Exciting Announcement & BLOG CANDY!

Hello Stampers and welcome to my blog! I am Melissa Davies and I am beyond excited to be part of the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team!


For this Edition, I will be sharing duties and alternating weeks with Carrie, who you met yesterday. Wasn’t her organizer fantastic?! What a fun and creative way to stay organized! It makes a great gift for the holidays, don’t you think?

Speaking of the Holidays, doesn’t it seam that they sneak up on us a little sooner every year? It just so happens that my card for today features the same stamp set Carrie used for her project yesterday – Everything Eleanor. This stamp set is quickly becoming one of my top “fav’s”! When you pair it with Carrie’s project, not only do you get a bigger “bang for your buck”, but you can get a head-start on your Holiday gift-giving, too! YOU’RE WELCOME! :o)

Oh, this is stunning! I would have never dreamed of using this set for the holidays. Thank you so much for thinking outside the box and showcasing this great stamp set. Your card is so pretty. I bet changing out the dsp and sentiment with the same flowers would give you an all occassion card in a snap! Wonderful inspiration!
