Chili and a card!

I have to tell you I love having Mondays off!  I actually accomplished a lot today. First, since we got blasted with a winter storm late yesterday and through the night, we spent 1.5 hrs shovelling us out.  Drifts up to my knees, way too much snow.  Then came in a made this delicious White Bean Chili - OMG it is sooooo good. 

 Doesn't that look delicious! Here is the recipe:

1 lb ground chicken
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
3 cups chopped celery
3 cloves garlic - minced
4 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp pepper
1 can diced tomatoes - undrained
1 can navy beans - rinsed and drained
2 cups chicken broth

For us WW gals it's a 6 pt meal!

Then I finally got around to making a couple of cards.  Today's card, I'm using an image I have had stamped out for quite a while but never coloured her up.
Here is Kenya Ketto.

Since she was already stamped out, next I needed to decide what colours I was going to use. So pulled out my scrap bucket, and came across some DP from Basic Grey - Blush collection.  Perfect! Pulled out my prismacolor pencils and went to town.  I had her coloured up in no time.  I sponged some wheat versamagic ink around Kenya leaving the die in place.  Doesn't look like it showed up very well in the picture but it is there.  Used my beaded oval for the read layer underneath the image.
Finished her off with some ribbon, and glitter.

I'll be back on Wednesday to show you my other card I did today.  It is so pretty, your going to love it!  See you then,

Oh and don't forget about our challenge this friday.  It's  Use a stamp that has never seen ink! Come on, I know you have plenty of those, so shouldn't be too hard to play along.  Email Emily your card by thursday night.  Who knows, you could be a lucky winner of some bella bucks!
