Let the DUEL begin

Well, maybe not begin, but continue on! It is the 15th and that means I am posting my kit card from the Dueling Hostess! This month is Darlene's turn to hostess ad she sent a fabby dabby kit.
It included (in Darlene's words):
Image is from Art Impression's "Golden Oldies series, entitled BBQ Couple (isn't it fun?!)
DP: Karen Foster Designs: Food & Family Collage; Ants on Parade; Barbecue Bash
DP: Reminisce: Picnic Parade; Grill Master
Stickers: Reminisce: Backyard Bash
Other misc. embellishments are from my stash here, no particular vendor.
She also asked: Please post a favorite barbecue recipe, or a salad or side dish recipe that is a hit with your family when getting together for cookouts.

I just love the immie that was sent and had a great time coloring it up!

My recipe to share is:
Loaded Baked Potato Salad
4lbs taters
1lb bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled
4oz softened butter
1/2c chopped green onions
2c grated cheddar cheese
1.5c sour cream
Salt and pepper to taste

Cook taters and let cool. Cut into chunks. Combine all other ingreds. and fold taters in. Let chill and hour+ then check salt and pepper. Serve!

Make sure you stop at the rest of the blogs to see the other cards in the duel!

WOWzer... you cut out the immie, April! I always admire anyone who does that (I'm much too lazy to do so). And look at your card! It's fantastic!!! I love the colring of the image and how you placed everything so precisely on the card. Awesome!!!

I love Baked Potato Soup! I might give your recipe a try - even though my DH is not a big fan of milk-based soups. Sounds yummy to me!

Omgoodness your coloring of the image is outstanding and your cutting it out is to perfection. I could never do that...well done! Love how you used the wooden oval...could not make them work on my card. Teach me how to color please!

Judy McMullen said...

Wonderful card, April! That BBQ couple are adorable and you've colored and cut them out perfectly! Those designer papers are just perfect and perfectly placed on this great bbq/grill themed card! Love it! I'm intrigued by your recipe for Loaded Baked Potato Soup I'd love to try it. I'm there suppose to be a liquid ingredient for the soup???

Holy roller on that that is good!

Great card and I had a potato salad very similar to your recipe at our Church picnic yesterday! It was yummy and yours sounds great! :)

That couple just puts a smile on my face--I have never seen it before and it is so darn cute!

I love that you cut out the image and all of the great colors.

Your potatoes sound awesome!

Now - about your fabulous card:
Love the platter of food, the little ant trekking by, the sticker above the red & white checked DP and framing the couple in flames!! LOL, it's so fun!

Terry Ladwig said...

Great card April! Love the way you used the papers and the way you used the stickers on the wood oval!! I also love that the ant is peekingover the shoulder of gramdma.....or maybe he's looking at the burger in her hand!

Love it! Your tater salad sounds yummy too!!!
