Meljen's Designs - Feeling A Bit Dotty

Spring is coming! Melissa of Meljen's Designs is getting us in the spring mood with some new little baby bunnies!! These are just the sweetest, cutest, cuddliest little loves ever! I just know you're going to love them!




I used Cuddle Bun Love to make a card to welcome a baby girl. I have the sentiment "Welcome Sweet Baby" on the inside because I just couldn't fit on the front.

Have you noticed all the stitching on my cards lately. I am really loving my new little sewing machine. But, let me let you in on a little secret. I sewed the front of the card to the card base. Not only that but I sewed the card closed. No wonder the needle didn't seem to want to go through. I guess 4 layers of PTI card stock might be a bit much for my cheap little machine. Never fear, I made a new base to put my card front on. Of course I might need a second mortgage on my house to pay for postage.....

Here is a peek at all the images release this week. They are perfect for the new Meljen's Designs Challenge, "Use Dots".


Thank you for stopping by! Happy Friday and have a great week end!

This is adorable Cheryl, loved that you sewed it together, sounds like something I would do, if I could sew a straight line, lol.

Cheryl, that sweet little image is adorable! Your coloring is perfect, too. I had a little chuckle at your sewing the card closed. I have a tiny sewing machine, too and one of the few times I attempted to use it I did that, too. You are not alone! :) The pink trim and seam binding are gorgeous accents! Have a great day!

Very, very cute, Cheryl! What an adorable image that is. Love all your layers and LOVE the stitching. That's one of my favorite things to do on my projects....stitching. Love the row of flower ribbons and the seam binding bow, too.
Really sweet!

I love this card Cheryl. You've colored this adorable image beautifully and the papers are so pretty. I am in love with that beautiful ribbon you've used. Well, if your machine can sew through 4 layers of PTI, it's a strong machine lol!

Dixie said...

Wow, this is just adorable! So soft and feminine, I love it. I laughed at your account of sewing the card together. Sounds like something I would do, but I wouldn't have the foresight to mount it on another base. lol
