A "Phindy's Place" challenge






It is the "first Friday" of "Phindy's " challenge blog with A LOT more Friday challenges to come! To start out, the new DT has decided to make this an "anything goes" with a Phindy image challenge! I chose this wonderful image called "softball girl". Can you just imagine...trying to pic a favorite Phindy image??? too hard for this girl! So....I simply HAD to pic this little softball girl cuz she reminded me sooooo much of my one dd when she was little! She played baseball, volleyball and basketball thru her school years and because she was this little tiny girl her whole life she always had to work her tail off! The little blond braids just got to me! I used my copics to color this up: G40,82- outfit+ Y21 and E33 hair+ T3- spikes with a little brown. Dp is BG and I used a few EK punches. Be sure to check out the other dt member's cards on their blogs! (links on my side bar) Phindy will be giving out some great blog candy too!!! Have a GREAT weekend! :)
