Sunday's With Crissy #1 - Look Out Below!

Hi Everyone!

Well... I'm thinking I must be crazy to even THINK it... But I'm going to try out for the Sunday's with Crissy Design Team!! I know - what an absolute nutter!! THOSE gals are in a whole league of their own.
BUT... Then I thought about what a sign of respect it would be to show that I'd WANT to be on Crissy's team. (AND what a bloomin' marvelous excuse to play with as many of my fabulous old "Crissy images" as I can for a few days hehehe!)

There is a whole history here. Crissy will have no idea that her images ARE the reason I got into stamping and card making. I totally fell in love with her High Hopes images (and bought pretty much all of every new release!). I am so grateful for her cute, fun and uplifting images at a time in my life when I totally needed something cute, fun and uplifting! I owe Crissy Armstrong a LOT!

So, I asked a few of my old friends (i.e. Crissy's old images) to lend a hand, paw and hoof in my support, to maybe convince Crissy that though I'm no artist I sure do love her work, and would do my very best on her team!!

The first, and most dramatic entrance is Juliette's Leap of Faith! She decided to drop in from above to let Crissy know how much she loved being in my card!
Here she is in all her splendor....

Thanks so much Juliette!

Keep watch for more of my buddies popping in to show their support!

Love & Hugs,

Stamp: Images - High Hopes - Juliette's Leap of Faith
Ink and Colour: Images: Memento Tuxedo, Colored with Copics

I was away for the last bit of July and into August and didn't get a chance to comment on all the cards you submitted! :-( I was camping and had no internet. I wanted to tell you that you had me laughing out loud through your very well written and entertaining posts!! Before I left to go camping I was wondering if anyone new was going to submit anything. I was seeing a lot of the same people and so I figured everyone who was planning on submitting already had. I was (pleasantly) surprised when I got back, but like I said, too late to comment!!! Darn!! I am REALLY impressed with what I saw both visually and also in your writing!! I was touched too, knowing you were so inspired by my humble drawings... Shannah "you had me at hello"... :-) I hope you write to me soon! Sending you the biggest hugs ever!!! Note to self; next DT call, do not plan a camping trip so you won't keep people waiting for a response!!!
