MelJen's Designs - A New Release

Hello peeps!  It's Thursday and that means Melissa has a new MelJen's Designs stamp release.  You can check out all her fantastic new stamps over at Whimsy Stamps

I used the Cozy Winter Mailbox image for my card today.  I colored it with my copics and prismacolor pencils and added Glamour Dust for some sparkle on the snow.  I used some of my snowflake punches and also added some Glamour Dust and a gem to each of the snowflakes.  I know most people are saying that they are tired of making Christmas cards and ready to move on to the next holiday.  But not me...I really enjoy making Christmas cards.  I still have so many new Christmas images that haven't seen ink so you'll probably see me making Christmas cards throughout the year.

Please be sure you stop by MelJen's Designs Challenge and Inspiration Blog to see what the talented DT members have created this week.

Thanks for stopping by!

  15. Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 500 so far !

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
