In Hot Water!


It's that time of the year when chicken soup just sounds perfect. You can have it for lunch, dinner, or just a snack. With all the colds, flus and viruses going around, it's the perfec remedy. Plus it's one of the things that I can make!

In Hot Water is from the Lockhart Stamp Company and you can pick this poor thing up from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. She's got a great promotion going on right now that for every 4 regular Lockhart stamps you purchase, you get a free Itty Bitty Stamp. Can't beat a free stamp! Plus there's a huge promotion going on over at PCP at the Fans of Karen Lockhart group. Stop by and see!

I love that you can see the vegetables and broth floating around this poor thing. I stamped him on a tan card stock and colored him with copics and Prisma colored pencils and OMS. Then I masked him and stamped my old SU Recipe Card Set and layered the card onto red card stock. I used a tab punch I picked up at Big Lots for the top and punched it out of the great plaid that comes in the DCWV new "Animal Crackers" stack. Pretty quick and easy but so cute! I love how it came out!

This year I plan on making recipe boxes with my favorite recipes for my girls for Christmas next year. If you've been to my house for dinner, you'll know that it will take me that long to come up with my favorite recipes that I make! A cook, I'm not, but I sure can whip up some recipe cards! Hope everyone stays safe and only needs chicken soup because you love it!

That is a great idea. What a nice gift that will be to have a collection of your recipes. And speaking of chicken soup, we are having it tonight and I need to go roast off the chicken. Have a great day. -Molly B

Fabulous recipe card. I love the image. I too have been toying with the idea of scrapping a family cookbook this year for Christmas so this would be a fantastic image.
