Meljen's Designs Lots-O-Lovin' Blog Hop


Hello and thank you for stopping by for the party.  The hop starts today, February 3 at 8:00 am eastern time and ends February 8 at 8:00 pm eastern time.  So, what are we celebrating?  Well, Meljen's Design Team has added 3 lovely new team members ... yay!  The new designers are Candace, Darsie, and Robbie and you'll get to see their amazing work when you stop by their blogs.

If  you've arrived here from the Meljen's Designs Challenge and Inspiration Blog,  then you're in the right place.  If not, then go there to start the blog hop.

And what are the prizes you can win on this blog hop, you ask?  Well, there's One Grand Prize of four digis of the winner's choice.  You have to complete the entire blog hop and leave some love on each of the Design Team member's blogs in order to be eligible for the Grand Prize.  Be sure you finish your hop at the Meljen's Designs Challenge and Inspiration Blog for this prize.

You can also win a prize just by leaving a comment on my blog.  I will be giving away a Lovey Pup (see below) image to one lucky random winner ... so you have more chances of winning in this hop!  The other dt members are also giving away an image on their blogs.   


I used Lovey Pup on my card today.  He's so cute, who wouldn't love receiving a card with this adorable puppy?  I used my copics and colored pencils and added a little stickles to some of the hearts.  I added a doily and  used my Martha Stewart lace heart punch for the border.  A bow with a little button finished it off.


In case you get lost along the way here's the order of the blog hop:
