Phindys 100th Challenge!!!!

Hi everyone, it's Friday again and time for another challenge over at Phindys Place.
This one is a really fun one as its the 100th challenge so time to party!!!
We are doing a blog hop and if you have landed here in the order from the challenge blog then you would have come from the fab Ann's blog......

For my card I have used one of my favourite (I do have quite a few favourites....) images, Sudsy Suzy and coloured her with copics.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the butterflies are a Cheery Lynn die.
The flourish is a Cheery Lynn fanciful Flourish die which I cut into bits.





The rules for the blog are as follows:
- You must use a Phindy Image to enter the challenge
- There is some blog candy on the main challenge blog - to be in with a chance of winning this you must enter the challenge, comment on the challenge blog and also each of the team mates blogs.

There may be additional candys on each DT blog and you need to comment on their blogs to be in with a chance of winning this.....
This is my blog candy that I am offering, so just leave me a comment and I will announce a lucky winner next Friday!!!


OK, so from here you need to jump to the lovely Kathy's blog....
Good luck everyone!!!!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Use your favourite tool (has to be my sewing machine)
Crafters Companion - Four legged friends
Just keep on Creating - Anything Goes

Great card Catherine I love green so it's right up my street and you embellies are fab!
Sorry I've been such a rubbish follower lately, I can't cope with going back to work after several months off! Things should settle down soon.
Just had a quick look at what ive been missing and your Teddy Bo knitting is one of my favourite cards ever!
