Tribute to Melissa Lane

Today I am joining in with the STAMPloration girls to honour our friend Melissa Lane.

Melissa unexpectedly passed away on the 2nd October.

Melissa was on the Design team for Addicted to Stamps and More! and Happy Little Stampers. Most recently she was a designer at STAMPlorations and made amazing cards and Mixed Media creations.

I was blessed to have met Melissa, her husband Chris, and her four children - Sarah, Ian, Hannah, and Abigail - at the HLS Craft Retreat in 2016.

I am truly lost for words about the loss of Melissa. Those who know me understand how I feel :)

For my tribute to Melissa (we both love butterflies), I decided to CASE one of her cards.

CASE of Melissa's card HERE

Here is my card -

When I saw this card, I knew it would be perfect. The red butterfly that had been gold embossed, the sentiment, the CAS creation. This is Just for You, My Friend :)

Instead of the wire, I used Embossing Enamel that I sprinkled on my paper and heated from underneath.

This is a scheduled post which goes live at 2am here in Australia. I will add it to the tribute post as soon as I can. For those of you wishing to create something, you can find all the details over at the STAMPlorations blog HERE. Thank you Shery for organising this :)

RIP, my friend xx
