Valentine Card & Taco Soup

I was able to combine 2 challenges with this card. First, 2Sketches4U as the layout and then sewing on my card for JUGS.

I also used glitter for the first time. I had been avoiding it but I decided to use 1/4 scor tape and Martha Stewart glitter. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was! I also used 2 way glue around the frame.

One of the fun dates of January is that this month is National Hot Soup Month. So I'm sharing my Taco Soup recipe. This couldn't be any simpler. Perfect way to make sure your family has dinner and you have time to craft.

For my Project Life photo of the day, I decided to take a pix of the ingredients in the crock pot. Color inspiration--I don't think so!

Taco Soup for the Crock Pot

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
2 cans Ranch style pinto beans
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 large can hominy
1 can diced rotel tomatoes
1 med. onion
1 pkg. mild taco seasoning
1 pkg. ranch style salad dressing mix

Brown beef and onion. Add to crock pot. Stir in all other ingredients and cook on low for several hours.Great served with tortilla chips and cheese. Servings – 6

  4. What a cute card Rhonda! Your zig zag stitching looks perfect! You did an awesome job coloring that cute frog image & adventuring with the use of glitter. I like your train of thought - cooking a big pot of something so you have more time to craft :) Thank you for playing along with Just Us Girls stitching challenge - hope you make another big pot of something so you can join along with an all new color challenge on Saturday!
