MIM#172 Time for a Story with Meljen's Designs

Hi everyone. Not only is today the start of the last Linky Party for 2013 at Make It Monday, but it is also my darling husband's birthday!!! Today, he is two years older than me, lol. Only for the next 4 months though!
Have you all had a wonderful time with family and friends over Christmas? It's nice to be back blogging after having a couple of week's off. I feel I owe it to my hubby to keep the house clear of my craft things for at least a couple of days before and after Christmas! I had to make my DT card for 613 Avenue Create and also this one so out came the bits and pieces. If you want to scroll down, you can check out yesterday's DT card and keep reading this one and see if your card has been chosen as a Pick of the Week from MIM#171.
Congratulations go to Emily as the featured artist from the last linky party and also to Valerie as the winning commenter!
