Meljen Madness

Hiya everyone, hope ya all had a fantabulous Christmas.  Santa's coming a second time to our home as my mum's coming today - loaded with presents for the children - she don't half spoil them lol.

As some of you know my craft stuff gets moved into the loft at the end of November so the whole family can use the dining room during the holidays.  I started moving my stash back downstairs on Tuesday and since then I've made TWELVE cards - think I've gone from withdrawal to overdose in two days rofl.

Some were DT makes which I can't show you yet but I have made some cards just for fun using some awesome images from Meljen's Designs.  I been itching to use these and it was driving me nuts that my stash was packed away - at least I got a headstart with next years Christmas cards. 

My first one is called "Caroling Snowmen"


I'm entering this card into the following challenges -

Craft Your Passion - Red, Green and Cream 
Creative Craft - Anything Goes

----------------------------------------

I've used "Happy Little Gnome" to make a thankyou card


Magical Monday - Thankyou
Cupcake Craft - Thankyou
Cute Card Thursday - Thankyou
C.R.A.F.T. - Thankyou
Papertake Weekly - Be Thankful
Create for Fun - Sketch

-----------------------------------------------------------

My third card is using "Bundled Little Snowboy"


Stampin4 the Weekend - Christmas and DT call
Crazy Challenge - Punch It
Meljen's Designs - Cold and Snowy
Digital Tuesday - Anything Goes

----------------------------------------------------------

My fourth and final Meljen card today is a little cutie called "Cozy Little Chickadees"


I'm entering this last card into the following challenges.......

Totally Gorjuss - For Someone Special
Crafty Emma - Anything Goes

All of Melissa's images are available to purchase exclusively from Whimsy Stamps HERE .
Thanks for stopping by.  It's 13.30 here so I'd better get dressed lol, taken me ages to sort my cards out.  I'm hoping to keep well ahead with my DT makes in 2011 - gives me valuable time to play along in challenges myself as I've really missed it this year and been a bit disorganised.

Better have a quick tidy round the dining room too as we have Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced Bouquet) aka my mother (family joke related to UK telly programme) and stepdad coming in about an hour lol, oh well, no rest for the wicked!!!

Thanks for stopping by everyone and here's wishing you all a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Hugs
