Phindy's Friday Challenge

TGIF! Time for another Phindy's Friday Challenge! The challenge this week at Phindy's Place is gingham and or plaid. Pretty easy and versatile challenge, hope you will join us.

I went with Bathing Beauty for my image this week. This is such a fun retro kind of image, makes me smile. Love the sun hat and dotted bikini.  Phindy has lots of great images in the shop that would work out perfectly with this challenge.

Hope you will pop on over to the challenge blog and see what the DT has created this week. Play along with the challenge to win some prizes. It's not necessary to use a Phindy image, but if you do you get entered twice, so that is some pretty good incentive! 

I've used the wonderful sketch from Sketch N Stash #11. They have an open challenge this week, challenge #90, where you can select any on of their past sketches and play along. Fun to look at all of the past sketches, I wanted to pick one I had not done before, so I went with this one. My stash is the October Afternoon prints and prima flowers, while my new item is the image.

Charisma Cardz - 3E, C10 - Summer
Cute Card Thursday - C5 - Here comes summer
House That Stamps Built - SIO -Beach

Those colours seem to remind me of something, I think it was called...Summer?
