Lila Loa challenge

Hello All!

I follow LilaLoa.  I love her blog!  Oh, how she can make me laugh!  Plus, her cookies are amazing.  She has a challenge this month to sketch a design and then make the cookies.  I decided to join in the fun.

My girlfriend, Kasey, bought me a new shamrock cutter.  I decided to make a couple designs with it that were inspired by Lila Loa. 
As you can see, I was thinking of using my frame cutter as well.  Couldn't think of what to do with that one :(

I made some shamrocks for Kasey

I then made some round cookies with blue hearts. 

I used gold dust for the outer heart. you can either use vodka or extract to mix with the dust to paint on.  I have always used vodka. We only have the good stuff in the house right now :)

I also tried some pink heart cookies.  I love my AmeriColor Electric Pink!

I had to get both bags ready for I would need to use them one after another for each cookie.

I flooded the cookie with white then put pink dots on right away.

Then I took a toothpick and drug it through all the dots to get the heart look.

Thanks for looking!
Have a great rest of the week :)
