BLOG HOP AND RELEASE

Happy Thursday everyone. We have some very exciting news at Meljen's Designs today.

Melissa has decided to open up her own shop for her images. You can find them all at Meljen's Shop, now this store will have digis, pre-colored digis, and freebies. Any Rubber will still be available to purchase here at the Whimsy Shop.

In honor of the new store we are having a BLOG HOP!!! Dont forget to leave a comment on the Design Team blog to be entered into the Blog Hop Prize Drawing.


We are also having a wonderful new challenge today:  No Patterned Paper (only SOLID cardstock).

Here is the order for the HOP!!


For my HOP card today I have used an image that was released back in May called Message in a Bottle. I wanted to showcase an older image because I feel sometimes its eaasy to over look some great images when the new ones come out. I really love how versitile this image could be. I did follow this week's challenge by using only cardstock, although I did use an embossed one for texture. As always I kept the card simple, however I did use the embossed cardstock and I added  some black dew drops. I topped it off by attaching the sentiment with a mini clothespin.


Now that you have seen what I have to share with you, please head on over to Katja's blog and see what she has to share.  Be sure to leave her some love and tell her what you loved about her creation.

When you are all done with the HOP and you make it to the Meljen's Designs DT blog, check out this week's challenge. FYI, the challenge also gives you a chance to win free images. Don't forget to grab this week's FREEBIE while you are there.
