Phindy's Place Friday - 100th Challenge Blog Hop

Good morning everyone, TGIF!  I am super excited today as it is the first day of spring break!  An entire 10 days of no alarm clock, lunches, homework, etc.  I know you all know what I am feeling!  It's been a loooong year and I cherish every break I get!

Now, onto the second reason I am super excited, another celebration!  I am such a lucky girl to be part of so many wonderful companies who are celebrating this week!  That's right, it has been a week full of celebrations! Today at Phindy's Place we are celebrating our 100th challenge with a blog hop!  Woohoo, now you get to travel around and see all the DT's fabulous projects in this wonderful hop.  AND, there are of course prizes involved!  What would a blog hop be without prizes?!  As you travel around you will see that several of our design team members are offering prizes and there will be a prize at the end of the hop!  How can you win that prize you ask, one random winner will be chosen from our challenge entries to receive the blog candy!  PLUS, we are also having all our regular challenge prizes, how great is that!  The blog hop will run congruent with our challenge so you have until next Friday, April 13, to hop along, comment and enter your project!

What is our challenge this week, well it's anything AS LONG AS you use a Phindy's Place image!  Trust me, Phindy has so many WONDERFUL image to choose from that you're sure to find something you like if you don't have one already!

For my project I chose one of Phindy's newer images, Bunny Love.  I just new I had to have her as soon as I saw it.  I made an Easter card to give to my grandparents.  I am going to make one more using this image for my grandmother.  I have been incredibly blessed in my life to have such amazing grandparents and I try to think of them whenever I can!

I made a window in the front of my card so you could see the Easter sentiment inside.  It didn't photograph as nice as I would have liked it to, but here it is!

Materials I Used on My Project:
Copic Markers - C3, C1, CB, RV25, RV23, RV10, E35, E34, E30, E11, E01, E000, E0000, YR24, YR21, Y23, Y11
SU Faith and Hope Easter sentiment
Craft Smart Easter sentiment
Spellbiner's dies
MS border punch
MS rose leaf punch

Here's a close up of my colored image.

Just in case you missed someone, here is the blog hop list below!  I hope you enjoyed our hop and can't wait to see what you create for our challenge!
