Valentine cards!!!

Ok, here I am again. I was not going to post again till Monday, but I could not wait to share these beautiful cards that I made at a Angel stamp class last night. What a treat!!! I really did need a Valentines card for my hubby, and now I have 3, plus a cute little box. These cards and boxes were made using the stamps. Also punches, Spellbinder dies, glitter, Cuttlebug embossing folders, and ribbon. OOOOH! LA! LA! Love is in the air!!!

This cute little box was so much fun to make. Mostly paper folding and using coasters for the cover. Not sure about the paper, but it was adorable. Very fun box to make. If I can figure out how to do it again, I will post some directions.

Ok, a real quick post on Fiber. If you are looking for a yummy dinner meal that will give you lots of fiber about 14 grams, than look no further than 15 Bean Soup with extra black beans. Go to your nearest grocery store and look on the dry bean isle. You will find both packages of 15 Bean Soup and black beans there. Take them home and rinse and soak over night together. Then put them in your crock pot along with some bacon, onion, a little salt, and the package of soup mix that comes with the beans. Put a lid on it and let it cook while you are away at work. I added some cornbread to the meal. I buy my own cornmeal to make my cornbread, because the pre- packaged kind has hydrogenated oils. There is usually a very good recipe on the package to follow in case you have not made it from scratch. What I did to give it fiber was added 2 scoops of the Clear Fiber and I added some flax seeds. It looked sorta like it had bo-weavels in it, but I knew it did not. It was very, very good and I was able to put some fiber into my non fiber cornbread. My family totally enjoyed the meal and we were able to finish out the day with our fiber needs.

SO there you go!!! Hope everyone has a great weekend and eat lots of FIBER!!!!
