On October 2nd, Melissa Lane (https://honeybeelane.wordpress.com) 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.
She was a valuable part of STAMPlorations – in the 2 years we were blessed to have her on the Mixed Media team, she created some of most gorgeous mixed media projects around and she shared her knowledge through the tutorials she wrote.
If you knew Melissa when she was alive – maybe you were on the same design team(s) or you were bloggy friends. However you knew her, we’d like to invite you to join us in celebrating her life by creating a butterfly card in her memory.
You may blog about the card you make as a tribute to her or not, but either way, you can add your card to Melissa’s Butterfly Gallery that will be found on the tribute post. The linky will be open until October 31.
And should you wish Melissa’s family to have your card, you can mail it to the address below. Shery Russ (STAMPlorations owner and Melissa’s friend) will collect the butterfly cards, put them in a box, and mail them to Melissa’s family.
Mail your butterfly cards to:
20147 Road 192
Strathmore, CA 93267
This is my tribute card to Melissa, who loved butterflies. I found this particular sentiment perfect for her card. My very deepest condolenses go out to her family and friends.
