OWH Memorial Day BLOG HOP!!


Howdy, PEEPS!!
It's an exciting time for us here at Meljen's Designs!!
WHY?
Because it's time for the Operation Write Home Memorial Blog Hop!!  <~~ Click on that link to start at the beginning, if you like!
Melissa has not only wanted to celebrate Memorial Day weekend by participating in the OWH Blog Hop, but also lavish you with a couple of freebie-surprises and a 10% OFF SALE at her corner of the Whimsy Stamps Store!  CLICK HERE to see all of her digistamps that are on sale!!
But first, let's see what a couple of our designers
have made using one of the new freebies below!

Anita's patriotic card is just beautiful!! 
Love all those stars and fireworks! 
TOO SWEET!

And here's Di's serene, beachy-feeling card
with a little use of marine blue and sand/kraft paper! 
GORGEOUS!

So, are you in LOVE with this image yet?  I BET SO!  Well, you can have it for free, BUT only prior to Tuesday, May 31st.  After Monday, it will be put in the Whimsy Stamps Store, so grab it now for FREE by CLICKING HERE!

Above digi is FREE till May 31st,
after that it will be available at Whimsy Stamps!

  You can use this second Freebie for so many reasons, but especially for those Thank You's you want to write to all of our soldiers, Present and Past, who have done their best and given their all in serving to protect us and our awesome country!  It is also great for children to color and write a Thank You note to their teachers!  CLICK HERE to get it!


Thank you to ALL of those brave men and women who have sacrificed so much, even their own lives, for all of us to be able to live FREE! 
MAY GOD BLESS YOU RICHLY!
Thanks for joining us at Meljen's Designs!!  We hope you drop by again to see our new releases each Thursday (and sometimes inbetween!) AND participate in our fun challenges for your chance at more freebies AND being in our Top Five Favorites!
