Phindy's Friday Challenge

It's Friday so that means it's time for another challenge on the Phindy's Friday Challenge blog. This week the challenge is Easter or Spring. Check out all the dt samples, they are wonderful!

I used this adorable little Spring Bouquet image from Phindy's Place store. I think she is so cute, probably because she looks like Lilah.  It's so funny, because both Cal and Liam thought this was Lilah. Cal asked, "how did you get a stamp of her?", too funny. I think this one has to go to my Nana for Easter.

Hope you will join us at Phindy's for this challenge. You don't need to use a Phindy image, but if you do you get entered twice, so that is a pretty good incentive.

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

Hi Kathy,
I'm lovin those Phindy kiddie images, so cute. Love that it looks like your daughter!! I love the dp's, and flowers. The yellow frame around the image, is it a die cut, or did you make it yourself? Would love to know.
Have a great week-end.
hugs Marilyn
