Dream 18

Hi! Today I have an over sized greeting card to share featuring the beautiful Julie Nutting "Gina" girl stamp. I love her sweet elegant style which compliments the products included in the beautiful Vintage Emporium collection.
I stamped Gina on various patterned papers from the Vintage Emporium collection then carefully trimmed around the stamp "body" and clothing so I could give her a paper pieced outfit. I surrounded her with lots of pretty flowers from the Vintage Emporium collection as well as die cut foliage:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi there! It's time for the May Prima Product Pick challenge and this month we are challenging all you Prima fans to create a project using the beautiful color combination shown below:
I was inspired to create a layout featuring a photo of my sweet dogs surrounded by a variety of fun and cheerful, beautiful blossoms: 
I love the versatility of Prima products and how easy it is to mix and match products from many collections, as I have done to create this layout.

Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have enjoyed my layout and are inspired to join along! Please be sure to stop by the Prima blog and see the awesome DT inspiration!

a vase of pink roses 24

Mona Pendleton | Monday, May 2, 2016 @ 10:33 PM | , ,

Hi! The past week has been a little hectic around here. Scott and I took a trip to San Francisco to visit my dear son Jerry and sweet DIL April. While we were there, we walked around the beautiful San Francisco Botanical Gardens and Rose Garden which are located in the Golden Gate Park. I went a little photo crazy taking LOTS of inspiration photos to add to my "to paint" library ;) Here are just a few photos from the rose garden and a couple from the Botanical Gardens:
sweet Scott :)
a few beautiful roses:

my favorite cactus in the Botanical Gardens:

Next I have a 12" x 12" painting to share that I painted for my dear friend Heather which was inspired by Gary Jenkins:
Here's a couple step shots that I took along the way:

and here are some close ups of the pink roses:

I'm linking this painting to Paint Party Friday:
Thanks so much for stopping by!

live in the moment 19

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, May 1, 2016 @ 9:00 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there! It's time for a new More Than Words Challenge! This month's challenge is all about:
Word: Moment
Creative Challenge: Clocks
Here are a few close ups of my canvas:
Here's my interpretation of the challenge: 
I used the word MOMENT in the sentiment 'Live in the moment'. The creative challenge inspired me to create a steampunk style canvas featuring a variety of CLOCKS and cogs:

I'm liking this to the Paint Party Friday link up:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the More Than Words Challenge blog to see what the entire design team has created and for complete details on how to join along in the fun!
Be Sweet ;)
