My Sweet Boyfriend
Almost 2 1/2 years ago my BFF introduced me to a wonderful man. He is kind and generous, and quickly became my Sweet Boyfriend (SB)! The first year we dated, he brought me red roses each month. Each month there was one more rose in the bouquet, counting the months we had known each other, all the way to one year and twelve beautiful red roses. I love flowers, and this was such a sweet gesture, but when we got to one year, I told him he had to stop.
He did stop bringing roses, but he didn't stop bringing me flowers!! I have made no secret of how much I love this, I have always loved having fresh cut flowers in my home.
Now, almost 2 1/2 years later, the flowers continue. On the 27th of each month there is a fresh bouquet of beautiful colours and varieties. The May flowers were especially beautiful, with their gorgeous spring colours and as soon as I saw them I knew I had to copy them for a card. Here is the gorgeous bouquet SB brought me.
I thought it was wonderful that the bouquet had Melon Mambo roses and Grapefruit Grove carnations. The Garden Green foliage enhanced all the hues of these colours in. Feeling inspired, I created this card.
I used the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies to cut out the flowers for my card. Then I coloured them using sponge daubers and the ink that matched my bouquet. Itty Bitty Greetings provided the perfect sentiment, because these flowers were truly Sent With Love.
