It's A Celebration!!

So, if you haven't already heard about Melanie Muenchinger's Blogaversary Extravaganza, where have you been??LOL!!! Here are some details!!

"Please go help Melanie Muenchinger celebrate a year of blogging and stamp designing over at her blog “Hands, Head and Heart”. Melanie and her guest designers will be sharing cards and projects from all her sets released through Gina K Designs this past year and prizes will be up for grabs every day! Sponsors include, Gina K Designs, My Favorite Things, Scor-pal, Paper Temptress, and Melanie herself, who is donating, among other goodies, a brand new box of Copic Ciaos! There will be also be challenges, contests, and a Who’s Who “Where are the Now?” on several of her past contest winners and guest designers! Come join in the fun and help spread the word, see you there!"

Sounds AWESOME right?? I thought so too!! So, if you don't remember, I was one of Melanie's very first Guest Designers, and I am still to this day HONORED to have been given the chance to work with her for an entire month!! Not only that, I got to room with her in Texas when I went there for the Arlington Shoebox Swap, which more fun than you can even imagine...completely exhausting, but fun!!

I made this card awhile back, but I have never shared it here. It is super special to me, so I have no clue why I haven't but never the less, here it is!! This is the card that I made for my sister to send out as her birth announcements. It is pretty simple, but like I said, it was super special to me. I had to go with something simple and easy(because I made 70 of them), so I decided to use Lauren Meader's Baby Onesie tutorial. I used Georgia Pacific White cardstock for the base. I stamped my frog's from Just So Hoppy with Black Stazon ink and then colored them in with my SU markers. After coloring the frogs, I ran the base through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. Using her tutorial, I added the scallops on the neck and legs. The balloons were stamped on Bashful Blue DSP and then cut out and glued on. Easy Peasy right!! After making 70 of these, I now have carpel tunnels and I had to replace my circle punches...nice.

Well, that is it for me now!! Be sure to check out the other designers that are helping out as well as Miss Melanie herself!!
