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

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
