Orange - did you know it was the new Christmas color - I never really thought too much about the color orange or used it too much in my cards (except for Halloween) until I got a student worker whose favorite color is orange - so I have been designing cards with orange quite abit lately.
Unfortunately - the long week end is coming to a close and I think I have to work five days this week - oh my - I haven't done that for quite awhile. I hope I can - I hope I can - I hope I can. I did get the broth made for Christmas dinner - my Mom makes noodles from scratch - so you need homemade broth to cook them in. I now have chicken also but I have several potlucks coming up and will use the chicken for hot chicken sandwiches.
Here is my recipe for chicken sandwiches.
Slow Cooked Chicken Sandwiches

6 c. cubed cooked chicken or turkey
2 cups cubed process cheese (Velveeta)
1 can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
½ c finely chopped onion
½ c chopped celery

In a 3 qt slow cooker, combine the first six
ingredients. Cover and cook on low for
3-4 hours or until onions and celery are
tender and cheese is melted.

Yield: 22 servings
This card is based on the sketch at The Sweet Stop (a new sketch every Saturday). The Stampendous Blog is also having a challenge for you to use the Changito monkey. I have been seeing some other winter Changito monkeys that I have never seen and I think I might need them - I love the ice skater. Very cute.
Everyone enjoy the remainder of the day and have a good week. Come back on Wednesday - I have some fun news to share.
