Phridays are Phindy's!!! this week - Winter Cutie Blog Hop + Challenge

HAPPY Phri-day!
We have two things going on for you - First, a Hop (visit each DT member's blog + Challenge Blog and collect the nine words for a sentence and then in the comment section of the Challenge Blog enter what you think is the sentence) and Second, our weekly challenge!

  PHINDY'S PHABULOUS CHRISTMAS CUTIES BLOG HOP!

These oh-so-cute images you have been waiting for go on sale in Phindy's Shop today[link] and we're celebrating their launch with an  amazing blog hop around the DT, where you will see two Cuties used on each blog.
One random winner of the blog hop will receive TWO Christmas Cutie images of their choice! What do you have to do to win? Visit the DT's blogs and leave a comment at each one. Each blog will have a word that you need to collect as you hop along. Put the words together to make a sentence and leave your sentence in the comment section of the Challenge Blog!
Phindy is also giving an image to a random commenter on one of the DT blogs!?
Here is a full list of the participating blogs in the correct order, grab their "words" to make your sentence:

Tammy Maynard
Ann English
Annika Ryan
Linda Payne  YOU ARE HERE AND THE WORD FOR MY BLOG IS   "ARE"
Anne-Marije Poppen
Lynda Nielsen
Mary B. Giemza
Sylvia Blum
Phindys Place Challenge Blog

    our weekly challenge - this week its to support  OWH!

Now as well as the Blog Hop, we do still have our regular challenge running this week - but with a twist! Our Challenge is to support Operation Write Home by making a card - or even better several cards - and sending them to support the armed forces overseas. This week, for one week only, we have an Open Challenge where you DO NOT have to  use a Phindy's Place image, though we'd love it if you did!

 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!

Have fun on the Blog Hop, don't forget to leave a comment here and when you're done - leave your complete nine word sentence over on the Challenge Blog.

ok, now my cards - the first one is Phindy's image "Smooch" (sentiment is old PSX stamp) I was all smiles - these are my two youngest grankids! and fits their personalities perfectly!! My Lily who is 3 and loves being the princess and my Logan, loves his big sister but is always the "pawn" in her imaginary games - he doesnt know what to expect LOL
did the close up so you could see the coloring better but I really wanted you to see her red sparkly shoes!! My grandaughter loves her "Dorothy" shoes (-:
this one is Phindy's image "Peppermint Perfection" (sentiment is random wood stamp - may be Hero Arts)
isnt he precious!!!!

long post! so didnt give card details - besides I used every red Copic I have...so just use all of yours!!

Leaving today to go spend a week with the older grankids while their parents are on a missions trip to Belize with their church...please pray for the team's safety and that hearts are open to receive Jesus as their Saviour!

hugs (and to Olga and Bill - praying he comes home today and that the road to recovery is a swift one!)
