If you came here looking for the monthly challenge, that is still happening, don't worry! Just scroll down and you'll see the latest post explaining all the challenge details!
I am putting out a call for new Design Team members! If anyone is interested, here is what you need to do:
1. Your entry must be a new project (no back-dated posts please) and use one of my images from any of the stamp companies I have drawn for. It doesn't matter if it is rubber or digital, as long as it is one of my illustrations.
You can enter as many times as you'd like. HINT: The more entries I see from you, the more serious you look about wanting a spot on my team. :-D
2. Please post the Design Team Call button on your blog and link it back to this post.
If you do not follow those two instructions your entry will be deleted!
As a member of Crissy's Crew, you will be expected to create only one card per month. You will be assigned a date to post every month and that will stay the same. On that date you will post your creation on your blog and on the Sundays With Crissy challenge blog. You will also be expected to leave comments on some of the cards that people enter into the challenge. You know how we all love nice comments!
In return you get to have any of my digital images you want and as many as you can use, free of charge. And you get the extra attention and friendships that go along with being on a great team of ladies!
I look for people who love my images. I don't want anyone to feel intimidated about trying out for the team! You don't have to have a thousand followers on your blog or to think of yourself as an expert colour-er to try out. Newbies welcome to try, don't be shy!! I am looking for people who love my images and who love to make cards. Because when you love what you do, it shines through in your art work. And enthusiasm is what sells it to someone else, not necessarily just mad colouring skills!
Link up your try-out creations using the Inlinkz option below. If you wish to combine your entry with this month's challenge theme of "Distressing" please feel free to do so!:

Welcome to my challenge blog!
Although this is mainly a card maker's challenge blog, you may enter any craft item you have made as long as you have used some form of stamping (rubber or digital)! Of course I would love it if you used one of my images from Whimsy, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, Squigglefly or Wags 'n Whiskers. However, it is not necessary to be eligible for the blog candy draw. But if you DO use one of my images, you will get entered twice!

Crissy Armstrong - Blog Owner
I draw illustrations for Whimsy Stamps where I have both a rubber and a digital collection. Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, Wags 'N Whiskers Stamps, Squigglefly, and High Hopes Stamps also sell my illustrations in either rubber stamp or digital formats. I work from home in lovely Canada where I live with my husband Mike and our two cutie pie mutts, Avro and Spitfire. Jesus Christ is my Saviour and Lord and I live to love Him.
Sarah Litterick--Blog and DT Coordinator
Hi, I'm Sarah and I live in SW Ontario, Canada with my husband, daughter, and two crazy cats. I have been an avid scrapbooker for most of my life and started making cards about 4 years ago. Most of my stamp collection at the moment is rubber but I have also fallen madly in love with digital stamps too!! I gravitate to using alcohol based markers to colour my images but also love to use Prismacolor pencils with mineral spirits too; sometimes combining both methods. I feel very excited, blessed and honoured to be a member of Crissy's Crew!!

My name is Cammi Boddie. I reside in Virginia Beach, VA where I work as a pediatric oncology nurse. I have been married to my amazing husband Shun for 6 years. He has been very supportive of my love of crafting. I started paper crafting about 2 years ago and it has been one amazing roller coaster ride since then. I love making handmade cards and personalized items for my friends and family. I am truly honored to be working with such an amazing crew here at Sundays with Crissy.
Hi, my name is Carole and I live in the UK. I’ve been crafting for about 5 years but since I discovered Copic markers I really haven’t looked back. Digi stamps are my latest favourite thing and I enjoy the challenge of having a new image to play with. I love being part of the crafting community, it really seems to bring out the best in us all, and I’m excited and very honoured to be a part of Crissy’s team.
"I'm Jane from the UK and I am a stay at home Mum to two gorgeous children who keep me entertained and busy. I have loved to draw, paint and create for as long as I can remember and soon became addicted to card making when I purchased a small kit 2 years ago. I have been incredibly lucky since I started my blog and am on a few design teams and made lots of special friends. I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of Crissy's team and to have the opportunity to work with her adorable images."
Hi I’m Linda. I am from the UK, but for the time being I live in Bahrain with my lovely husband Brian who works here, he is very supportive to my crafting adventures as I call them, which is bit of a task sometimes with all the mess I make in my craft room. I have always loved arts and crafts especially scrapbooking, altered art and card making but my adventures took a turn when I found stamping three years ago and was hooked straight away, I use all kinds of mediums but Copic and Pro Markers are my favourites.
"Hi everyone -- I'm Michelle & I live just outside of Milwaukee, WI. I'm married with 2 boys, 9 &12. I've been stamping for 6 years now & I LOVE cute images which is why I've been a fan of Crissy's since the day I met her. It means so much to me to be part of the Crew! My preferred way of coloring is colored pencils/Goo Gone but I do try desperately to use Copic Markers & even more desperately -- watercoloring! Thank you so much to Crissy & the team for having me!!"
I am mom to two adults and 4 fur babies, and have been a crafter forever. I started with rug hooking, crocheting, faux painting, and then ran my own tole painting business for years ( even cut my own pieces of wood ). Scrapbooking entered the picture about 14 years ago when I moved to Calgary. When Copics first came out I resisted - who needed another addiction LOL!!! - that lasted for a whole two months, and then I took a basic class and the rest as they say is history!! I became a Copic Certified Designer in April 2010 and LOVE everything about Copics, including experimenting with all kind of techniques, and passing my passion and knowledge on to fellow Copic lovers!!! I am so honored to be invited to join the DT at Sundays with Crissy, and am looking forward to getting to meet new people through the challenges.
“Hi! I'm Shannah and I live in the beautiful Hills region of South Australia. My wonderful hubby is a Police Officer, and we have one cat (ie demanding fur-baby) called Poppy. I love traveling, photography, talking and reading, and am happy as long as I'm learning something! I took up card-making about 3 years ago, and the very first stamps I fell in love with were Crissy's High Hopes cuties! So you can imagine how excited, nervous, and completely honored I am to be a member of Crissy's Crew! :)”
Hello, my name is Rosalien Zwackhalen and I live in the Netherlands. I’m married and we have 2 grown up children ( a daughter and a son ) who live on their own now. We also have 2 German Shepherds who are the greatest dogs in the world. I had a lot of hobby’s in the past but Scrapbooking and Card Making with rubber or digital stamps are my favorites. I discovered them a couple of years ago and I never loved a hobby as much as this one. Soon I started my own blog and joined some DT’s. I was so excited when I was asked to join Chrissy’s DT. I love her images and they are so great to color. And it’s so great to be part of this amazing and super talented DT.I hope I can inspire you a little with my creations, just like you all do to me with your creations.
I'm Doreen and I live at home in Sheffield in the UK with my husband Tommy. We have Three grown up children and two grandchildren. I am now retired from a long service of nursing and the spare time I found I had, made me look around for a hobby. I have been card making for about three years and absolutely love it! Promarkers are my favourite colouring medium. I am so excited and honoured to be part of Crissy's fabulous crew!
Hi! My name is Chris Olsen and I live in Bloomingburg, NY, with my wonderful husband, Scott, and two beautiful girls, Nicki and Meghan. I love everything crafty and began stamping about 3 1/2 years ago. I especially enjoy coloring and creating cards or 3D gifts for others. I use stamping as a hobby or way to escape. It has been a blessing to meet so many creative people in the blogging world and learn from them as well. I just love Crissy's drawings and I feel deeply honored and blessed to have the opportunity to work with her and this incredibly talented design team!
