Get Moving

This is the first Friday of the month so that means another ANYTHING GOES WITH A PHINDY IMAGE challenge at Phindy's Place. You can make any kind of card or other paper-crafted project you like as long as you feature one of Phindy's wonderful images. There are lots in the store, so if you don't have one go on over and pick one (or more) up.

Since you must use a Phindy image, you only need to link your project once this week but you have a couple of chances to win. We will choose a random winner and the Design Team will select a Card of the Week. Both winners will receive a $5 gift certificate to Phindy's store and the DT pick will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

Unlike my husband and daughter, I am not a fan of exercise but I do walk every day so when I saw this image, I knew I had to make my card with it this week. This doesn't really look like me and I am always forgetting to take my music with me but I do use the time to make mental card designs.  There aren't too many people walking past where I walk, which is a good thing because I often talk to myself, especially when I get what I think will be a great idea.  I am sure if anyone heard me saying "Maybe ribbon would look good there" or "I know, I should use pink pearls on that card", they would think I was bonkers :)
