A Celebration for Melanie!

Melanie Muenchinger is celebrating two years, 700 post and 25 stamp sets for Stamp TV. Her blog, Hands, Head and Heart, is full of wonderful ideas. She is a designer/illustrator and Senior Design Team Member for Gina K Designs. Melanie has several prizes and you can check them out here. She is offering prizes. One way to win a prize is to make a card with your favorites set that she has created. My favorite set is A Year of Flowers. I love all the sentiments and the beautiful flowers. This set can be used in many ways for many occasions. You have until Monday 1/4 at 10:00PM CST to join in on the fun.
This rose is for Melanie. The sentiment says, "We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses." -Abraham Lincoln- I love that saying. It really is all about how we chose to look at things. I forget to often to rejoice in the good and focus on the thorns. That is why I love this stamp set. Just this one sentiment means so much to me.
Congratulations Melanie!
