Phri-days are Phindys - Challenge #22 Going Green

Phri-day Happy Dance!
and that means a new Phindy Challenge.

This week - it's Going Green ! challenge is to use the color green and/or recycle something in your project. So I used all different shades of green and my flower is recycled paper! Found this paper at Big Lots a loooong time ago...

The scene is called Birds Go By with Cat and is colored with various green and blue-green Copics as well as E31,35, 49 and 53, used Smooch illuminator on the water and white gel pen for accent. Cardstock is from GKD's All Spruced Up and retired SU dp, gingham ribbon, recyled gold/green paper, used Nestie and SU's Top Note die and MS branch punch.

The winner of the Challenge will be chosen by Random.org and will receive an $8 Gift Certificate to the Phindy's Place store. The Pick of the Week wins a 20% off voucher for the Phindy's Place store. Don't forget that once a month we will choose an overall winner from the weekly winners and they will be offered a Guest position on the DT - and of course a free image from Phindy's Place to use for that week's challenge! Hope you get a chance to pop over to the Challenge Blog and check out the DT's cards.

Philippians 2:14 "do ALL things without murmuring and disputing"...I think this is one of the toughest verses to conquer - seems like I complain way tooooo much over the dumbest things and I really realize this even more when I see friends with real problems who never complain and keep looking to the Lord.
