They Say It’s Your Bee-Day!

Pin It

Today I am still on a break from Christmas and have another birthday card to show to you using Meljen’s Designs Birthday Bee. As I mentioned before I have sooooo many December birthdays so I am trying to get some cards ready to mail.

Are you ready for some serious cuteness? Check out the new digis Melissa is releasing to the store. I love them so!

The new Meljen’s Designs challenge is Use Green! You can use any shade and as much as you want as long as you use green on your project. You can see the challenge rules, the DT projects, and the linky tool on the Meljen’s Designs blog.
