Handmade Holidays Project One: Dedicated to Melania Deasy

I had a wonderful time making this card!  For TWO reasons. One, it is the first project for the Handmade Holidays by Latrice class I am taking. And second, because of my dear friend Melania Deasy! She is a wonderful inspiration to me personally and I am so glad that I have gotten to know her better! I was inspired by this AMAZING card and am humbled by her kindness towards me, so I wanted to dedicate this post and card to her! This card is out of the box for me…. I hope I did her proud!

And I wanted to give a shout out to all of YOU. Those that read my blog! You all truly mean the world to me and lift my spirits more than you know….

Sappy post today, I know! I’ll be back with something cute and quirky tomorrow, which means… Lawn Fawn of course! 🙂
