New Release and Special No-Challenge Contest

Merry Christmas, Meljen's Fans!!

This week we are going to have a No-Challenge contest, in lieu of our regular challenge.  Instead of a challenge theme and samples, we are going to share with you our new release images for this week AND offer you a chance to win some free images - without submitting a card!

To start off, please allow me to share with you our new release images for this week!

These are so cute and so fun!  I just love how the mailboxes work their way from Christmas into wintery January and then into the Valentine theme!  And some Sticky Sweet Buns and a yummy Sweet Chocolate Bar to also get you in the mood for Valentines!  Such awesome creations from Melissa, as always!

Each of these images can be purchased right now in the Meljen's Corner at Whimsy Stamps

And, don't forget about the Dear Santa Letter freebie that you can also find at Whimsy Stamps!  Print it out so that your little ones can color it up and leave it for Santa on Friday night!  I wonder how many Meljen's letters he'll get!  :o)

From Jessica 

Ok, now it's contest time!!

If you are interested in a chance to win 2 free images from Meljen's Designs, all you need to do is leave a comment on THIS post sharing your FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MEMORY.  We are all so excited for this chance to get to know all of you and learn more about your holidays!  At the end of the week, we will draw 3 random winners to win 2 images each!

I would like to wish you ALL a very Merry Christmas, I hope that you have a wonderful time with family and friends and that Santa treats you well!

Tantalizing Tooooooosday 12/21

Merry Christmas week, everyone!!!

Oh, I hope you are all having a wonderful week!  I know how busy everyone must be, as our team member, Jessica, put it - we are "feverishly getting ready for Christmas"!!  I have been non-stop since Saturday and I can't quite see the end of the tunnel yet!  I still have shopping to do, so much wrapping, baking, cooking... oh, the list never ends!  But, you know, even with how busy it is - it is SO MUCH FUN!!!

Our team has managed to find some time to make some cards, so here I am to share them with you!

And, Anita is keeping her Bundled Little Snowboy warm

Sandy's doing some baking of a non-holiday sort, using Cupcake Treat Trio

I've finally got my Christmas Tree decorated!

Lauretta is snuggling with some Cozy Little Chickadees

Melissa's got some Candy Canes to share

And now for some Red, Green & Gold creations from YOU!

Maybe Santa and his reindeer have something special for Pattie this year

Such yummy cupcakes from Mimi

Thanks for playing along with us, everyone!!

I'll see you on Thursday with another FABBY release!!  I can't wait to share it with you :o)

Hugs and have a WONDERFUL busy week!
