Phindy's Friday Challenge

TGIF!  Welcome to another Phindy's Friday challenge. We are doing things a bit differently the first week of each month. Our challenge is anything goes, makes it super simple to play along. BUT, you must use a Phindy's Place image this week. Not hard to do, when there is a huge selection of images in the store to suit every taste!

I've used an image called Christmas Colt. I bought it last year to make a holiday card for my brother and his wife, and this is that card (I had good intentions, but just didn't get to it last year). Happily, I have it ready to go early this year. They are big horse lovers, they relocated to KY to work for a Thoroughbred newspaper, so I think this will be a perfect card for them.

Stop on over to the challenge blog and check out the DT cards. Hope you will play along with us this week!
