Happy Birthday Christina!

Happy Birthday Christina!  There is a special blog hop today for my friend Christina MacLaren from Sea Glass and Papercrafts blog.  The first time I saw Christina's name was on the CASE Study Challenge Blog.  Christina was on the design team and always made such gorgeous creations -  I never thought we'd be on the same team together one day!  I was so happy later to get to know her better through the 12 Kits group.  Christina has a beautiful style - I'm so jealous of her ability to stamp everything perfectly every single time and her beautiful stitching - just enough in all the right places.  

I know Christina is an Indiana girl who loves the ocean. I always imagine her in New England surrounded by her favorite things.   Decisions, decisions. ....   a sea side card, or something more home spun?  I went with a comfortable blue jean pocket filled with pretty flowers!   So which stamps to use?  Had to go with the WPlus9 - they always remind me of Christina since she always does such amazing things with them.  I'm pretty sure they are some of her faves!   Special thanks to Joyce for organizing the hop and making us all look good!!    AHEM... You know I'd be a day late without you (maybe with you too!)    : )
Here's a list of all the ladies who have projects featured today to honor Christina - you can hop on to the next person or even start at the beginning.  Either way I hope you will wish Christina a beautiful day!

Drop dead gorgeous. I just love this--it is perfect for Christina. Those bright flowers are perfectly stamped, and I love the pocket--so cute.

A very gorgeous card for Christina! Such pretty colorful flowers!!!

Tracey McNeely said...

Oh Jeanne this is so beautiful for Christina! The fact you used WPlus9 for her card is perfect.

Cathy Weber said...

Seriously I don't know how you stamp everything so perfectly. The flowers look like store-bought embellishments...perfectly centered, not blips or blops on any of them! Great idea putting them into the denim pocket and that denim patterned paper in the background goes perfectly with the stamped pocket!

Sharron said...

Wow, those flowers are so perfect to use with the pocket and the colors are gorgeous! Love the denim and lace. You made such a really wonderful card for Christina!
