Hello there 22

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, May 15, 2018 @ 6:32 AM | , , ,

Hi! Today I'm joining along with the PTI May: Create Along With Us challenge which allows anyone to select something that a PTI team member has created during the release that inspired you, and create your own version. I was inspired by Heather's fun card show below:
Here's my interpretation:
I combined several stamp sets to create my card including PTI Gran's Garden, PTI Background Basics: Newsprint, PTI Turning a New Leaf, etc... 
For card sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the FabFriday challenge:
I also have a 16" x 20" oil painting featuring a garden of peonies inspired by Bill Inman:
I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday site:

Ain't No Sunshine...Guest Designing 14

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, May 10, 2018 @ 4:00 PM | ,

Hi! Today I have the honor of guest designing with the talented design team at A Vintage Journey. The May challenge theme is all about Words and Music. If you'd like to join along, you are asked to that are inspired by a favourite song, or that incorporate musical lyrics, sheet music, or musical signs and symbols in their design.

I created a shabby style card featuring sheet music along with a stamped sentiment that reminds me of Bill Withers song: "Ain't no sunshine when she's gone":
For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Please be sure to visit the A Vintage Journey blog to see ALL the fantastic projects that the talented DT has created as well as a step by step tutorial that I share on how I created my project!

Congratulations 18

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, May 2, 2018 @ 1:15 AM | , ,

Hi there! Today I'm joining along with the PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a project featuring Ink Blending on Colored Cardstock. I made a card for sweet daughter Angie who will be graduating from college this week.
I randomly stamped, heat embossed then blended coordinating ink around the butterflies to create the background. For the focal point, I stamped then heat embossed the larger embossed butterfly from the What The Doodle: Mini Butterfly stamp set as well.
In case you missed my post (HERE), Angie is currently a member of the US Cycling team. Several weeks ago, she traveled to Hiroshima, Japan and placed second on the podium (far left):
This past week, Angie traveled to Sydney, Australia where she placed second ago:
Here's Angie defying gravity in Australia!
I'm joining along with the additional following challenges: for sketch inspiration, the Just Add Ink challenge:

Happy Birthday 23

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, March 27, 2018 @ 12:58 AM | ,

Hi! I'm joining along with the PTI Make it Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a project featuring stenciled edges. Today we're celebrating my sweet daughter Angie's 28th birthday so this card is for her which features a couple of butterflies and a sentiment from the PTI Butterfly Dreams stamp set complete with stenciled edges using a honeycomb stencil:
I'm so proud of Angie who will be graduating from the university in May. Angie has been competing on the international circuit for many years. During the 2017 season, Angie qualified 3rd at the world competition in China which has earned her a place on the US Cycling Freestyle Biking team. One of her biking goals is to qualify for the 2020 Olympics representing Team USA in Tokyo. If you'd like to see more of Angie, please feel free to visit her FB page here: https://www.facebook.com/angiemarinobmx/ :)
