Challenge Title: Chicken S-O-U-P
Hostess: Cook22 aka Sabrina
Date: Tuesday, October 23rd 2012
To this day I can't make cream of chicken soup without being reminded of a dear friend who stayed with us over twenty years ago when she was first diagnosed with, and being treated for, breast cancer. She had a terrible time with her chemo and couldn't really eat for a couple of days afterwards, so the day she went in for her treatment I'd cook up a big pot of cream of chicken soup, and it would be ready waiting when I picked her up from hospital the next day.
So my challenge to you is to use a chicken (hens and roosters are acceptable too
) on your card, and elements that spell the word S-O-U-P.
No chicken stamps? There are plenty of possibilities with punch art and even with finger painting.
S - Spellbinders, stripes, silver, scallops, shoes...
O - ovals, orange, orchids, office supplies...
U - umbrellas, UTEE, underwear, ultramarine blue. As far as I'm concerned parsley and carrots (and Queen Anne's Lace) are all part of the Umbelliferae family so if you want to go all out with the soup theme, be my guest
P - PINK
, pearls, peacocks, poppies, patina...
Be as imaginative as you wish, but please do share your "spelling" in your write-up so we can all enjoy your super-creativity.
And please pay attention to all the uploading instructions, including the first one if you want to be eligible for prizes.
