Tribute to Melissa

Today I'm joining in the Tribute for Melissa Lane of honeybeelane, being held on the STAMPlorations blog.


Melissa sadly and suddenly passed away on Oct. 2nd.  This tribute it to honour her and at the same time let her family know how much she was loved in the crafting community.

I worked with Melissa on the same design team for a year in 2015.  She was always positive and upbeat.  Melissa happily shared her love of her family, along with her amazing talents.  She was a shining light and will be missed.

Melissa loved butterflies, so I have made a card featuring a butterfly on a red (one of Melissa's favourite colours) and purple background.  I will be sending the card to the family via Shery's generous offer to collect cards and forward them on.

If you knew Melissa, please join in.  The linky is HERE.  There are also instructions for mailing the cards to Shery if you would like to do so.

Thank you.
