June's Winners, and Saying Goodbye

June's Tags Challenge winners announced at the end of this post.

The Sundays With Crissy Challenge is coming to an end.  The June challenge was our last one.  I really can't believe it has been going for two years and three months!  What a fun ride it has been!

A big HUGE THANK YOU to all the members of my super-fabulous design team, Crissy's Crew, who have given of their time, talent, and loyalty to create cards and projects using my art work.   What a truly great bunch of gals each of you were to have on my team.   I'm so grateful for all you gave to this team and to each other - you have been supportive, positive, and encouraging to have around.  Thank you for using your talents to promote my art -- what a gift you all are to me.  I will miss your presence!

Special thanks to Sarah, who kept this challenge afloat and stepped up to the plate when mine was too full to run this ship.  Because of you, we could keep this thing going for that much longer.  Thank you  Sarah, you've been my right arm through all this!  I deeply appreciated your organizational skills and people skills too, not to mention, your memory, which took up the slack when mine went AWOL! I know I couldn't have kept it going without you.  You are a gem!

And thank you to my followers and participants of this challenge.  It was truly a joy to see your creations and to know you wanted to be linked up to us through the challenges.  It touches my heart to see your enthusiasm to participate with us!

I will miss this challenge, but I also know my energies are needed elsewhere now.  It was fun to dream about creating this challenge blog, fun to implement the ideas I had for it, and even more fun to see them come to life through the team and participants!

I hope to keep illustrating stamp images, both digital and rubber for Whimsy Stamps for awhile yet, so you aren't getting rid of me entirely.  :-)  In case you haven't seen the Whimsy Challenges, here's a link for you:  

And now onto the final winners for Sundays With Crissy, from June's Challenge of Tags or Tickets.  I decided to pick 2 winners for this last time around.  The following 2 participants (chosen by from June's challenge get to pick five free digital images from any of my digital image collections.  Will the following 2 winners please contact me and I'll let you know how to go about receiving your prize: 

Congratulations Sandy and Rina!  Please email me!

And one last time, here are the recipients of the Artist's Choice Award! I was really blown away by the cards I saw this month and just could not narrow this list down any further.  Each of these cards are amazing works of art!  Please grab your trophy from the side bar and display it on your blog!  Congratulations, all of you! And thank you for playing!

Well this is it! It is time to say farewell!  Take care and God bless you!
- hugs to all, 

p.s. from Sarah--I have loved being part of this team and am so thankful I had the opportunity to promote Crissy's art and work with so many wonderfully talented women!! Crissy has become a dear friend and has blessed my life in so many ways. I will miss the team and the blog but I'll still be around in blogland. I am hanging up my card making hat for awhile and am returning to my first love (craftwise) and that's scrapbooking. So if you tune into my blog you'll see some of my recent (and not so recent) layouts with a card or two here and there. Blessings to you all and thanks for playing along with us here at Sundays With Crissy!!
