Birthday Pansies

The Meljen’s Designs challenge for this week is a super easy one.  This week we want you to wow us with ANYTHING GOES!   Knock off our socks with any project using a Meljen’s Designsimage.

For my project, I decided to go with paper piecing again.  It must be the spring fever that I am suffering from that has made me not want to color.   But that is okay because Meljen’s has so many images that work perfectly with paper piecing.   (Melissa also has a large variety of precolored digis if you don’t feel like paper piecing either.)

When you stop by the Meljen’s Designs blog to link up your ANYTHING GOES creation, be sure to check out the posts from the Design Team.    We all are taking turns posting tutorials, tips, or little snippets about our favorite Meljen’s Designs images.    If you haven’t dropped by, you are missing out on all kinds of beautiful projects and inspiring tutorials.

Do you remember what exciting event occurred at the beginning of April 2 years ago?  What?  You don’t?  Well, the very first Meljen’s Designs Design Team was kicked off with a blog hop. (I was part of that team!)    In order to celebrate, we are going to have an Anniversary Blog Hop starting on April 2nd.   And what is a blog hop with out prizes?  Mark your calendars!  You won’t want to miss it.

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Berry the Snowman

Okay, Berry the Snowman doesn’t have the same ring as Frosty, but I think his cuteness totally makes up for it.  This is another one of the images that I colored during my crafting day with a friend before Thanksgiving.  I’m happy I had the chance to get him on a card.    Have a great week!  Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Berry from Stacy Yacula Studio at Purple Onion DesignsInks:  Memento Tuxedo Black Papers:  Neenah Classic Craft Solar White CS, Papertrey kraft CS, Carta Bella Winter Fun paper pad 6x6 Tools:  Sewing machine, Big Shot, Papertrey Doily details die, Stampin’ Up corner punch, Copic markers Embellishments:  May Arts Burlap twine, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, button Challenges:Clear It Out 2W, 3E, Must use stash item - Challenge: Anything Goes Stash Item:Anything Goes (Twine, button, die cut – had it cut and sitting in a bin since last Xmas)Loves Rubber Stamps W - #82 Anything Goes ChristmasOldie But A Goodie Challenge 2W, must use something at least 6mts ol…
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.
