Good morning!  Welcome to my post for the Papertrey Ink February Blog Hop.  Like last month, when I saw this month’s challenge, I thought I would “PASS!”  Then one night doing something totally unrelated, I decided to plug in “monogram” into a Pinterest search.  This lovely framed monogram came up…

Then I googled “monogram programs,” hoping a free monogram program would come up.  I didn’t keep looking after seeing a site explaining how to make one in Word!  Perfect!  The trick is to enlarge it to 150 and use a light ink colour.  I’ve used gray at less than 25%.  Thanks so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments.  I’m looking forward to seeing all the different ways to use monograms and will definitely be using them again :)  Hugs!

I love the soft grey. It reminds me of Aimes cards with the gorgeous Memento London Fog ink. The sweet sentiment under neath is perfect!

On my first flight of the morning. Only about eight hours to go until arrival.
