Melaine's Blog Hop!!!

Well it is no surprise to anyone here that I adore Melaine's sets that can be found here at Gina K Designs. She is celebrating her second year blogaversary and 25 released sets. Not only can you win neat things found here at her blog, but you can also create a card using one of her stamp sets and join the hop as well. How fun is that?

I just got home late yesterday and do you think I unpacked, put away Christmas decorations or cleaned? NO, I just had to go and make a fun card for this great celebration. One of my new years resolutions is to keep up and blog my challenge cards. Too often I create them and then never get around to posting.

Since I had a lot of time at a hotel room Friday and Saturday due to a weather delay, I was able to check out quite a few challenge sites, needless to say I was swimming with inspiraiton. First I used the skech from JUGS. I really like this fun challenge site, but I haven't played as much as I would like. Then I saw this fun challenge from Embellish Magazine and thought it would work well with some of Mel's cuttie patottie animal sets.

Then when surfing, I ran into this fun card campaign for Winter. She is wanting to get a ton of cards for St. Judes. I really thought it was a fun idea, so I am going to be whipping up some more to send out.
Finally the card


Don't you think a little child would love this fun Valentines Day card? I have always loved the fun and playful animals that Melaine draws and this zebra is no exception. Hopefully there are more cuties headed our way LOL!

It's a good life!

Love your card! The kids will love it! We lost our 4 1/2 year old, Ethan, to cancer this past June so I completely understand being in the hospital with my kiddo and I'm sure that the kids at St. Jude will appreciate this so much!
