So, on with the show..... this week our challenge for you  ...


As we approach the big gift-giving season, we want your creations this week to show gift-giving ... for any reason (Christmas, Birthday... any reason for giving a gift).. as long as a gift must be 'present' in the creation! (Bad pun, I know).   this week our challenge for you is to create with gifts and presents in the image or in mind ... I know easy, huh?   

Our challenge this week is sponsored by MelJen's Designs, who continues to delight us with magical images! Our MelJens prize is 4 uncoloured images.  Here's a little about Meljens Designs...

"My name is Melissa Jenkins and I have been an artist as long as I can remember.... I am inspired by everything around me.  Art is an uplifting thing for me, ad I love designing cute tidbits of art that make people smile. I draw all of my little creations by hand.  A lot of love goes into my art!  Each of my designs is sketched in pencil, inked with a black Micron pen, then scanned in and lightly cleaned up so it will look crisp when you print it.  I love inspiring crafters.  I am not very talented at making cards myself, so I LOVE seeing all of the beautiful things that you make with my digital stamps.  I couldn't ask for  a better blessing!"

One randomly drawn winner will receive their choice of four (4) uncoloured digital images from MelJen's Designs ...

We're so happy to showcase our sponsor's designs, and we hope that we can provide a little inspiration for you!  Feast your eyes this-a-way...

Jenee (using "Three Kitty Kings")

Jennifer  (using "Hot Apple Pie")
