July - Kristi Valiant

This is from talented illustrator Kristi Valiant!

"Did I make it on time? I think one of the posts said until 7 tonight, so here's my month of July - the month I was married in 2006! Such a romantic month... ahhhh..."

"The scene in the background is from a beautiful area of China that my husband and I visited one summer. And I made the little guy presiding over the wedding a mouse because of a Chinese love song that my husband and I sing to each other that goes, "I love you, loving you, as the mouse loves the rice..." or in Chinese, "wo ai ni ai zhe ni jiu xiang lao shu ai da mi"

Good Luck, Kristi!

What a charming illustration.
So sweet how the giraffes curve in the shape of a heart.
