art everyday, day 28

i've been working like a fiend to get my cookie swap packages DONE...i'm nearly there...just gotta bake some cookies for one of my swap buddies (the other podner's not getting any cookies 'cuz of her country's rather strict customs about homemade food goods)... i've made my batter & i'm gonna take a break before i bake those cookies, okay?! but before i do that, here are some cards i made for my cookie swap pals (which i submit for katspaws' AEM challenge, day 28>>>whoa, the month's almost over!)>>> this is for her>>>she told me she loves purple, eclectic & whimsical things...& OMG, i just received her most yummy swap package in the mail yesterday>>>bec. of camera probs, i will post pics of all the goodies she sent me later>>>but wow, i'm so thrilled! thanks SUSAN!!!! i *heart* everything you made/sent! & this is for her>>>she was one of those wicked EARLY birds who sent me my cookie swap goodies a couple of months ago!!!!!!!!!!! since i used a primary color scheme for her recipe holder, i thought i'd do the same for her xmas card. also, since she lives in australia, where it is SUMMER at the moment, i found that very appropriate birdie sticker... just a peek of one of the recipes i put in for susan...i die cut a mini file folder & attached my recipe for these wickedly decadent cookies... what it looks like when you pull the card out...spiffy nifty, right? at the moment, i'm a very tired little beaver...gotta get some shut eye & then back to the kitchen & bake those cookies. happy tuesday! Posted by Picasa
