"Phri-days are Phindys" is now ONE YEAR OLD!

Welcome to the Phindy's Place Challenge Birthday Bloghop! It is one whole year
since we began posting challenges on the blog, we can't believe a year has gone by
so fast!
Our challenge this week is paper piecing and the usual prizes are up for grabs,
however we aren't posting the DT's cards on the blog this week, we would love you to play
along for a blog hop and collect a word from each posting. When you've got the
full sentence, please post it in the comments on the blog (which will be hidden
until the hop is over!) and you could win a $10 Gift Certificate to use at Phindy's Place.

You aren't required to leave comments at each blog, but we'd love it if you do
leave some love for the DT! Blog Hop is open until midnight (GMT) 28 April.
So this week, you have THREE chances to win: the blog hop, the random winner of
the challenge and the pick of the week. So what are you waiting for?

Here is the order for the Blog Hop, in case you get lost, you start and finish at the Challenge Blog:

cardstock is GKD's Chocolate and Sand - Designer Paper is from the Paper Studio, retired SU ribbon, twine from GKD, buckle from SU's Hodgepodge Hardware and ticket from Whimsy Stamps
Copics used: C2...E00,02,04,13,17,47...B32,97

Animals In the Field
Christmas Winter Walk
Christmas/Winter Cuties Smooch
