Make It Monday #98 - with Meljens Designs


Happy Monday to you!
It's a bit of a dreary one here today but that is not going to dampen my excitement for this week's 

The weekly linky party where anything goes every week!!
(as long as you have used paper somewhere on your project)
For my card this week I have used a sweet little image from our sponsor

This layout was inspired by my lovely and super talented teamie 

I loved how she found an alternative way to use the Stampin' Up! decorative label.

You can see her card here

That is exactly what I love so much about the Make It Monday linky party.
The sharing of ideas and inspiration! Thanks Lisa, I never would have thought to use the punch in this way.

This week over at 
we are being sponsored once again by the ever fun and cute Meljen Designs Digital Stamps!

Absolutely fantastic project!! I love the way Mrs A has creted this from recycled materials. Just brilliant.
