Surprise!!!

Welcoming Melissa Jenkins to the HH family!

We are so proud and excited to be welcoming Melissa Jenkins to the High Hopes family! If you are not already familiar with MelJen's Designs, you are in for a treat, as she has a very unique "girly girl" style with swirls and hearts and sweet little ladybugs accenting much of her work.

Our design team has been having loads of fun the last couple of weeks as they have been quietly preparing for the second release of Dustin Pike images, and our first release with Melissa Jenkins images. We know we can always count on Dustin for some fun, funky, fabulous images that are great for all occasions, and adding Melissa to our family was a perfect fit as we felt we needed that "girly-feminine" touch!

We know you will find both Dustin and Melissa are personally as charming as the characters they draw. We are so totally enjoying working with them and excited to see what they come up with next!,


Thank you for stopping by to see what we are up to!

With Warm Wishes! ~ Tina-Marie
