Phindy's Place Friday - Song or Movie

Good morning everyone, congratulations you made it to Friday!  The kids and I are off on a few errand this morning and then we will be coming home and cooling off inside the house.  The heat is supposed to reach 90 today and that is the beginning of where my heat threshold really begins to dwindle.  Now, I know some of you endure a lot hotter temperatures than this but, when you fluctuate between extreme heat one season and then extreme cold another, well, your body gets a little cranky.  Today's heat is the beginning of the cranky feeling but thankfully it isn't going to get to much hotter so our AC should be able to keep up!

Today at Phindy's Place we are starting a new challenge and this time around we want your projects to be inspired by a song or a movie.  I often have a difficult time time with this type of theme, I tend to draw a blank with the movies and songs I know.  You would think I don't know that many but, that isn't the case, my mind simply goes blank.  Don't worry, it happens often, you get used to it after awhile!

For my project I chose the movie The Bad New Bears.  Now, I know this is an oldie, but let's face it, a goodie and this little guy is just perfect for my project.  When you work with kids sometimes you tend to get images such as the Bad News Bears, The Sandlot and other kids themed movie in your mind.  The image I used for this project is the Phindy's Place image, Bubble Gum.

I'm sure you have heard me say over and over and over again that I find male cards so difficult to make.  So I decided to be a little creative this time and make the card shape a baseball jersey and then added my little guy to the front.  It's still CAS  but uniquely shaped, which I like.

Materials I Used for My Project:
Copic Markers - Y15, Y13, Y11, Y000, E37, E35, E34, E31, E53, E51, E50
Black Cat Cougar Cutter
Spellbinder's Nestabilities Oval dies
Glossy Accents

Here's a close up of my bad news player.

So, now it's your turn, pick your favorite song or movie and then create a project using that theme.  If you need a little extra inspiration you know you can always find it with the ladies from our DT, they always make such awesome projects!
