Cozy Owl Christmas

Pin It

Another Christmas card done! Have you started yours? I envy the people that have been working on them all year. I know I will come up short and have to send out (dare I say it?) store bought cards. Oh well, I will continue working on them as much as I can over the next couple of months. (Eeks –Can you believe Christmas is only a couple of months away?)

This is another Meljen’s Designs image that I loved as soon as I saw it. For what ever reason, I didn’t have time to use it before now so I am happy to finally have the chance to color him up.

By the way, are you a fan of Meljen’s Designs images? Did you see there is a DT call going on right now? We are looking for a few fun and talented people to join the team. You can find all the details on this post.

Since it is Thursday, Melissa is releasing some new images into the shop. Here’s a look at them. If you would like to see some projects using them, stop by the Meljen’s Designs blog. The DT has some projects ready for the new challenge (Ribbon) using these new images.

I hope you will join the Meljen’s Designs “Ribbon” challenge this week!

Super adorable card, Cheryl! That little owl is just the cutest thing. Love the coloring, and love the added glitter. The snowflake behind the sentiment is fabulous, too, and I adore the ribbon. :)
