Phindy's Place Friday - What's Cooking

Good morning, Welcome to my blog on this Fabulous Friday!  We are finally looking forward to the return of some warm weather around here. My vacation has been productive, but fairly relaxing, and the only down side is that I am returning to work on Monday, which means back to the craziness.  I am grateful to have had a nice low key vacation at home with the kids.

Before we go any further I want to let you know that I am currently running a blog candy contest.  Just click HERE to get to the original post about the contest and then leave a reply to be eligible for the prize.  I will be giving a gift certificate away to one random winner.  You can find more details on the original post.

Today at Phindy's Place our challenge is What's Cooking.  This is challenge #101.  Thank you to all of you who participated in our 100th challenge or left comments on our blog hop!  I'm glad to have been part of such a milestone for the Phindy's Place challenge blog.  For today's 101st challenge I used the Phindy's Place image, Chocomonster.

Materials Used for this Project:
Copic Markers - R85, R83, R81, CB, RV02, RV00, RV000, Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11
Spellbinder's dies
Big Shot
MS Border Punch
Glossy Accents

I used my new Black Cat cutter to cut the flourishes on each side.  This is a big feat for me since just the day before I couldn't even load the may properly.  I LOVE this cutter, it is way cool, but I have a lot to learn about everything it can do!

Here's a close up of my colored image.

Isn't she just a cutie.  What a yummy box of chocolate!

Now it's your turn, stop by and enter your project with any type of food in it.  You don't have to use a Phindy's Place image to enter our challenge but we really LOVE when you do!  Besides, Phindy's images are just the cutest, don't you think!  You also get to add your project a second time for the random prize if you do use one of Phindy's amazing images.  I hope you can find some inspiration from the fabulous projects the other DT members have made!
So glad you stopped by today,


  1. Your coloring knocks my socks off-just love your work-always!

  2. Gorgeous card with fab shading as always......

  3. Your coloring of this image blows me away! It is out of this world & I hope I can learn from you.

  4. Another adorable card Marlena! I hope you enjoy every last minute of your vacation. You deserve a chance to relax.

  5. First off I adore all this pink, because it screams girl to me, and this image is certainly like most girls, we love our chocolate. Your coloring makes her dress look like velvet.

  6. I adore this image Marlena (she looks like my little one). Your coloring is just divine, love the pink color scheme and flowers, too. Have fun with your new cutter!
