Happy Anniversary, Meljen's Designs! BLOG HOP SURPRISE!



HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, Melissa!!!!!!

This past 12 months has been a whirlwind for Melissa Jenkins!  She debuted last April 1st with her Meljen's Designs line of stamps (digital AND rubber, too!) and grew by leaps and bounds!!!!  I have been blessed to have worked alongside Melissa and watch her company grow and I feel so blessed for that.  Melissa is a true artist and inspiration to me and above all of that, she's one of my best friends! 

We are celebrating our anniversary today with a BLOG HOP! You should have come here from Melissa Andrew's blog, but if not, you can start at the beginning at Anita's blog here!  To be eligible for the prizes, you need to leave everyone some love on the hop, and if you wouldn't mind sharing which Meljen's Designs image is your favorite, I would love to know!  Or comment and share an image you would like to see made into a digi!  That'd be cool, too!


Here's my super cute creation, using the Cuddle Bun Buddies image and the sketch by The Sweet Stop Sketch Blog.  I used my Prismacolor Pencils and gamsol for blending to color these cuties up and I also used Imaginisce papers, crystal embellies by Kaisercraft, paperflower by Prima and ribbon by Prairie Bird Boutique to pull it together! (the twisted ribbon rose was a gift, not sure where you can purchase that, sorry!)

Thanks for celebrating with us!  Be sure to keep hopping now to Robbie's Blog! You will just love what she designed!  She's uber talented and even more creative, I must say!  Here's the complete listing, in case you get lost!

Congratulations, Melissa!

I LOVE YOU

and 

wish you continued success!

Nicole, I just LOVE the bright and cherry colors you used in this card. The bunnies are so adorable. My favorite image of Melissa's is Bubble Bath Bunny.

What sweet little bunnies. Love the rosey ribbon too, just sets off the whole card. I have a few Meljen digistamps and my favourite is Girl and her Overalls, she's a bit of a tomboy and reminds me of me when I was young.
