A happy birthday hop!

Hi friends! (If you are looking for the big 1000 sheets give-away please scroll down.)

Today the ATS girls are blog hopping to celebrate Christine's birthday! Christine is the wonderful illustrator of CC Designs images and co-owner of the All That Scraps store. Happy Birthday girl! :)

The hop starts at the ATS blog and if you've arrived here from Pam S.'s awesome blog then you are in the right place. We are so glad you hopped over to see Christine's birthday eye-candy!

What can I say? Without Christine there would be no Sweet November Stamps. She is the one who saw something in those first few drawings that I posted and took a chance on turning my crazy imaginings into rubber stamps. And for that I will always be completely grateful to her. Christine is an inspiration and a wonderful person and mentor that I look up to in so many ways. The least I can do is wish her all the best on her big day today... hope it is the best one yet Christine! ♥ :)

And I thought this card would be fitting as I combined a couple of the SN Fairwees with Christine's Swiss Pixie Bouquet Basket. Not only are her characters super cute but I think Christine has some of the best accessory stamps out there... I just love using them with so many different stamps.
Oh, and I've gotta give Kiara a shout out because she totally inspired me to add the tiny butterfly to Emaline's hair... that girl is SO creative. Thanks Kiara! :)

Ok, so your next stop on the hop is Rach's fabulous blog. Enjoy the hop and if you ever get lost along the way just check out the master list over on the ATS blog. Thanks for stopping by!
