Taco Soup - with Pictures

Hi Everyone! Wanted to share my Taco Soup recipe again since I made it a week or so ago when we had some colder days again. It's same recipe as before just wanted to add pics this time

1 pound meat, your choice. we use rotisserie chicken 
1 can Corn drained 
1 can Pinto Beans drained & rinsed
1 can Rotel
1 can Diced Tomatoes
1 pack Taco Seasoning
1 pack Ranch Dressing seasoning
I use about 4.5 Rotel cans filled with water to cover ingredients. You can use more or less, we like ours not a runny soup.

Toppings: Fritos, Sour Cream, Cheese or other topping you may like.

We double the recipe and make it in a 7quart crockpot
Thanks for visiting!

Hi Everyone!! Finally having some warm weather that's gonna stick around for a bit here, Thank Goodness!! Able to take little man out to the park and play. A very dear friend of mine I went to school with is having her first baby and I wanted to make her a special card. So I gave the shaker card a try again. This time not so many cuts or details like my first. I love how it turned out. Just need to invest in one them powder brushes  that will keep static away. My sequins were sticking to the plastic sheet. Enjoy this Baby Boy (shaker card)

1st Shaker Card

Hi Friends! Hope you all are doing well. Finally going to have some beautiful weather in the 50's, woohoo! I wanted to share my first ever shaker card. I love watching people make them in YT videos. I think they be so fun to make, add that little special detail to a card. So it took me awhile to get my supplies cause I was looking for the best deal on things. Pretty sure I should have stuck with a more simple design of shaker. I like how it turned out for being my first shaker card. Practice will make perfect, only way to learn.  So here is my 1st Shaker card..please enjoy.

Cricut Explore : P&F clouds, grass, WC hello, DC sun, FMK frame
Darice CS
American Crafts: My Girl Stack
Doodlebug Design Sequins
Black pen
A2 card

*My Notes* I need to find some glue that don't show through the plastic. so I didn't glue the cuts to plastic. I used a SU pop dots under the small cloud. I only did one layer of foam tape and it seems to shake fine, only getting stuck on the pieces of images that aren't glued to plastic. Anyone got any tips for glue that works for that?? I might just use pop dots under the bigger parts next time. 

Thanks for stopping and checking out my first shaker card. Hope you all are enjoying your week, have a great weekend!
