I want everyone who pulls this freebie to take it, type in their favorite soup recipe and then post it back to our discussion! I recommend you do not color the border in at this time, and make sure your posting is of a high resolution - because we are going to print these pages out and compile them into a Phindy's Place Soup Cookbook! (if all the images are b&w for printing - we will save on colored ink).
ALSO - my next Freebie, when we reach 600 - will be an image for the cover of this cookbook!

You'll just have to wait and see!

THAT'S IT LADIES! I really hope you will ALL join in and help with the fun this week. I think we have some great activities and some great prizes and I would really love your participation in the Phindy 500 Party!

Card by Cindy

I just love this card Cindy created using the image "Romantic Moment". The coloring is so understated it creates an "airy" feeling just right for this image - and just look at that little airplane embellie with the ribbon tail smoke and dangling hearts! Really lovely work. You can see more of Cindy's work on her blog.
