women of life...take 4

It is Wednesday! The half way point!!!! The weekend is right around the corner.

So as you can see I am really getting a lot of use out of my Women of Life stamp set by Papertrey
It is the perfect set for making cards for women. I used the color combo of soft sky and real red, which I think looks really nice together. It is hard to see from the picture, but I added stardust stickles the center of each flower to give it some "bling."

I don't know about you, but I am always looking for fast, easy and yummy recipes. That is why one of my favorite shows on the food network is Robin Miller last night I made this I had some leftover grilled chicken from our fajitas, so it worked out perfectly. I did substitute a chopped red pepper for the apple (that just sounded weird to me). I served it with some homemade tortilla chips (cut tortilla into wedges, spray with cooking spray, salt, pepper, bake until golden), sour cream, some extra cheese for the top and salsa. It was yummy and perfect for a summer night meal.

I also started to watch the video I bought on how to work my new camera, I think I may have to watch it a few times, but it is very helpful since I am a visual learner. I am excited to take it off auto mode and use some of the more creative settings.

Thanks for visiting! Enjoy your day!!
