Release Week - Day 2

Hi everyone!!

Did you all add Cat in the Bag to your Meljen's Wish List yesterday??

Grab that wish list and pencil, because you're going to want to add this one to it as well!

I'd like to share another beautiful card Embellished By Dianna!

Today she used one of 2 new adorable mouse images - that's right!  We've got 2 new mice coming to you!  Melissa knows that they are a favorite of yours!  :)

Di has colored up Little Miss Heart Mouse just in time for Valentine's Day!


Isn't she just adorable?  I love the soft, muted colors that Di used on this card!

We will see you tomorrow with another new image to show off and remember - all of these adorable new images will be available in the shop on Friday, February 3rd!



Hugs!

EXCITING NEWS!

Exciting Announcement!

Ceal Pritchett, who is our January Guest Designer, is joining our Design Team, effective immediately!!  We had a designer step down due to pressing responsibilities, which of course gave us a gap in our team!  Ceal applied to our DT call last fall and missed it by the skin of her teeth, so we felt it only appropriate to extend the invitation to her!  We are happy that she accepted!  But, we need for her to finish up her Guest Design-GIG today FIRST! 

So, here ya go!


As you can see, Ceal used this week's CHALLENGE of using Hearts!  Some people are intimidated to use Pink and Red together (including ME!) but WOW, does Ceal make this Sweetheart Cupcake look gorgeous or what?  I also love how she mixed the patterns of big dots, and small dots and squiggles of writing!  Just a sweet card and perfect for anyone at Valentine's Day or for your Anniversary!  That red just makes this card POP!  I am not good at using primary colors, I mostly use a lot of muted earthtones, but she sure does make me feel like pulling out the bold colors the next time I make a card!  Thanks, Ceal!

If you would like to join in on this week's challenge for a chance to win some Meljen's images, be sure to scroll down to play along!  AND to see more creations by Ceal, pop on over to her Simply Beautiful Creations BLOG HERE!  Of course you will be seeing more of her here on our blog with each release and challenges in-between! SUPER EXCITING AND INSPIRING!

Don't forget that we are on facebook!  Pop on over to our facebook page HERE and see what Melissa and the Meljen's Designers are up to!  Can't wait to see you!

Melissa's digis are available on her website HERE ! And she has rubber stamps, too! Melissa has her own corner at Whimsy Stamps There's something for everyone at Meljen's Designs!

Hope your weekend is fabulous!
