Another creative Sunday

Some of my Sundays start a bit late, like 11 am as early... my sweetheart fixes me breakfast: coffe with milk and some churros, and wakes me up when it´s ready. I LOVE churros... they are a deep fried Spanish pastry, and they taste wonderful to my buds

If some day you have the chance to come to Spain, these churros it´s a MUST. Here they are served with chocolate milk that looks like a chocolate pudding where you dip the churros and you eat them... yuuummmmm... I like to have them dusted with white granulated sugar and a pinch of powdered cinnamon instead.
That combination wakes me up and leaves me in a happy state of mind. Ready to take a shower and start crafting.
Today I finished a card I want to participate in Softpencil challenge #17. The challenge was to use bling or brads or both, I put blings here and there, hope they can be seen.

I colored this overly cute Japanese girl with colored pencils, added a flower rhinestone on her flower and gold paint for the details. The papers are double sided wrap paper I got at a gift store. I added a butterfly and letters I cut with my cricut (it reads hello in Spanish), some tiny punched butterflies.

After I finished the card I started fixing lunch, we had some leftovers and a soup. I´ve never tried this recipe before and I have to say it would be my favorite from now on.

This is the recipe I followed: Brocoli Cheddar Soup. If you like a nice cup of soup you have to try this one, you won´t be disappointed. I changed a few things though because I didn´t have them at hand, so I put gouda cheese instead of cheddar cheese and I skipped the paprika.
