Phindy's 100th Challenge & Blog Hop

Today is such a special day at Phindy's Place. We are having our 100th Challenge and are going to celebrate with a little blog hop. The challenge this week is ANYTHING GOES WITH A PHINDY'S IMAGE. You can create any kind of card or other paper-crafted project as long as you use a Phindy image.

If you don't have a Phindy image there are lots of fabulous images in her store, including some sweet new spring and Easter images so pop over and pick up a few so you can enter.

We are also having a little blog hop this week and you will want to take a look around because there might be some candy offered along the way. I do know that there is candy up for grabs at Phindy's Place and all you need to do win that is to enter the challenge following the challenge theme and leave a comment at the challenge blog and every step along the way. One random winner chosen from the entries will receive the candy. The candy winner will be posted on Friday, April 13th. We will also choose our weekly random winner and our Card of the Week winner from the entries.

I am offering a little candy for one commenter on my card for the 100th challenge. You can comment up to Friday, April 13th at 9:30 am GMT after which time one random winner will be selected and the winner posted.

To leave a little love for the other designers the order of the hop is:

Anne Ray (DT Leader)
Cec Wintonyk (DT Coordinator) (You Are Here)
Ann English
Catherine Ward
Kathy Curry
Linda Payne
Marlena Peduzzi

The daffodils are starting to bloom here despite the whacky weather we have been experiencing. Since it is supposed to be spring, I thought I would use this adorable fairy image on my card and to emphasize the daffodil, I popped it up with a dimensional. Her wings have a little sparkle on them but the photo isn't doing it justice.
