  1. Potato soup...sounds wonderful right now. Thanks for the chance to win!

  2. I love Halloween! Your card is toooo cute! One of my favorite soups is chicken tortilla, but I don't have a specific recipe for it. I just throw things together like chicken broth, nacho cheese, chicken of course...maybe some black beans and corn...depending on what I have on hand.I just season it up to my likings and then throw a few corn chips on top. The spice in it definitely makes it great for warming up on a cool day! :)

  3. We love split pea soup. No specific recipe. Soak peas. Saute onions and garlic, drain, rinse and add peas and fresh water, salt and pepper. Simmer till all is cooked. You can thin it for the consistency you want. I add sausage or ham to it while it is simmering. (ham is my favorite)
    If you have chicken broth you can use that instead of water.

  4. I do love making soup in the winter, but usually "wing it" - beef with a tomato base and veggies, chicken tortilla, ham and bean - yum!

  5. My hubby makes wonderful French Onion Soup. I'll have to ck to see if he has a recipe. He mostly just grabs things from the cupboard & so I'm figuring there's no recipe. Like the shape of the sentiment tag.
    "Sunshine HoneyBee"

  6. I love your card the papers are great. I don't do soup much we usually go with chili in the crockpot. YUM

  7. I have a really good recipe for potato soup. It originally was a Weight Watchers recipe but I add butter and cream to fatten it up. Lol! It is so good.

  8. I have a dream and that is I want to use Scrapbooking my all books. Promotional Pens You've found the best promotional pens made in the USA.

  9. Your card is spooktacular! Love the papers! That Snow Folks cart is so adorable!My two favorite homemade soups are beef vegetable and chicken tortilla. I don't have recipes for either. I just put ground beef, frozen veggies, and tomato sauce, tomatoes, and chicken stock in the pot, and simmer for a long time. Sometimes I add other flavorings. For the chicken tortilla soup, I use chicken stock, chicken, Rotel tomatoes, regular canned tomatoes, frozen corn, sometimes white rice, cilantro, and top with tortilla chips and avocado slices.

  10. Being from the cold Midwest, soups are a mainstay during the fall and winter. We love Split Pea (just buy the package and use the recipe there), potato soup and the best is Turkey Noodle made with Thanksgiving leftovers. Yummm!

  11. I love to make Potato Soup loaded with lots of butter, cream, onions and garlic. Yummy!!

  12. My husband is the cook in this family but one of the things he does to make chicken soup super easy is he uses a rotisserie chicken from the deli. They usually sell for $5-6 and they're freshly made (and costs less than a whole uncooked chicken in the fresh meat dept.). The chicken has a great spice to it and he just adds chicken stock, carrots, celery and onions until the vegetables are soft, and then adds noodles. So delicious. Delicious homemade soup in an hour. It's not really cold here yet in Missouri, but I don't care, it sounds delicious.

  13. Loving Fall/Halloween theme (my fav). Love my Artiste Cart, haven't been able to use it much, my gypsy seems to not be taking the snyc well. But I will figure it out when I have time, I haven't been able to lately out of the loop - but love the ideas, keep sharing and thank you.

  14. Love the Trick of Treat card. Your cards are the best. Quick and easy warm you up soup is to simply put a boullion cube, low salt if you preferr, in a cup of hot water. Nice change from a cup of tea. rosebud114

  15. There are lots of soups to make, but a favorite here in Central PA is a Dutch soup called Chicken Corn Soup. It is a good hardy soup and one that I make over and over again because it happens to be a favorite soup of my daughter-in-laws. It is also a very easy soup to make. I also love Cream of Crab soup, Potato soup, beef vegetable, Cream of Broccoli soup, Slipper Pie Pie isn't a soup but not far from it. Just good old comfort foods!

  16. It's getting cold here, time to make some soup. My husbands fav is split pea. I like Senate Bean and also a Mexican chicken soup which everyone likes.

  17. No good soup recipes...but I really love your card. The layout is great and most of all the papers are fantastic!!

  18. Your Halloween card it great and I really want the cartridge and papers. I am a seat of the pants soup maker; no recipes. Love to make beef vegetable soup with so many vegetables it is almost a stoup. (stew + soup) My husband makes a great bean or pea soup. It is definitely the weather now for soup. Thank you for the chance to win a cartridge.

  19. I don't really make soup. And I don't really make many cards. I should really start doing both!

  20. Always have a great day after watching your vids. Love the card!

  21. Cute card, I always enjoy your videos. I would love to have this cartridge, it's so cute.
    I love soup. I make it year round. It usually depends on the contents of the fridge and leftovers.

  22. Luv all the ideas for my cricut carts that I've bought from CTMH! Always inspirational! Thanks!

  23. The favorite soup around here is potato soup with lots of cheddar cheese, butter, onions, garlic, celery and cream. Yummy! My 12 year old grandson even asks for it everytime he comes to visit. Cute card. Have a fun day!

  24. favorite is Turkey Taco soup. Love it and so good in the cool Fall and winter weather.
    Can use chicken instead of turkey. Great! love the card and the colors. Never heard of
    spellbound papers.

  25. Love the card, simple but sweet. Would be great to win.
    Hugs, CyndiU

    Servings: 6 • Size: 1 Cup Soup + Crouton • Calories: 225.2 • Fat: 6.1 g • Carb: 15.9 g • Fiber: 2.5 g •Protein: 20.7 g • Sugar: 6 g • Sodium: 494.3 mg
    4 Medium Yellow Onions, Sliced Thinly
    5 Garlic Cloves, Chopped
    3 Tbsp. Light Butter
    1/4 C. Red Wine Vinegar
    6 C. Reduced Sodium Beef Broth
    1 (11.2 Oz.) Guinness Draught Beer
    1 Bay Leaf
    1 Tbsp. Dried Rosemary
    Salt & Pepper To Taste
    6 Slices French Bread (2" x 2-1/2" x 1-3/4")
    6 Oz. Irish Cheddar, Sliced (I used Kerrygold, Aged)
    Place onions, garlic, and butter into your slow cooker. Cover and cook on high heat setting for 45 minutes to an hour or until onions begin to soften. Yes, your slow cooker will be pretty full of onions. Don't let it scare you! They cook down to almost nothing.
    Stir red wine vinegar, broth, beer, bay leaf, rosemary, salt and pepper into onions. Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 9 hours (or high heat setting 3 to 4 hours) or until onions are very tender.
    Once the soup is finished, remove the bay leaf. Right before serving, preheat oven broiler and set out individual slices of french bread onto a baking sheet. Top bread slices with 1 oz. of the cheddar cheese each and broil until the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned. Ladle soup into bowls and top with toasted 'croutons'. Serve piping hot.

  37. Awesome card!! Haven't made soup in long time but when I did I made a homemade vegetable soup. Don't have a recipe just did my own thing

  41. I have a couple that I like to make when it's cold. One is a chicken tortilla soup where I just throw in chicken, pintos, corn, peppers & onion along with a can of rotel tomatoes, green chilies, a can of green enchilada sauce and some tomatilla salsa. I then add water to my desired thickness and cook long enough to let the flavors meld. I then add in corn tortilla strips and dish up.

    My other one is a sauerkraut and sausage soup which you can find here:

  53. Love the Halloween card! I always like split pea soup in the fall, and I just follow the recipe on the package of split peas. It's super easy!

  54. My favorite is Asopao, it's a puertorrican chicken and rice dish that is fabulous in the winter. That said, I LOVE snowmen. Probably because I lived in PR where a snowman whose nose, eyes and hat would be floating in a puddle. LOL
