Phindy's Place Friday - Happy Father's Day

Good morning everyone, I am back for my second post of the day.  Wow, the morning has just barely begun and already I have two posts under my belt, woohoo!  It sure is Friday, TGIF everyone!  While you are reading today's posts I am at work enjoying Field Day with a great group of kindergartners.  Field day is such an exhausting day for us grown ups but sooooooooooooo worth it as the kids enjoy every moment.  It really is a great day!

This week at Phindy's Place we are celebrating Father's Day!  In the United States Father's Day is just around the corner and now is the perfect time to pull out Phindy's male themed images and create the perfect card for your father, husband, or any other special male in your life.  But of course, we don't all celebrate Father's Day at the same time.  No problem, just create a male themed card and enter into our challenge for this week!  We just love when you play along!

For my card I used the Phindy's Place image, Fishing.  My little guy just found a fishing pole and daddy put a bobber on it and they have spent a little time fishing.  Of course, there isn't a hook or any bait attached but at 3 you don't know the difference and it's still a lot of fun to spend special time with daddy.

Materials Used for My Project:
Copic Markers - B97, B34, B93, B91, E53, E51, E50, E0000, E79, E77, E74, E70, E44, E43, E40
MS large border punch
Spellbinder's dies
Fish Buttons
Tan Pearls

Here's a close up of my colored image.

So, now we're looking for your male themed creations.  Create your Father's Day project or male themed card and enter it into our challenge this week.  AND remember, you don't have to use a Phindy's Place image but we sure love when you do.  Besides, you get a second chance to have your name entered into our random weekly drawing if you do!

Ooooops, I posted my card and forgot I used the sketch from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog.  That's how crazy my week has been. Soooooo, here's the sketch I used and I'll be entering my card into that challenge this week!

So glad you decided to stop by today,
