Follower Reward!

Please scroll down to the post below this one to see how you can try out for my design team!

I feel honoured to have over forty followers already on this new challenge blog and I wanted to surprise one of you with a reward for your faithful kindness!  So I have chosen a random winner of this Spellbinder die set from my list of followers!  Since the followers are not numbered, and I didn't know how to do that fairly, I decided to print off everyone's name, mix them up in a container, and get my hubby to randomly choose one.  The name he drew out was 
Dawn Edwards!  
Congratulations, Dawn, you are the first person to win a prize off of Sundays with Crissy!  Please contact me with your mailing address so I can get this off to you!

Design Team Call! (with an exciting edit added!)

Welcome to my brand new CHALLENGE BLOG!!!  And welcome to the very first post! (exciting edit added below!)

I am going to run a bi-weekly challenge starting Sunday April 11th for all you crafters out there who would like to take part.  A new challenge will be posted every second Sunday. I will be offering up blog candy once a month too!   On the fourth Sunday of every month, I will choose a random winner from all the challenge participants of that month! 

So what I need is a few crafters who would be willing to form a design team with me, to help with this fun and exciting venture!  Here's what I am looking for:

Crafters who
- have a blog and would be willing to use it to promote this challenge
- love to use my illustrated images in their projects
- are skilled at and love to colour (any medium)
- would be willing to do two projects per month for my challenge (could possibly combine with other DT work and/or other challenges)
- would be willing to take a turn at commenting on the posts links people leave
- would be willing to take turns hosting a challenge

As a DT member you would have your pick of any of my digital stamps - as many as you can use!


 Make a new project with one of my digi images and try to impress me with your colouring and crafting skills!  Then send me an e-mail.  Make sure your e-mail includes all of the following:

-  your reason for wanting to be on my design team

-  a link to your blog post displaying your new "try out" project

-  a wee bit about yourself (I'd like to get to know you!)

-  info on any other DT work you do

Please grab this blinkie for your blog too, and link it back to this post!  Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs has been helping me with the graphics for this blog and just in case you have trouble getting it to "blink", she left you the code on the side bar.  She is a dream to work with, btw.  If you need any graphics, I highly recommend her. 

The deadline for the call will be April 30.   Looking forward to seeing your creations! Bless you!


I also have another exciting announcement to make!  Whimsy Stamps is planning to open up a brand new line of DIGITAL STAMP images in April!! Whoo-hooo!  and Yours Truly will be drawing some of them, as well as their other current contributing artists Katie Sowa, Denise and Kevin Lynn and Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs!  We are teaming up to make a whole new digital line for Whimsy and I can hardly wait to show you what we have planned!  The release date is planned for April 12th and we'll have some sneak peeks leading up to that date.  And Denise has a really cool blog hop planned on the 12th to kick off the new line.  Of course there will be yummy blog candy up for grabs as well, so mark your calendars! You won't want to miss it!!
