Phindy’s Place Challenge ~ Girlie!


It’s Friday!!   Yay.    Time for a new challenge at Phindy’s Place.   This week’s challenge is one that I think everyone who makes cards loves ~ Girlie; which of course means ribbons, bows, flowers, sparkle, frills, etc., so many possibilities.   This adorable little girl image is called Stepping Out Katie.    I just love her cute little pigtails and that adorable look on her face!   Katie has been illustrated by Phindy and is available as a digi image at Phindy’s store.



This fun DP is from the October Afternoon Fly a Kite 8×8 paper pad.  I’ve used Spellbinders Nestabilites Blossom and Ribbon Tag Trio 2 dies for this card, some teal tulle, rhinestone flower stickers and a small yellow prima, all from my stash.

I hope you will join us for this Girlie challenge.   We are making a few changes on how the winners will be chosen for our weekly challenges ~  All the details and some totally adorable DT projects for this challenge can be found at the Phindy’s Place Challenge blog.

Thanks for dropping by today!   Happy weekend everyone.

  4. My “creative” comment-WOW! I’d love to take classes with you-your coloring just knocks me out! I didn’t think I “needed” this image—until now! I know I won’t be able to make it shine the way you do but, my goodness, she is so cute!

  5. Mary, you have made that little girl so cute I want to squeeze her! Fabulous coloring on this image and I love the papers you used, your just-right ribbon and that perfect sentiment. Beautiful card!

    Wishing you a great weekend!

  7. aww.. this is fabulous!!! I don’t know where to start… is it the outstanding coloring or the wonderful choice of papers (LOVE this), the colors, the embellishments, the layout… or ‘just’ the whole card as is? it doesn’t matter.. it’s just another little masterpiece you created!!! *wow*
    wishing you a wonderful and stressless weekend, Mary!!!

  10. Adorable Mary!! Love the blue and yellow. The sentiment is cool–love the way you added it with tulle 🙂

  11. This is such a darling image…and a sweet card! Hope you are surviving all the chaos!

  12. Awww another beautiful work of art Mary!!!
    I keep meaning to ask you what kind of paper you use? The way you do your awesome backgrounds make it look a bit ‘bumpy’ for lack of a better term. I love the way they look.
    Hugs, Candy

  13. Mary this is so gorgeous! I absolutely LOVE your beautiful creations!!! Hope you have great luck with selling and finding a new house! 🙂 I’m wondering if you are going to be at CHA this summer seeing how it’s back in Chicago? If so I’d love to meet up with you…my Mom and I will be there!!! 🙂
    Hugs~ Kim
