A Tribute for Melissa Lane





The wonderful STAMPlorations is hostessing an event in tribute to Melissa Lane:


Last October 2, Melissa Lane passed away. She was a talented cardmaker/crafter/artist, a mother of 4, wife, and servant of Jesus. Melissa loved to garden and she loved photography. Her favorite color was red, and she loved butterflies -- so much so that many of the cards and other projects she made had butterflies in them.

My heart goes out to Melissa's family.  I made this card especially for the event:


Melissa was our January 2017 Guest Designing over at Coffee Loving Cardmaker's.  I was inspired by her use of blue.  I started off with the STAMPlorations Bubbles Stencil in Wild Honey Distress Oxide.  The coffee cup is by STAMPlorations - And Coffee by The Bee's Knees.  It's been watercolored with Peerless watercolors.


The heat embossed butterfly is from Reverse Confetti's Butterfly Dreams.  The sentiment is from SugarPea Designs Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set.


I'm looking forward to seeing all the butterfly creations that link up.  What a wonderful way to tribute Melissa.
