Challenge #21--Friendship--Sarah's Turn

Hello Sundays With Crissy fans!! Hope you all had a chance to check out our new permanent DT Members!! We feel so blessed to have these wonderful ladies on our team!! We also will be having a couple of guests pop in this month so stay tuned!!! We also would like to say goodbye and thank you to Lisa and Mary who are both stepping down. They have such great talent and will be missed!!

Now on to this month's challenge! This month our theme is FRIENDSHIP. I know some of you were feeling severely deprived with last month's SIMPLE theme so let 'er rip crafters, bring out the bling, the string, etc. but your card has to be about friendship--how easy is that??

Here's what I did for my card...

I used Crissy's fabulous image "Great Day to Fish". Don't you just love these two buddies?? I have seen a lot of cards coloured with prisma pencils on kraft paper lately and just had to try this type of media. Way before Copics came on the seen I used Prismacolor Pencils with Odourless Mineral Spirits quite a bit, so it was nice to go back and play with another media again.

I do apologize for the poor photography. I tried for about 3 hours to get some decent shots but nothin' doin'. UUUrrrrrggghhh. Anyway, I hope to put this project together in an "ABC" book one day that displays many of Crissy's beautiful images with alphabetic themes.You can check out the rest of the details on this project on my personal blog at Sally Cicada Designs.

No without futher are the winners of Crissy's Artist Choice Award, for last month's challenge with the theme of "K.I.S.S.--Keeping It Simple Stamper"!! These are cards that caught my eye for one reason or another, that I felt were the most impressive from the bunch! Ladies, don't forget to pick up your blog award badge on the sidebar for shining this month!!
