Sugar Cookies!

I love sugar cookies, they are so much fun to make and to decorate and to devour!
On Valentine's day I made Cinnamon Roll Cookies for my hubby! He loved em! They are basically a sugar cookie dough rolled out with butter rubbed on it, brown sugar and cinnamon sprinkled heavily on top. Rolled all up, cut then place on a cookie sheet and bake. Remove from the oven and drizzle with cream cheese frosting!

I'm told they are super yummy! I took a bunch to work and they all disappeared! It was wonderful!
Well, my sugar cookie recipe makes a lot of dough so what to do with all the rest???
It was Valentine's Day and I wanted to make heart shaped cookies. Too bad I don't have a heart cookie cutter, so sad. BUT I do have a maple leaf! Odd that I would have that and not a heart, I know! So I made Vancouver Olympics Cookies!

Sweet little Birthday card

Sunday was my sister-in-law's birthday so I created a card I hope she will love!
I used 2 shades of pink, a red and white. I was a little nervous after I got all the pieces cut out that it wouldn't tie together very well. I didn't know what color inks to use, I don't have all the same ones as the paper. I had to use pink, red and purple and I didn't have any ribbon to match it at all! But it turned out great, I love it! I hope she enjoys it! It's going in the mail today!
The center of each of the flowers is a large dot of white glitter, a little hard to tell from the photos. After I finished the card I stamped the envelope with white, it says "I Love You." You should be able to see it in this shot, bottom left corner. Took forever to dry, I hope it's not smudged by the time it gets to her!

Valentine's fun!

I got this great idea from Creature Comforts and printed off these super cute little tags. I went to my local craft store and found the cutest little tins. I've made these for the kids for Valentine's Day! I can't wait to send these off in the mail!
