Challenge #20 K.I.S.S.

I am excited to make my first post as part of Crissy's design team.  This month's challenge at Sundays with Crissy is K.I.S.S. - keep it simple stamper.  This challenge was - well challenging for me as I am one to add ribbone, flowers, pearls, etc to my cards so it was nice to step outside of my box a little.

The image I used was - Crissy Armstrong's - Back to School Bart
Image colored with copic markers.

Please stop by Sundays with Crissy to submit your K.I.S.S. challenge - up to 3 submissions allowed per challenge and the winner will win 5 of Crissy's digital images.

I'm back!

Hello all!  I promise I have not completely fallen off the face of the earth.  I have been crazy busy with my nieces sweet 16, but now that I am done with that I am ready to get back into crafty mode.  I have a few exciting announcements, but first here are some pictures from the party.

Okay - now for some exciting news! 

First - I have been invited to stay on with If the shoe fits.....scrap it!  I have had an amazing 6 months with them and cannot wait for all that will follow!

Second - I have been chosen to be a design team member for Sundays with Crissy.  I simply love her images and cannot wait to play!

Finally - I have decided to open up an Etsy store!  So stop on by and check me out!    My store is Chic Expressions - Cards & Gifts and you can find me here - new items being added often. 

O.K. - I am back to crafting!  Well sleep first, then crafting...ha ha!
