Meljen's Designs ANNIVERSARY BLOG HOP!!

Happy 2nd Anniversary to my dear friend, Melissa Jenkins, owner and illustrator of Meljen's Designs!!   I have become very good friends with Melissa over the last couple of years and feel so blessed to have her in my life!!  I am so proud of her and her artistic achievements with Meljen's Designs, she's a real inspiration and she has shown me what you can do if you follow your passion!


I made a few cards for today's blog hop!  And I will be giving away one of them to one of my lucky readers!!  Just comment which one you want, along with an email to contact you, in case you win, and I will send it your way at the conclusion of the hop on Friday the 6th!  There's also a chance to win more on the main challenge blog at the end of the hop and on each designer's blog, so keep hopping till the end!  If you want to start at the beginning, go to Audrey's blog HERE!!!

My first card is for YOU, my readers and Melissa's fans!  I just want to remind you to delight in the day today and EVERY DAY!  The days DO go by faster and faster as you get older.  My momma told me that when I was little, but little did I understand until recently when my youngest entered school fulltime and I soon saw an empty home from 8am to 3pm, five days a week!  It's quite lonely without my kiddos around, so thank goodness summer is quickly approaching, right?? 

For this one, I used the Pre-colored Little Light Bulb!  I used the same layout in each card, showing how with the change of color and different image, the same layout can take on a variety of feelings....

This card is in honor of Jess, one of Meljen's Designers who couldn't hop with us today.  She's had a bit of illness take over the family, so Jess, we hope everyone gets better soon!  This one uses Pre-colored Sick Little Bear, a popular image of Melissa's....

This card was made in honor of another Meljen's Designs designer who couldn't hop with us today, too.  Lisa lost her dear doggie-friend on Saturday to cancer.  We are thinking of you, Lisa!  This one uses Pre-colored Teddy Angel....

And this one is for Melissa, in celebration of Meljen's Designs turning TWO today!!  This one uses Pre-colored Birthday Cupcake, it's just perfect for any occasion!  Including a SALE!

That's right, Melissa is having a BOGO SALE during the entire month of APRIL!  Buy one image, get one for FREE!  Melissa wants us to celebrate with anniversary with her, so enjoy the sale (after you finish hopping of course)!! 


So, what do you do now??

KEEP HOPPING TO

She's got something extra special for you today!  Better go check it out and leave her some love to get in on a chance to win there, too!!  Here is a list of the Designers' blogs in alphabetical order...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, MELISSA!!

All of these cards are amazing! They are just to cute. That light bulb is possibly my favourite image. You know how hard it is to choose a favourite, but really...sweet! Love it! Thanks for sharing all of these.

I love how you have used the same layout three times. It definitely shows how different a card can look with a variety of papers, but the same layout. dhamoen@bell.net

I love your cards. They are so adorable. Thank you for sharing with us and I love the sentiments you used with each one. Wow, to choose which one I like best, it would be between the sick bear and the cupcake. With so many friends of mine sick, it would have to be the "Sick Little Bear" Thank you for sharing with us. Hugs Cathy K visionscj@earthlink.net
