Meljen's Designs Sketch Challenge

Before I get rolling with my post, let me apologize in advance if my post looks a little strange today. Blogger has been driving me crazy during the last several days by either removing my line breaks and adding extra line breaks where they don't belong. Since it is getting late on Wednesday night and I am trying one last time to fix up my post, I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.


Now back to our regularly scheduled programming....


It's Thursday so it's time for the Meljen's Designs new release and new challenge. DT member Diana Kronquist created a great sketch for us to use in our challenge this week. For my card, I used the new Victorian Bird Cage image paired up with my favorite October Afternoon papers.



Here is a look at the sketch for the challenge this week. You can see the challenge rules and link up your project on the Meljen's Designs blog.




Here is a peek at the new release. These will be available in the Whimsy Stamps store today.




Don't forget to come by tomorrow for the Meljen's Designs 1st Birthday blog hop and the Whimsy Stamps new digital release blog hop. As with most blog hop, there are prizes involved, but you have to stop back tomorrow to get the details.

Love your card, the bird cage with the DP is so perfect and the color combo is one of my favorites. Your blog looks just fine, I know my DD and others are struggling with pictures not loading or being removed and my DD is on the new version, so I think Blogger is struggling with it right now, don't sweat it, we come for your gorgeous cards.
Oooooh, so nice!! I love the music background with the singing birdie! Fabulous :)

And the felt heart with the bakery twine!!

Terrific :)

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.



I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)




Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
