HAPPY LELA DAY!!!!!!

It's June 5th and that means it's time to celebrate another "Crafty Gal"!  This month is special for me because the person we are celebrating is not just an online friend.  I am blessed to live close enough to Lela that we can meet every so often.  Our lives are busy and sometimes it seems like such a long time since we have seen each other...but when we meet up again it's like we just saw each other last week!  I can't tell you how much I admire, respect, appreciate, and value Lela.  She's such a fantastic person - so down to earth and honest.  And she has heart of gold! 
 
So the idea of celebrating a "Crafty Gal" is to head to her blog and CASE a project or make something that is inspired by her.  Lela is so amazing that she doesn't just have one blog - she has TWO: Lela's Crafty Corner  ..... and.....Living, Loving, Laughing 4 Life
 
What you learn about Lela from her blogs is that she is not only a card maker but she loves to scrapbook.  Lela's life is full of family, friends, work, faith...and she has even found time to squeeze in school too!  I told you she's amazing!!!!
 
Instead of making a card based on one of hers....I made a card inspired by her.  When Lela and I meet up (and it's always a trio because my hubby comes along too), we meet at a coffee shop.  While I can't stand to drink the stuff  and always order tea instead - Lela LOVES her coffee!  I knew what image I wanted to use for Lela's card.  The image is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers and used some papers I had in my stash from past swaps.
 
 
 
 And yes, this is Lela's card....if it hasn't made it to her mailbox yet then it will be there tomorrow.  It's and invite for coffee because I'm missing my friend.  Hope to see you soon!

I'm also submitting this card for a couple "Anything Goes" challenges:

AAAHHHH!!! I'm SCREAMING with DELIGHT! What a special, special friend you are to me Zella. Your goodness and friendship is so uplifting. I absolutely LOVE our coffee/tea dates and it's so special to me that you chose that for your card this month. What's even MORE wonderful is that it arrived in my mailbox today! How blessed I am to know you (and your DH) and get to spend time with you. A Date MUST be in our plan soon
