thanks and fall pear 10

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, September 17, 2017 @ 2:58 PM | ,

Hi! Today I have a few projects to share. Up first, is a rather clean and simple thank you card that I made for a dear friend. I'm playing along with the Lift Challenge where the challenge is to create a text with alphabet dies or chipboard and partially create a pattern / image with stamps.
I die cut the letters x 2 using dies from my stash, randomly stamped floral images from various PTI stamp sets, adhered the layers together then adhered them to the card from. So simple! I'm looking forward to repeating this technique.
For color inspiration, I'm joining along with the Sunday Stamps challenge where You must use a minimum of 3 colors from the graphic below, plus you may also use a neutral of your choice. 
Up next is an 8" x 10" oil painting featuring a fall pear:
I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday and the 30 in 30 Day 17 sites:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ stay safe!

Autumn wishes 23

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 16, 2017 @ 1:36 AM | ,

Hi there! Today I have a couple projects to share but before I get those I wanted to thank all of you who have asked about my sweet sister Marlene. I'm sad to share that Marlene has lost her fight against breast / brain cancer and is no longer suffering. I'm very grateful for your thoughts and prayers.  

Shown below is a photo of Marlene and my dear niece Renee, Marlene's daughter that was taken last summer shortly after Marlene had received the terminal diagnosis that the cancer had metastasized to her brain.
Up first is a card that I made for my dear niece Renee, Marlene's daughter. Renee is 28 years young which is way too young to lose her Mom. Renee is a First Lieutenant currently serving in the U.S. Army as a Registered Nurse. My heart aches for her, her brother and my BIL. 
I combined a couple of stamp sets from PTI. The pumpkins were stamped using a deep orange ink but I think the images appear more red than orange in the photographs.
For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the Fab Friday challenge:
Up next is an 8" x 10" still life oil painting:

Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
