Spiral bouquet monograms for a friend
I made about 14 of these for my college roommate who I hardly ever get to see. She just shipped me back a whole box full of books I lent to her about a year or so ago. We have always shared a love of reading, and I just love the O'Malley series by Dee Henderson (well I love all her books), and thought Andrea would love them as well. I have a couple of books to send back to her, so I thought I would include some cards for her. I'll post the other one when I get it all glued together while I am waiting for 2 hrs. for my sons' MyGym classes to be over. I have been trying to get things stamped and cut out before their classes and I sit there and glue them together while waiting. Much more productive and it makes the time go faster. Who knows, maybe it will spark some new business. Wouldn't that be sweet?
Anyway I am thinking spring and summer and thought that Cameo coral, groovy guava, and gable green screamed this theme, and looked like cut up cantelopes and honeydew melons to me. Mmmm. I am looking forward to eating some of that soon, as they come in season here.
I used Spiral bouquet, and the Trajan and Ambassador monograms from Papertrey ink on these.
The second photo uses Ruff Day, and some patterned paper I found in my stash. It is cute. A retired Stampin' UP! set.
I just ordered my Walkabella, Teachabella and Beachabella (kinibella) tonight, so I'll be making some more cards for her with the walkabella, as she has a dog.
