Merry Christmas 24

Mona Pendleton | Monday, October 30, 2017 @ 9:14 AM | ,

Hi there! Today I have the day off from work and before I rush out the door to the gym, I took some time to make another Christmas card. I'm joining along with the PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a card featuring Twine and Ribbon wraps. Here's my interpretation:
I wrapped a double layered twig wreath with twine and added a ribbon wrap bow to the embellished wreath. I used the following PTI stamp sets to create this card: Twig Wreath, Spruce & Sprigs, Beautiful Berries: Winter and Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers.
I'm also joining along with the Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge where I chose the middle horizontal row featuring: Christmas/ die-cut or punch/ wreath:

Merry Christmas 12

Hi there! Today I have two very similar Christmas projects to share; a tag and a card. Up first is the tag:
I was inspired to join along with the current Tag You're It! Challenge when I saw the challenge inspiration shown below:
Up next is a Christmas card:
The card also features a similar scene as the tag ~ two die-cut/ stamped Christmas trees from the PTI Joyful Christmas stamp set and a sweet die cut deer:
For card sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge: (I flipped the sketch counter clockwise).

Hi! October is breast cancer awareness month and it's never too late to schedule your mammogram! I'm joining along with the current CAS-UAL Fridays challenge to help spread the word!
 I made this pink card for my dear niece Renee:
 To create this card, I heat embossed a beautiful background stamp from Tim Holtz that I've had in my stash for a few years now and finally put to good use! Once dry, I applied a few different colors of Distress Inks, misted then dried. I embellished with a trio of Tim Holtz die cuts. I'm also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge where the theme is mononchrome:
 Using the same sketch, I created another CAS card using pretty stamped/die cut flowers from MFT:
 For color inspiration, I'm joining along with the current Color Throwdown color challenge:
Last but not least is another VERY CAS card:
All three cards sketch were made based on the inspiration from the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge:
Thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!

Hi there! Today I'm joining along with the PTI October Blog Hop:
where the challenge is to create a card/project based on the inspiration board shown below:
Here's my take:
I created a Christmas card featuring a multicolored Christmas tree from the Loves Live Here Holiday stamp set which I layered on top of a die cut snowflake. Topped it off with a glittery star and twine bow.
For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the current Global Design Project challenge:

Hi there! Today I'm joining along with the PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a card which features a glitter mat.
I combined a few of my original PTI stamps from years ago and stamped a polka dot gift box then topped with a silver heat embossed bow which is from the PTI Holiday Button Bits stamp set which I then matted on a silver glitter die cut mat:
Up next, is a 12" x 12" oil painting featuring an Asian vase and oranges:
I'm entering the card in the following challenges: The Merry Monday card challenge where the theme is "add a gift to your Christmas card":
for colour inspiration, the Sketch Saturday sketch challenge:
and for colour inspiration, the Just Add Ink challenge:
I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday site:

 Hi there! Today I have a mixed media style altered canvas to share featuring my sweet little girl Gretchen. 
 When I saw the theme for this week's  the Simon Says Stamps Monday challenge: It's A Dogs Life, I knew I had to join along in memory of my sweet girl who passed away this summer at the age of 11. Gretchen was my little fur baby who was always at my feet.
I added lots of texture to the background using a stencil and texture paste:
And embellished the canvas with a variety of metal trinkets and plastic baubles from my stash:

I'm also sharing my canvas with this week's Paint Party Friday site as well as the Altered Eclectics site:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
