BIGGER AND BETTER THAN EVER!

Well, I have hinted long enough!  Here's the news!  Not only is today the SIX MONTH Anniversary of  Meljen's Designs (it's sky-rocketing to huge heights of success!!!)  BUT it's the announcement that we expanded our Design Team!  Actually, we DOUBLED it in size!   So, now there's going to be even MORE inspiration and MORE fun at the Meljen's Designs blog each week!


So, this excitement calls for a BLOG HOP PARTY, don't you think?!!  Hop along, meet the newbies and greet the regulars!  If you are already HOPPING, you should have come here from Melissa Forquer's BLOG!  If not, the list is below, but first let me tell you about my card!


Here's a sweet Halloween card that I made for my son's teacher, Mrs. Denu.  She's been super helpful with Eli and getting him into the swing of 3rd grade-things, so I have to say THANKS in a nice way to her, of course including some candy!  Along with some Stampin' Up! papers, copic coloring and ribbon by Prairie Bird Boutique, I used this cute image 'Pumpkin Bumpkin' that was just released yesterday!  Be sure to see the new images and the new challenge at the BLOG, too!  You will want to play along!

Ok, keep on with the PAR-TAY!  Hop on over to Sandy's BLOG HERE!  She is getting you into the Christmas spirit with her two cards!!  There are FOUR PRIZES to be won,  so be sure to leave everyone some love! 

Keep Hoppin' along!!

Nicole - You are here!
