#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!

Simonne combined flowers and brads.  Images used: Hang In There Turtle and Mark Twain quote sentiment. 

Patricia combined ribbon and lace.  Images used: Maya Blowing Bubbles and Children sentiment
From Denise: She combined dotted and striped ribbon as well as challenges.  Images used: Gift Horse and Happy Thoughts sentiment

Here is Rowena's.  She has combined the image of Pebbles the Cat with To Err sentiment:
Marley combined different designer papers.  Images used: Hang In There Turtle and Hang in there sentiment

Here is Ann's:  She combined the image plus the sentiment on the same panel and she combined several challenges:
Lisa combined textures: metal, twine, plastic and paper
Sue combined a ribbon with a charm:

Stacey combined two designer papers:

Here's Debbie Eastman's.  She combined the image with the sentiment on the same panel:

Deb Routledge combined the digital image and sentiment with a rubber stamped sentiment: 
 Erin has combined flowers with punchies:
Chris Olsen used a combination of stitching patterns and designer papers. 

And from Yours Truly.  I combined ribbon with a Spellbinder border die:

If you're still with me, you're a trooper!  Thanks for hangin' in there!
