I was up to my ears in green beans and peas from my husbands garden this weekend. I thought I would dedicate the occasion with Sweet Pea Tilda for my DT card at 7 Kids College Fund.
This weeks challenge at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog Anything goes with a twist of markers. You can use any alcohol marker on your image and it should be one that is available at 7 Kids College Fund Store to be eligible for the prize.
Here is my card
I know I am nutty over the Graphic 45 papers lately, but they go so well and they are lovely. I used Tiny text to put Sugar Pea on as my friend Sandy calls everyone sugar so I instantly thought of it.
I used the Magnolia Butterfly set and punched some others to distress with Coredinations card stock. I used the Coredinations on the Magnolia Doohickey fence as well.
Tilda is colored with Copics and I used the Magnolia flower corner around her also. You can see a bit of the Magnolia butterfly in this photo too.
The inside of the card are Marianne dies with the Graphic 45 paper and Coredinations paper.
So here is a big pot of soup I am making on the left, and also freezing beans at the same time. Hours of cutting, washing, blanching, packaging, and freezing! Only 2 boys left in the house to help us this summer. I bet the other kids are laughing as they do not have to do this anymore! lol Family fun.
I made this awesome soup with everything from our garden, too bad we do not have our own cow for the cream! lol It was so flavorful from the herbs I used right from the garden, best pot yet. This is all that was left.
Creamy Bean and Potato Soup
Boil small chunks of potato's and cut green bean until tender, drain remaining water.
Add milk and cream about 4 Cups, Fresh herbs, Basil, Chives, Parsley. Salt and Pepper. Fry bacon and onion together and then cut into bitty pieces and put into soup. Thicken with flour and cook on a low heat until hot, cover, turn off heat and let it sit for 2 hours as the flavors come together.
That is it! mmmmm Enjoy!
