First Time Using Meljen's Designs

Hello stamping friends.  May I just say YAY... Monday is almost over!!  What is it about this day?  Always a tough one.  But, I made mine better by coming home tonight and making this card and for the first time, using a Meljen's Design digi image.  It was such a blast making this card, I can't wait for another chance to work with one of their images!

These darling little images have really grown on me and I've just been itching to work on one.  I decided to start with Teacup Mouse as my granddaughter, Madeline, has been requesting a rat as a pet.  Yep... you heard me right!!  Well... suffice it to say I've been a little hesitant about this!!!  Just doesn't seem right to have a rodent (for which I keep traps in one of my cabinets) in my home as a welcome addition!  Well... I've just about gotten around to saying yes.  Not yet, mind you, but probably soon.  {shaking head}.  hahaha!

Madeline is going through some really tough times, so this card is for her.  I am really pleased with it as it looks so crisp and clean to me.  I think she'll really love it!  Love you Madeline!  You really ARE my sweetie!

Beautiful card!


Beautiful card! I have to say that I used to have a rat for a pet... his name was "Ratzel" and he was awesome! But, I was grown up and living on my own! Rats are really great pets, but I can totally understand your hesitation, they can be kinda creepy! Good luck on that decision!
Thanks so much for joining us at Meljen's Designs this week! Good luck on the challenge!
