Meljen Designs and Monday


Hi there , welcome to my room . Hope that you and yours are enjoying happiness  in abundance.
Thank you heaps for calling in . I have had some really kind words left on my posts as of late and I  truly appreciate every single comment .
Had a craft friend here,  Friday,  for a couple of hours of papercraft therapy . Jane and I seem to finish the kits I prepared,  a bit earlier so we managed a couple of extra cards as well . A surprise for me too as Jane had bought me back a couple of 12"x12" papers from the south east  which I cant wait to use  .

Now this must have been my lucky week because I had a gift too from Tuesday's girls Sandy and Fran .

But for now I will share with you a card made with an image from our fab sponsor this week at the Make it Monday Linky Party .
This week we are being sponsored once again by the ever fun and cute Meljen Designs Digital Stamps!
Meljen Designs Digital Stamps are giving away the lovely prize of the winner's choice of 4 single digis!

Remember, to be in the running to win the prize from our sponsor this week just leave a comment for another entry. Be sure to mention you saw them on Make It Monday. The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning!

And here is my card ..

This is one Lovin' Turtle, from our sponsor.  Card used Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White , SU , and  for the image that I paper pieced over first image, Shimmery White also from SU. I coloured with copics . Ribbon and felt flowers from SU .Dsp from my stash .
The other teamies have fab projects to share too, for your viewing pleasure,  so please visit them too.
The hardest part of being on a DT is having to choose a POTW from all the wonderful , inspirational and extremely talented papercraft artists.
My POTW....
Loved this Billie . I'll remember that tip about calendar pages at the end of the year too.

Must have some of that Washi Tape too, now I see it in action .
And lastly for this long and photo heavy post , my thought for today in the " Be Thankful" Series

Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you
opportunities for improvement.

Hope to see you at the Make it Monday Linky Party with your entry .
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

Shirley-Anne this is the cutest turtle. I love the layout and the colour scheme as I am a big fan of neutral tones and texture. Those flowers and the ribbon are terrific. Thanks for sharing.

I really like your tortoise. I like to repeat my image on the insert which is why digi images are so useful, because they are easy to down-size. I read the blog of your choice this week, and I will definitely be cutting some calendar butterflies and flowers. Don't we come across good ideas in blog-land? Enjoy your week.
