Mel Jen's Blog Hop


I love MelJen's images. They are always fresh, fun and creative. I am super excited to announce that three HOT designers have been added to the existing team! Tons of inspiration will be coming your way here on my blog and at the Meljen's Designs blog, especially Thursdays, where (each week) there is a new release and a new challenge! Each challenge gives you a chance to win free images, too, so I hope you play along with me!

BUT FIRST. before I get too excited, today marks the beginning of a three-day BLOG HOP PARTY to meet the newly expanded team! Three new designers were added to our team, Darsie, Robbie, and Candace. If you are already HOPPING, you should have come here from Lauretta's BLOG! If not, the list is below, but first let me tell you about my card!







I made a gate fold card. I had so much fun with this one. I used the new "Lovey Little Pup" image and added the "XOXO Stitches" image from a previous release. I added lots of brads, ribbon, glitter pearls, and border punches. I used paper from K&Co. and cardstock from PTI. I had so much fun making this card. I love all the colors and I colored the pup to look like my Panda with my Copic Markers. I used the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge for inspiration. I also participated in the Creative Belli Challenge by using "Jewelry" in my project. I added these adorable glitter pearls on my card:) The Stamptacular Sunday Challenge of "Whateva" was an easy one to follow:)

Be sure to see the new images and the new challenge at the BLOG, too! You will want to play along!

Thanks for letting me share my excitement with you! Now KEEP HOPPING! From here you should go to Lisa M's BLOG LisaM
! You are just going to love her creation, she's so talented!! Oh, did I mention that there's a chance for a grand prize at the end? You also have an opportunity to win the Lovey Pup image that I showcased on my card for commenting on this post. I will choose one winner randomly. The winners will be announced February 9th 10am EST. So be sure to leave everyone some love! Now, hop-Hop-HOP!!
