Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's theme is called "Just a hint of clover". Pull out your green colored supplies, create a fabulous project and share it with us! 
I was inspired by the color green to create a greeting card using various shades of green Distress Stain Sprays:
Admittedly, the color green is not one of my "go to" colors so I was brave and reached for the following Distress Stain Sprays: bundled sage, mowed lawn, evergreen bough and pine needles to create an inky background.
For the focal point, I embellished with a crackled die cut butterfly which was colorized using bundled sage:
For the sentiment, a small talk sticker was used:
I created a Harlequin textured background:
I completed the card with a custom colored Crinkle Ribbon bow and a fun Typed Token:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you join along with theSimon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see all the DT's fabulous inspiration!
Be Sweet ;)

Birthday wishes 19

Mona Pendleton | @ 11:40 AM | , , , ,

Happy March! So did March come in like a lion where you live? Thankfully not here ~ we are enjoying 70 degree temps with partially blue sky. Makes for perfect hiking weather :) Today I have a couple of cards to share featuring beautiful beautiful patterned papers from the Pion Design Paris Flea Market collections. The first one up is a birthday card for my dear sister Tina:
 I embellished both cards with a trio of homemade die cut rolled roses, foliage, a stamped clock and sentiment:
 For a touch of shimmer, each rose was dusted with a sprinkling of glitter:
I cleaned the clock stamp but there was still stubborn black ink that remained on the stamp. When I stamped the image in the tan ink pad, the inks mixed. I kinda like the final result. Something different.
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current cardabilities sketch challenge:
Many thanks for visiting ~ I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

Hi there! It's hard to believe that February is nearly over ~ time sure flies. Today I have a couple of projects to share featuring beautiful patterned papers from the Pion Design My Precious Daughter collection. First up is a layout featuring a photo of sweet Meredith that was taken at least 14 years ago when Barbie's were the center of her world! :)
~she still drank from a sippie cup!
and still had all of her baby teeth :)
I created a textured, inky background using various ColourArte products:
and embellished with a variety of blossoms from my stash and die cut foliage:

From the scraps, I made a rather clean and simple greeting card:
For layout inspiration, I joined along with the current My Scraps and More Sketch challenge:
and for the card sketch and color inspiration, I joined along with the current retrosketches sketch challenge and the color throw down color challenge:

Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
