Sunflowers, Sopa de Fideo and Ambrosia

 Hey there, hope your weekend is starting well. My thoughts and prayers remain with those in Ian's path, past and present.
I'm popping in to share this art journal page in my Puns and Roses Gluebook journal. I've used a digi stamp and SeeDe's sunflower and sentiment stamps, Spellbinders label die and some little card stock embellishments (dragonflies and squirrel). Also, strips of 4 different washi tapes. I've used Promarkers, colored pencils and Distress Inks to color the images and a base of scrapbooking paper from my stash, brand unknown. I used Versafine Clair to stamp the sunflower and sentiment.

And now for some food to share for Rain's Thursday Art & Dinner Date!
(Sopa De Fideo Con Carne)
from Rachel Cooks with Love You Tube

And for dessert:
7 Cup Ambrosia Salad (Our Recipe)
1 cup Cool Whip (or whipped cream)
1 cup sour cream
1 cup chopped nuts (we use walnuts)
1 cup mini-marshmallows
**The following ingredients are drained of all juice before measuring:**
1 cup mandarin orange slices
1 cup pineapple chunks or tidbits
1 cup chopped maraschino cherries
In large serving bowl, combine whipped cream and sour cream well. Fold in orange, pineapple and nuts, mixing well. Fold in cherries and marshmallows and combine gently. Cover bowl with plastic wrap or airtight lid and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Keep refrigerated and covered. Eat within 3-4 days for best flavor/texture. (It gets a little liquid-y at bottom after first day, which is why draining the ingredients is important. We usually keep it stirred to last until we can eat it all.)

Thanks for visiting! XXO

I'm glad you managed to join us another time before this challenge ended. No one has shared a squirrel yet, and your sunflower journal page is wonderful. I like that pretty little lady with her sunflowers. Thanks for sharing with us at AJJ. And ambrosia is not a very northern style dessert, but I like it. I like how you add a cup of everything. I am going to have to try this sometime. I've printed it out. Hope that's ok. hugs-Erika

I really love the way you described the sunflower. And I love the dies you used on the project, too. You have a really great command of composition and I really like this beautiful page you shared with us at Art Journal Journey using Neet's theme. You got in just under the wire, and it looks like I finally caught up visiting all the wonderful people who visited at AJJ this month.

The last couple of comments wouldn't publish from my phone but it seems to be working now. Love your journal page. The sunflower drew me in. It's a fun page. Thanks for sharing the ambrosia salad recipe. Been looking for the recipe for next weekends Thanksgiving supper.

Sun Flowers come with new meaning as the Ukrainians struggle to save their land and their freedom, so this was a particularly appropriate choice for today's post. As for your food ...I love Mexican food and I love Ambrosia Salad, so I would have gladly sat down at your table and I might add the Ambrosia Salad probably wouldn't have lasted long enough, at my house, to need stirring :) Delightful post, Aimeslee ...

Awesome journal page my friend. I need to get my art journal page going again. It's been years since I put anything in it. Thanks for the inspiration and for the recipes my friend.
