Wow, 2015 was quite the year.  Here's to 2016!  Time for me to dust off this blog (truthfully, I spent 20 minutes just trying to get back into the administration page).  Sheesh!

The Dueling Darlings on Splitcoast have started back up the monthly duels.  Tracie sent us Dazzlers the cute image: "Chick N Soup" by CC Designs and a sentiment from Crackerbox Palace.  Very fun!

Isn't this a sorry looking little guy?

He's cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 22.  (Dont look too closely at the blue edging, it's freehand and not perfect.)
The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers.

Tracie included the cute DPs from Bo Bunny Juliet.  The mustard CS and beige card stock is from my stash.

We were also given the cute pompom ribbon in the kit, so cute!

Here's the inside of my card.  The sentiment was on white CS, so I colored it up with markers, die cut it with "Classic Tags" dies from A Muse Studios and tied on some twine.

Tracie, I really have to thank you for putting together just the right image and papers to get me back in the card making mode.  

Favorite soup recipe???  It's tough to choose, being a soup gal.  Right now I think Pasta E Fagioli is what I'll talk about.  There are loads of variations, but this one here is close to the one I make.  It was such a favorite of my daughter's that I made her batches as Christmas presents the past few years.  She loved this soup!

Here's my daughter, Amanda on a camping & fishing trip in 2014.  And that's her dog, Suki, who now lives with me.  
Love your family & friends and tell them often. 
Life is uncertain. You'll be glad that you did.
