I've had several surprisingly inspirational days, and made another new card this afternoon. The theme for the Saturday Challenge is "Animal Antics" for which I found a really cute sketch from Sketch Saturday. This is the card I made: This is the sketch: I used brandless paper from a local store that sells just about everything from socks to staplers. With some creativity one can find incredible ideas for a variety of hobby purposes. But they also had this wonderful paper, which I use quite a lot for my cards. The stamp is called "Embrace" from Penny Black. Thanks a lot everyone for your kind messages which I really enjoyed reading!

Welcome to my brand new blog! A few days ago I discovered the great world of blogs about making cards. They gave me so much inspiration that I decide to make my own blog. My name is Mélanie but some of my friends call me Milnie, which is why this blog is called Milnie Creations. I hope that you can find some inspiration here. Thanks a lot for visiting and I hope to see you again!
