Melanie's Blog Hop

Melanie Muenchinger is celebrating two years of blogging and illustrating for Gina K Designs, and today she has invited 25 designers and YOU to join the party!

I still remember the email from Melanie in July asking me to be her Guest Designer for Inspiration Mosaic (and yes, I still have it saved in my email files...) I am so excited to participate with this creative group and MADE time to get crafty with this fabulous set Inspiration Mosaic! With all of the holiday cardmaking, I hadn't used it in several weeks and went overboard...I made THREE cards (can you tell Linda is rubbing off on me??? LOL!)

This one just uses Inspiration Mosaic to show how all alone it is a GREAT set with so many possibilities! I simply stamped the grid on Fancy Pants Designs patterned paper and using my SAMJ stamped the sentiments, easy-peasy!

With this one I combined it with My Cuppa' Joe and some fun patterned paper.


And for this final one, I used some rub-on stiches to create a stitched background on my Mosaic and combined it with Melanie's Wee Tees stamp set.

So how does this involve you and some prizes????
