What a Glamorous Babe!

Hi all!
I'm posting my latest Mystery card! This mysterious image was toooooo funny!
I love it Carol! Thank you so much for hosting this round!
Have you ever seen a more glamorous image??? hee! hee!
 For this round, I made a 4x6 pocket card with a matching Kraft envelope (which I forgot to take a picture of). The image I colored with my Spectrum markers.
The card base is a 12x12 piece of card stock that I cut at 4", then I place the 4x12 inch piece of c/s on my Scor Pal and scored at 3" and 9" to make the opening in the middle of the card base. 
 I added some solid c/s to the middle of the card to hide where the patterned paper came together (there is a slight space if you don't score the base exact so this helps to cover any imperfections).
After I cut out the image with my Spellbinders die and Big Shot machine, I placed a piece of cornered kraft c/s behind it so when you lift the top up.......
 You don't see the ink that bled through when coloring.
I hid the sentiment behind the top lift of the card......
 Here's the inside of the card with the sentiment. With this striped fold, I made a pocket so that the sender can place money, a note or gift card in the card.
 The sentiment was plain white.....I decided it needed to be sprayed a few times. Of course, doing that meant I had to go over the font with a black gel pen to darken the words a little.
Here's a close up of the pocket. I just added some 1/8" scor tape to the left and right sides.

Well, that took quite a bit of explaining. LOL
I hope you will try this yourself!

Until next time...

Don't Forget Your Umbrella!

Here I am again, late as usual and again I apologize to all my crafty friends with whom these creations mean the most to.
Our last Dueling Darling kit was too cute! Darlene sent the kits for the Dazzlers. She sent two different images and well, I used them both. LOL
Here's what I created:
A 5x5 card....
 Darlene's kit was so bright and cheerful! Thank you Sweetie!
I loved using the patterned papers and rick rack, too fun!
So this card should have been on my blog last month on the 15th. Well, in true Melina style, it's not.
Now, I get to visit all my other Dueling Darling Sisters' blogs to see what they created for this rainy challenge!
Thanks for visiting my blog!
Until next time...

I'm Late Showing My Love!

Hello all!
My last Mystery image swap card.....well, pictures were took, the package was mailed and I received the swap cards back in the mail. BUT, the card never made it to my blog! Good grief, I'm so behind.
Oh well, so sorry you had to wait for this one, even though, there isn't much traffic to my blog lately since I haven't been keeping it up like I should, so I know there aren't that many that missed it. :(
But, I know my Mysterious Sisters missed it and for that I apologize to the group. I currently don't have home internet (I'm at my Mom's making my blog post today) we are at odds with our provider and trying to get a new one. Anyway, that is my reasoning for my tardiness. I hope all is well with my crafty friends!!!
Here's what I made with Barb's image she sent us last round.
 I loved coloring this image! That bear is the cutest!
I had fun with my punches too. :)
Here's the inside of the card. Very simple
Barb! Thanks for being our Mysterious hostess!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
Until next time...
