Sundays With Crissy Challenge #26--Birthdays

Hi Everyone!! Welcome to my blog--so glad you stopped in today!! It's challenge time at Sundays With Crissy and this month it's all about BIRTHDAYS!! I recently stocked up on some of Crissy's rubber images (Whimsy Stamps) and here is the first one I had the opportunity to ink!! The image is called "Tippy By The Tail"!!

I am currently in the process of making 20 cards for a school fundraiser and this is card #1 of the bunch--only 19 more to go!! The goal is to use all Crissy Armstrong (Whimsy) images--both rubber and digi, so over the coming months you will get to see what I did!! This is a boy birthday card, hence, the lack of flowers and bling LOL!! I just love Crissy's tigers (my faves actually) they are such fun to colour!!!

This was my first attempt at doing clouds with copics and I like the way it turned out!! I just used B0000 and C2 with the colourless blender. I love the way the clouds add depth and dimension to the image. Sorry my photos aren't great--the image looks way better in real life!!

Well that's it for me!! I'd love to see you play along with our challenge too. All you have to do is make a card or project(incorporating stamps) with a birthday theme and upload it to our blog--GO HERE for upload instructions!! You could win 5 free Crissy Armstrong digis of your choice too, if you are picked in our random draw at the end of the month!! If you use one of Crissy's images, digital or rubber, from any of the companies she has drawn for, you will be entered twice in our draw!! Although we'd love it if you used one of Crissy's images, it is not necessary to do so in order to play along!! We only ask that you limit your entries to three and that you keep your cards family friendly (i.e. no pin ups or suggestive images).

Thanks for taking a look!! Have a great day!!
