Make It Monday #103



Hi everyone, I've been sitting on some exciting news but I can finally let the cat out of the bag. A few weeks ago Michelle, owner of the weekly Make It Monday Linky Party, asked me to join her design team. I'm a big fan of this challenge where "Anything Goes" so I quickly replied YES to her email. ;-) The team has given me a warm welcome and I'm so appreciative. Thanks ladies! I am replacing Karen who recently stepped down from the design team so I have some big shoes to fill. I wish Karen all the best and want to thank Michelle again for the invite to join MIM. This is a humorous group so there will be a lot of chuckles along the way. Wish you could see me because I'm doin' a happy dance right now. :-)

My card features the Seafaring Seagull Frame, by our current sponsor Meljen's Designs Digital Stamps, and I colored my digi image with Copics. Stickles, antique linen distress ink and twine are the only embellishments on this CAS card. It was quick and easy to create which is one of the perks digi's can offer. It's great to have an all purpose card in my stash which I can use the next time an occasion pops up and I'm unprepared lol.

To see more inspiration using Meljen's Designs Digital Stamps head on over to MIM and check out the amazing creations by my teamies. You'll be inspired!

Love the nautical theme (and all of the blue!!) on this card! The twine mimics the rope in the image so well! I can't help but think of Finding Nemo when I see seagulls-mine!mine!
