Dueling Darlings

It is time again for another Dueling Darlings challenge. We are a group of blogging friends from Splitcoaststampers.  This month was a challenge by Tracie and Barb-they sent us card kits, and we create with a theme in mind. Our theme for this month is Get well and warm soup : )

I am in the Dazzler group and Tracie sent us this fun image from C.C. Designs called Chick-N-Soup.  Isn't he adorable.  She also sent a few embellishments for our cards.  Be sure and visit the Dazzler and Diva Blogs listed to the right, below on my sidebar. 

An added challenge was to add our favorite soup recipe or link to the soup.  
My absolutely favorite soup is Chicken Tortilla Soup, and the recipe is by Suzanna Dean. She shared this recipe on her Blog a while back.  
Suz's Chicken Tortilla Soup
I make a few adjustments for spicy-ness and no cheese for me - Yummie!!!

Challenges:
Sketch- Your Next Stamp aka YNS
Moving Along with the Times- Spots and Dots
Outlawz Color challenge- Rhinestones, DP, Dry Embossing

Thanks for stopping by!

I totally know how that poor chicken feels! I have been battling some kind of stomach bug for about 3 weeks now - off and on again. Maybe I need me some chicken tortilla soup... recipe looks delish! Thanks for sharing!

How cute is this?! I really like the layout, and that you cut apart the sentiment, very clever! Those sequins look like more bubble from the pot coming up, very fun. Nice job!
