Sundays with Crissy Challenge #20--K.I.S.S.--Keep It Simple Stamper

Hi Everyone!

I'm so excited! My very first post for the "Sundays with Crissy" Design Team is now LIVE! Little 'ole me!... On Crissy's blog!... You have to go see!...  -  HERE!!
(But make sure you come back!)


Well? What did you think?? ;)  Fun, huh?
(You can see how I came to be on Crissy's Team in my previous post!)

So now I get to share it with you right here...  my very first card as a Crissy Crew member! Talk about a dream come true!

There is a new challenge every month at Sundays with Crissy. The challenge for the month of August is K.I.S.S. -- Keep It Simple Stamper!
Tricky, right? I had to slap my own fingers to stop myself adding all the yumminess that we card-makers love! (Though I did sneak in just a tiny bit of bling and flowers.... Because after all this IS my very first card for Crissy - and it couldn't be nekkid!)

I also decided to take 'K.I.S.S.' literally, and used Crissy's absolutely adorable digital image "Nose to Nose", from Whimsy Stamps. This gorgeous little girl giving an 'Eskimo Kiss' to her puppy looks so much like my beautiful niece Ava that I totally fell in love with her!


I used my sweet My Mind's Eye "Stella & Rose - Mabel" papers with just simple brown borders. The sentiment was from Create with TLC... I added my cheeky bit of bling and voila - done!

So now it's your turn... I'd love you to hop back over to the Sundays with Crissy blog and play along too - You can enter your creation at Sarah's Post - HERE-!

Thank you all for sharing this with me, and hope you all have a fabulous week!

Love & Hugs,

Stamp: Images - "Nose to Nose" by Crissy Armstrong, from Whimsy Stamps, Sentiment - Create with TLC .
Ink and Colour: Images: Printed, Colored with Copics
Paper: Cardstock - CM, DP - MME 'Stella and Rose' Mabel
Accessories: Spellbinder Nestabilities - Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles, Fancy Tags, Mounting foam, Pearls, Roses and Sweetheart Blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts.

This is so sweet Shannah, I love your colouring and layout design! And you're too funny - didn't want it to be nekkid -- I love your sense of humour!! It IS truly hard for most of us to do simple cards isn't it!! But you did fantastic. Your first post on the Crew is fantastic too! I'm just so glad you are on my team GF!
