Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! Today I'm joining along with PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a project featuring Window Chipboard Sentiments. I created a card for my sweet sister Tina thanking her for taking care of my dogs while I was away this weekend on a hiking trip.
I combined pretty flowers from the PTI Vintage Linens set with the thanks sentiment from the PTI Wet Paint Cuts die collection:
For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge:
This past weekend, I went on a three night, two day backpacking trip with two of my girlfriends:
We hiked 8 miles down the Havasu Canyon which is located on the Havasuapi Indian Reservation. Havasupai is roughly translated as “The people of the blue-green waters,” which refers to the beautiful turquoise color of Havasu Creek. ... These minerals saturate the water and reflect sunlight, making the water a turquoise color. I won't bore you with all the photos we took but I did want to share a few! There's only three ways down: hiking, horseback riding or a helicopter ride:



Once down the canyon upon approaching the remote Indian Village, the turquoise colored Havasu Creek runs:
 After we checked in to the lodge and dropped off our belongings, we continued our adventure down the canyon to explore some of the beautiful waters and waterfalls:


Shown below is the spectacular Havasupai Falls from above:

and here's what it looks like from the base of the falls. We swam in the water which was incredibly cold!!!
We also hiked to Mooney Falls. 
I saw it from above peeking out from the cave but I was not brave enough to climb down the canyon wall to the base. Here's why:
My girlfriend Jackie was the brave one and shared this photo with us :)
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Irises 19

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, March 11, 2017 @ 6:32 PM | ,

Hi! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have a couple of oil painted Irises to share that I painted on an 8" x 8" canvas panel inspired by Nancy Medina:
Lovin' all the vibrant transparent colors in the underpainting but I'm not thrilled with the colors of the Iris on the left. Practice, practice, practice...
I'm linking this painting to the current Paint Party Friday site where they are celebrating their 6th anniversary!

Hi! Today it's my turn to share a project on the Popppystamps blog featuring a variety of fabulous products from the Spring 2017 Release!
For the focal point, I featured a double layered pretty Scribble Flower Circle. I love all the pretty little flowers as they are the perfect place holders for tiny pearls. For the sentiment I used the Scribble Hello die and finished with Pretty Stitches trimming:
I couldn't resist embellishing with a triple layered Stitched Butterfly:

a note to my dear friend 22

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, March 5, 2017 @ 1:00 AM | , ,

Hi Everyone! Today I'm featuring this card on the Poppystamps blog. If you have a chance, please stop by! I'm sharing this card featuring  fun dies from the New Mini Release including the Atessa Collage and Stitched Butterfly Trio dies.
I created a clean and simple card. For the background, I used the Atessa Collage die to cut a piece of white cardstock then layered it on top of a piece of green cardstock:
I stamped one of the many sentiments from the Friends and Flowers stamp set then embellished with a layered stitched butterfly that was die cut using a couple different sized Stitched Butterfly Trio dies:
For color inspiration, I'm joining along with the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge:
I've been painting Garden Roses inspired by Daniel Edmondson. I have three different versions:


I'm linking one of my paintings to the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have enjoyed my project and please be sure to stop by the Poppystamps blog.
