Monogrammed.

Blog-hop-logo

The PTI blog hop is today with a super fun theme.  Monogrammed cards.  I love it!  I love taking fun alphabet stamps and personalizing cards and gifts.  I thought I would pull out an old favorite of mine.  If you follow my blog you know I loving call her "Mindy".  hehe!  This Mehndi Medallion set is one of my all time faves!  And I think it makes for a fun monogrammed card too....

I used a circle die that fit perfectly inside and then added an "L" from Fresh Alphabet.  (Another of my all time faves!)  For some added texture, I ran it though using a lined impression plate.

We are snowed in again today.  The blizzard is on like donkey kong.  So I am headed straight to see what everyone else is up to today!  Hope you have a great day!  Thanks for stoppin in!
