Hopscotch by Phindy



Here is my card for the Phindy Friday challenge this week..Hopscotch. If you havent seen Phindy's new summer digis you should take a hop over and see how cute they are! I look at this pic and it soooo reminds me of my childhood! My mother taught me how to play "jacks" and "hopscotch". We always played outside in the summer past dark with the neighbor kids. Those were some fun times- Spud, tag, run-the-bases, roller skating with a key to tighten your skates and riding my friends on the back of my bike. Guess I could go on and on. Hey,..did any of you think "transistor radios" were so cool when they first came out?? :) ha ha! Card deets: dp=magnolia ink, Copics, SB and SEWING...BTW...THATS the challenge this week! Faux or real! take your pic and join us for a fun time at Phindy's challenge blog!

LOVE this!!! I LOVE your stitching-will have to try something like this! Your DP is fabulous.

Yup, we share those memories-even though we didn't know each other back then. Oh, and the transistor radio---I bought my first one when I was nine-sold Christmas cards to earn the money! It was blue and came form Radio Shack!!!

Transistor radios, I used to hide mine under my pillow and listen to it when I went to bed. Gawd we are old.
Did you have Cousin Brucie where you grew up or was he just out of NYC?
