This blog would not be a success without the help and great talents of each of these wonderful ladies on my team!  I am SO proud of them and SO LUCKY to have them designing for CC&CC!


My name is Cindy van der Velde, 39 years old and I live in Hellevoetsluis, The Netherlands. It is a small town approx. 30 km from Rotterdam. I live with my boyfriend, and I have no children. I work full time at a lawyers/solicitors office. I am appointed by the District Court as trustee of people with large debts. It is my job to help them regain a steady life. I meet people with a lot of problems, so card making for me is the utmost way to relax.

Hello, my name is Judy VanZandt. I'm a married mother of two 20 somethings and live in Colorado. Monday thru Friday you can find me working as Director of Finance for a 4 office Optometry practice but on the weekends, rest assured, I'll be in my craft room where I do a little bit of scrapbooking, a little bit of jewelry making and a WHOLE LOT of card making! Yes, I have to admit, I have an addiction. My addiction is card making!

My name is Anneke van Dijk, 52 years old and I'm living in Spijkenisse, South Holland, Netherlands. I am married to Jan and mother of four children and three grandsons. Caring for my family's circumstances and illness of my eldest son sometimes very intense. First I'm going to write a book and then making cards for me was a big relaxation and I spent here basically all my free time. More than three ago I started blogging, and therefore there is a world opened up for me. I noticed that I like a bit was stuck, it came or by circumstances at home. Then you can try new things. Now we're back in calmer waters, you are again open to new things. Just to challenge yourself to take a look at a very different way cards gives so much satisfaction. I learned so much in recent years, many new terms and techniques, (and I know they hear not all) just make the variation in the cards what I like. My health is not always optimal. And it is also time consuming to care for our foster (grandson) of 3 years.
And now I may as DT is in a very different way to challenge myself. In the future I would be happy with some ladies like to start a hobby / freubel club .. that seems very cozy. I think it's great to be part of the team. I am very happy that I chose and I think it's an honor that I can be part of the team. If you still want to know more about me or have you ask?
Love Anneke

Hello, my name is Diane Hover and I have lived in the state of Michigan all my life.  Between us, my husband and I have 4 boys and one daughter, and lots of grandchildren.  I love paper crafting and it consumes most of my free time.  I love all the styles of paper crafting and do however call my style "Mood", which means whatever I am in the mood for at the  I also am the 'hoarder' of many paper craft supplies.  When I am not paper crafting you can find me in my flower gardens (weather permitting) I just love the beauty of a flower garden!

And last but not least, me, Joanne.
Welcome everyone, so happy to meet you. Being able to express myself through art and crafting has always been a must for me, starting as soon as I could scribble with a crayon. I've dabbled in media of all types; water colors, acrylics, oils, sewing, counted cross stitch, stain glass and making miniature doll furniture and jewelry. But 8 years ago I met my “true love” with paper crafting, especially making cards. Now, for me, it has become an obsession I know you understand!  Another obsession I have is GOLF!  I LOVE it!  I have worked at golf courses and it really helped me get in a lot of practice to advance my game.
Running CC&CC is a a fantastic experience!  There are SO MANY awesomely talented ladies out there!  I am so happy to have such a FAB Design Team here at CC&CC.  

My motto is:
Without all of YOU, WE wouldn't be here!
