Sundays with Crissy

Good Morning!

Happy Sunday to you! Hope your weekend is going well and you've been able to relax and do what makes you happy! Today is the first challenge over at Sundays with Crissy and I'm a guest this week! A big thanks to Crissy for having me and some of the other Whimsy Stamps designers on board for her very first challenge!

The challenge this Sunday is called "Make it a Combo" and Crissy would like you to interpret that however you like, maybe combine techniques or coloring mediums, or combine this challenge with other challenges. The one rule, to be eligible for prizes, is that you must use a digital image designed by Crissy herself. You can buy Crissy's digital images at Squigglefly now and starting tomorrow at Whimsy Stamps

For my card, I've used the new Gift Horse image which will be available at Whimsy tomorrow morning at 9am EST! I love this sweet and fun horse!

I've used Copics on the image and then added some Stickles here and there for shimmer. I've used some new Green at Heart BG papers with hot pink and orange card stock. All of the edges were stitched on the sewing machine. For my combo, I've used both stripes and spots as well as combining Crissy's challenge with some other challenges. To finish off this card I embellished with ribbons and bows and some buttons. The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs' new digital stamp line at Whimsy, also available tomorrow!

This card fits the challenges at:
Creative Cottage: Buttons and Bows
Simon Says Stamp: Card for a Child
Tellen's Place: Anything Goes
Kitchen Sink Stamps: Square Card
Polly Craft Challenges: Anything Goes

Thanks for dropping on by today! Hope to see you again tomorrow for our Whimsy Stamps new release party blog hop!

Happy Stamping,
