~ Frosty the Snowman is my inspiration:
 For color inspiration: Color Throwdown:
For sketch inspiration: the Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge:
Up next is an 8" x 8" oil painting featuring a floral archway:
I was inspired by this poolside archway that I took while on our summer vacation:
I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday and 30 in 30 Day 15 sites:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
