Meljen's Designs #73

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Thursday, August 25, 2011
We're Blasting to the PAST at Meljen's Designs this week!  Showcasing some of our favorite Meljen's Designs images from when we first discovered the amazing artwork of Melissa Jenkins!

I am excited to share with you my FIRST ever Meljen's card using "Little Girl Bear Hugs"

I remember this card well!  I made 2 of these right after we brought our daughter home from her appendix surgery and sent one of them off to the staff in pediatrics at the hospital and another one to the surgeon who performed her surgery.  I was so impressed with how well everyone took care of her and how she barely even noticed what was going on.  While she had all of the nurses wrapped around her little finger, her Daddy and I were on pins and needles and exhausted!   I spent the nights in the hospital with her, but couldn't sleep, so I colored images and blog hopped and left comments all over the blogosphere!  Seeing everyone's beautiful happy cards really cheered me up and was such a big help to me during those hours spent listening to her sleep!  So, this Thank You also goes out to everyone out there who shares their cards online!

Now, I'd also like to share one of my very Favorite cards!  Using one of my favorite images, "Espresso Yourself"!  I just LOVE coffee and everything coffee related and this image is just perfect for me!  I also have a very wonderful friend who loves coffee as much as I do and her birthday was last month.  I had held onto this little tag for a long long time, and finally ended up passing it on to my friend for her birthday.  She loves it and has it displayed in her kitchen, so I can visit it every time I stop by!

Our challenge this week is for you to share YOUR first project using a Meljen's Designs image!  I can't wait to see where the obsession started with you!

Have Fun!
