Happy MELINA Day!!

Yes, it's October 5th and the 5th of the month brings us honoring another Crafty Gal...but this month we not just honoring someone in our blog group....but our owner!!  Yes, it's Melina!!!!  As you know, we are to make a card that reflects the style of honoree...or reflects them in some way.  

Melina is such a special woman.....she's a wife, mom, business owner, crafter....and one of the most genuine people I know.  She is full of life and - well, a great example of a Christian woman.  

Melina is a scrapbooker and card maker....  check out her blog:  Crafty Scrapper

When I was looking through Melina's blog trying to figure out what card I was going to CASE, I just couldn't decide.  I don't know of anyone who does the CAS style as well as Melina.  And nothing I did would even come close to her.  So then I started thinking about Melina herself.....and one word kept coming back into my mind.  This is a card that I recently made for a swap and I didn't know when I was going to post it - but it's perfect for right here...because Melina is a woman who is pure (thus the white), creative and has so many different hats she wears (the layers and textures)...and as for the one word...well, I think the card speaks for itself.  I love you my friend and I hope you like the card I am posting in honor of you.

Oh my goodness! I am in tears. You have honored me so. Thank you for the kind words and the beautiful card in my honor. I don't believe I live up to your wonderful words, but thank you none the less. You are a great crafty friend Zella. Thank you for being a part of the Crafty Gals blog group! :)
