Tiny Flowers, Soft Colors, Vintage

I really enjoyed making the new month's Calendar for the 2011 Calendar Challenge by Kate For July. I was thinking about vintage looks and little bouquets of garden flowers, most likely because of all of the floral ~wedding~ conversations floating about over here.

We are going to order the flowers online, have them delivered shortly before the wedding day, and make all of our own bouquets and arrangements!

Imagine ivory and roses...wildflowers...! 

July is a big month for us with lots of birthdays and parties in the family, too

 Of course, because I love to color,
I had to fill in the petals on the most important July days!

It was fun to use my new floral wreath/circle stamp. 
I thought it was the cutest thing when I saw it in the shop,
but I didn't know at the time, what I'd use it for.

Perfect for calendar days, it turns out!

Happy of July to you all!
Thank you so much for visiting me!
You make me grin wildly!

Hi Kath! Yes this July is exciting! I was comparing calendars (mine is only in my head) and the bridal shower here is on Saturday the 9th, and the wedding on the 22nd! Even as mother of the groom for me it's been a bit hectic... Today I started altering the wedding dress... scary stuff!! We didn't have a pastor until 2 days ago! Things are starting to calm down and fit in place though... I love the vineyard pictures in your prior post! What a neat place for a wedding! The flowers will be awesome!
Hi to Ellie! XO, Cat
