Happy Birthday CHRISTINE from All That Scraps

Today we are blog hopping to celebrate Christine’s birthday! Christine is our wonderful illustrator of C.C.Designs and co-owner of All That Scraps. Happy Birthday girl!!

The hop starts at the All That Scraps blog. If you have arrived from Ria Van Son’s awesome blog, you are in the right place. We are so glad you are here.

A few words from me about the sweet Christine. I only live about 45 minutes from Christine’s actual brick and mortar store. I went for a visit to the store a couple of years ago to pick up some goodies to use. I got to meet Christine in person and oh my what a treat it was. She is a sweetie pie. She took the time out of her busy schedule to show me around her store and actually take me in the back room to see how the “behind the scenes” stuff was run. I got to see how they print their own rubber stamps …. it was amazing. I want to thank Christine for making that day very special for me. I also want to thank her for always having faith in me and for giving me the opportunity to showcase her amazing images. Christine, you are one of the sweetest and kindest people I know. I hope this day is very special for you and that all your dreams come true. I love you girl. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

I have been in love with C.C. Designs images for a long time. Check out all my posts here that show everything I have ever done with Christine’s images, long before I came to be on the design team. It will start out with my current creations and go backwards in time to my first ever C.C. Designs card on November 25, 2009.

Here is the birthday card I made for Christine’s birthday today. I used several different items from the ATS store on this card. Here is a complete list.
