Phindy’s Place Challenge ~ Happy Birthday!


TGIF!   And that means a new challenge at Phindy’s Place.   This week, we’re featuring another super easy challenge ~ Happy Birthday.     I’ve used this VERY yummy looking strawberry shortcake with a little visitor enjoying the sweet cream.   (I admit it, there’s just something about mice that I am always drawn to them ~ of course only the illustrated ones!)    This adorable Phindy image is called Sooo Good.



The image was colored with Copics, of course; cut out and attached with dimensionals.   The DP is from October Afternoon ~ Fly a Kite 8×8 paper pad.   I was excited to find that it matched both the strawberries and the little flowers on the cake!   Yes, it’s the little things that make life worthwhile!    🙂

The sentiment is from the Skipping Stones Birthday Donuts stamp set.



So, since this is a pretty easy challenge, I hope you will join us!    All the details, along with the awesome Design Team cards, can be found at the Phindy’s Place Challenge blog.

Thanks for stopping by today!    Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    I would love to have some strawberry shortcake. YUM, YUM! This little visitor is just to mischievous looking and he’s so enjoying his treat! How you make your colors work is just inspiring. I guess I must invest in more little books of coordinated pages! Looks yummy Mary!
