Meljen's Designs Anniversary HOP


And in honor of this wonderful occasion, we are having a HOP. Can you tell I'm excited, I keep using all caps. Teehee. The hop runs from 10am Eastern TODAY through MONDAY.

3 RANDOM WINNERS each will get 3 FREE images of their choice, but must comment on everyone's blogs to be eligible. Winners will be announced: On Monday, April 4th in the Freebie Monday post! In addition there is a SALE of 50% off of Melissa's DIGIS during the DURATION of the BLOG HOP, until Monday.

OK so you should have come here from Dianna's blog, but if not here is the complete hop lineup, starting with the main blog itself:

Jessica (ME)


For my card today I chose to use one of Melissa's pre-colored digis, Lots O Love Octopus. I just love these pre-colored guys. Sure helps in a pinch. I used some fun double sided paper I got at the CK Convention here in Portland last weekend, along with some buttons I got there too. I topped it all off by threading the sheer ribbon through the eyelets of the lacey cirlce nestie. My son just got invited to a birthday party for a girl in his class and he wants to give this to her for her birthday card. So sweet.

I would appreciate it if you could comment with your all-time favorite digi of Melissa's. That would be cool, so that we know which images you love the best.

Thanks for visiting my blog, Now you should be off to visit the lovely Katja, and HAPPY HOPPING!!

Jessica, your card is so pretty. I love how you've laced the ribbon through the nestie cutout.

I think my favorite is Sick Little bear but it's so hard to try to choose only one...I love them all!

Diane S said...

I just cannot pick any favorites. Each one is cuter then the one before!

Robin Parker said...

Jessica, I love this octopus image. What a great idea to lace ribbon through the lacey circle. My favorite image of Melissa's is Bubble Bath Bunny.

Lyndi said...

What a sweet card. I love the ribboned nesties. I have a few Meljen digistamps and my favourite is Girl and her Overalls, she's a bit of a tomboy and reminds me of me when I was young.

Denimo said...

What a sweet card Jessica! AND what a great hop and a sale on top of it all!! :)

Denimo said...

Pooh... I forgot to add my fave Meljen's stamp. This is very hard, but I'll say 'Free Kittens'. Those little cuties just make me smile every time I see them. (I wouldn't expect you to count this comment for the draw.) THANKS!

What a cute idea with the ribbon. I love pre-colored digis too.

Sara I. said...

Love how you weaved the ribbon into the loops of the scallop!! All time fave of Melissa's is the Sunflower Buggie image!

Laura said...

Cute card. I never really thought of buying a precoloured digi before, but I guess it would be great when your in a hurry to make a card. It also gives me an idea of how Melissa envisioned it.
Anywho enough rambling. One of my fav digis is Noah's Ark.
Have a great day!
