Better Late Than Never

I'm almost embarrassed to write this post today. 

See, back in December I won 3 digistamps from Crissy Armstrong. She has some of the best images; if you're not familiar with her designs, check them out here.  I already owned several of her stamps and had a difficult time picking just 3, but I finally did.

In emails back and forth, I found out she's not only a talented artist, she's also a wonderful, caring person and a fellow sister in the Lord. It was a Win - Win - Win.

I couldn't wait to print out the images and get to coloring. Which I did . . . right away...back in December. 

However, I just realized that I never posted even one of the cards I made using my new digistamps. So, here's the first card I made w w w a a a y y y back in January.  It's already out of my possession and in the hands of my "sister" (she isn't really, but we call each other that since we finish each other's sentences). At least I took pictures before I sent it to her.

Crissy, I'm sorry for not showcasing these stamps sooner. You know how excited I was to get them (I really was) . . . I guess life just happens sometimes.

The card is actually an easel card.

I just love these little happy fellas.  I added Stickles to their little poms.

On the inside, I left room at the top to write a little note.

Due to the new EUR VAT laws, the digistamps aren't available at this time. However, you can still purchase Crissy Armstrong rubber stamps through Whimsy Stamps.  Click here.
