Today, we welcome our sweet and lovely

 designer Christine to the spotlight!

Hello Friends, it's Christine here! 
When Jo shared the exciting news about celebrating her sixth year of blogging at Jo's Scrap Shack, I began mentally paging through paper stacks, dies, and stamps to plan a special card. In my mind it was girly, floral, and layered with delicate cuts.  In reality, the card I needed was to celebrate the May birthday of one of my favorite guys ever--my dad.  I find masculine cards more challenging to make, but I am happy with the way this one turned out.   The circular image was cut right out of the middle of a sheet from a Tim Holtz stack....love doing that, but I end up with some strangely shaped scraps!

Thanks, Jo, for the privilege of being on the design team.  I started designing for Jo's Scrap Shack on  November 11, 2016,  and I was thrilled to be able to create a Veterans Day card for my first post.   I am constantly inspired by the team's creations and blessed by visiting the participants' blogs to see their entries each week.

Happy, Happy Birthday!

Thank you so much Christine!!!  Masculine cards are always a challenge I think for most of us. I know for me it is. I think you did a beautiful job with the design and paper choices. That cut out image in the circle is perfect because I can imagine that would be you with your daddy. I am sure he will love this and please tell him that I said Happy Birthday! I am blessed that I am able to call you my friend and I have enjoyed getting to know you and working with you for the past year in a half.  I  appreciate all your hard work and all you do for our team! Love ya bunches!!! xoxo
