#2 Dots

Welcome to my second challenge at Sundays With Crissy!  I was a lucky, lucky girl this week --  seven members of the very talented Copic Creations team and Melanie Holtz of the Krafty Girls agreed to be my Guest Designers for this challenge!  I am sure you will be thrilled to see the cards they came up with today!
My challenge to you for the next two weeks is to make a card using "dots".  And it is open to your interpretation!  
Don't forget that only entries using one of my digital images from either Squigglefly or Whimsy Stamps are eligible for the blog candy (although you are welcome to join the challenge using any image, just to play along).  And since it is my first blog candy offer, it is a big one!  No less than fifteen Copic Caiao markers are going to one random participant from my first and second challenge! Winner will be announced in two weeks when I post my third challenge. 
See the side bar for the Rules of Play.

Also, my design team call for a permanent team is still open!  Deadline for that is midnight April 30 EST.  Scroll down to my first post to see the list of requirements if you are interested.

And now, without further ado, here are the samples from all my Lovely Guest Designers for challenge #2, "Dots":

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you get a chance to play along!

#1 Make It A Combo

Welcome to my very first challenge at Sundays with Crissy!!  I am very excited about this new challenge blog and I hope my joy is contagious! 
I have the wonderfully kind and talented design team from Whimsy Stamps joining me as my Guest Designers for my first challenge! I am so happy that so many of them wanted to join in the fun! What a nice bunch of gals! 
 To kick off my challenge blog today, I have purchased a very juicy yummy blog candy that will go to one lucky participant from over the next four weeks! And the candy is....  duh-duh-duh-duuuuh!...

A brand new set of Copic Caio markers, as well as a blender pen, flesh colour and sky colour; a total of FIFTEEN COPIC MARKERS!!!  
To be eligible to win, all you have to do is play along with this challenge (or the next one) using one of my digital images!   You can find my digital images in two places now, Squigglefly and Whimsy Stamps.  But if you are looking for my digi's at Whimsy, remember they aren't released until tomorrow (Mon. April 12). 
Make sure you follow the Rules of Play - they are posted in the sidebar.
You will have four weeks to get your entry in!  You can join in this first challenge, or the second one coming Sun. April 25, or both!  And you may post as many creations as you wish to enter! 
Winner to be announced on Sunday May 9th. 

The theme of my very first challenge is:
#1 Make It A Combo
You may interpret that any way you like!  You may combine multiple challenges, you may combine digi stamps with rubber stamps, multiple designer papers, multiple types of embellishments - really the sky is the limit.  And honestly, what project have we ever made that is not a combination of something!  Even combining colours counts! 

 I would like to present to you the gorgeous cards made by my lovely Guest Designers from Whimsy Stamps (thanks girls! Waving!) Today we are showcasing the four new digital images that I drew for Whimsy.  This is a sneak peek, but you won't have to wait very long - they are being released tomorrow (Monday April 12) and will be available then for instant download!  That is something I LOVE about digital images -- no more waiting for stamps to arrive! 
Take note:  Blog hop starts tomorrow (Mon April 12) with the Whimsy girls to launch the new digital release! As well as my four images, there will be new art from Katie and Kevin and some great sentiments from Ann too, so don't miss that! The hop will start at my personal blog, 

Now for the cards pictured below: all the images are by Yours Truly, and all but one of the sentiments are by the lovely Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs!
Sit back, scroll down, and enjoy the show!
