It's time for another new challenge at Meljen's Designs!  And, I'm sure you know, every new challenge comes with a new release, too!!!  Yay!!  We've got some super cute images to share with you today and the Design Team has some amazing creations using them!

Our challenge this week is to create something Cold and Snowy!!  Should be SO easy with Meljen's winter images!  If you don't have any, you can find them in the shop at Whimsy Stamps!

Here's my card, using the new Yeti Cocoa image

It's so hard to tell in the photo, but I added some clear microbeads to the snow and it looks really cute in person!

If you've played along with Meljen's, you really should!  There's a chance to win 3 free images in our challenges!  And, everyone needs these super cute images in their collection!

Have Fun!

Meljen's Inspiration!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Tuesday, December 14, 2010 9 stamps of approval

Did you see that Meljen's Designs now has a FEW select PRE-COLORED images??  All ready to go, just print them up, cut them out and paste them to some pretty paper!  How great is that??  And, for those of you (like me) who haven't quite finished their Christmas cards yet... the first release is all Christmas themed, so it's SO easy to get those cards done and in the mail!

Check it out - I've made a super cute card using the Caroling Snowmen pre-colored image and I think it took me about 5 minutes to put this card together!

I really love this card!  I think I'm going to make up a few more to finish off the Christmas card list!

You can find all of the pre-colored images right HERE in the Meljen's Corner at Whimsy Stamps!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Fresh Brewed - Sparkle and Shine
Digital Tuesday - Sparkling Christmas
The Pink Elephant - Winter Wonderland
The Crafty Pad - Embossing
A Spoonful of Sugar - Christmas Card

I've made a Christmas card using the Oh-So-Fun Christmas Moose image!  Now, I had to giggle while I was making this card, because I finished it up right after my hubby and I had finished hanging all the lights on the house!  And, so I was looking at this little moose, all tangled up in lights, thinking of my hubby.. all tangled up in lights!  Hehhehe!

As always, there are prizes to be won at Karen's Doodles!  But, you have to play to win!

Hope to see you join us this week!

It's another super fun Stamptacular Sunday!!

We challenge you to create a Winter Wishes project this week!

Our wonderful sponsor is My Favorite Things - with a prize of one $25 gift certificate!

I've used some My Favorite Things snowmen today and some non-traditional colors.  I colored the image bright, so that it would pop against the papers.  Hope you like it!

By the way - BIG thanks to my friend Jessica for sending me the papers - I was desperately low on Christmassy paper!

Thanksgiving Turkeys

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Friday, December 03, 2010 0 stamps of approval
Hi All!!

I saw this super cute idea somewhere in the blogosphere and thought I would make up some placecards for Thanksgiving dinner at my parents house.

 I used my Build A Turkey stamp set by Unity and each little turkey is sitting on a Hershey Nugget!

Here's a view of the table with all my little turkeys (one for each member of the family) - and a pumpkin that Mom made last year.

And, here's the biggest Turkey of all - my Brother!  And, of course, my Mom ♥ 

I'm sure my bro will be just thrilled to find his photo on my blog... hehehe!
