Hearts to you.....















An exercise in time consumption to say the least.....  because ....















I forgot that I had given away my heart shaped cookie cutters and obviously forgot to buy another set.  Sooooo........ too late once I had the dough mixed wasn't it?  Nothing for it but to cut out some heart shapes from paper ... and then cut out around each with a little knife.  By the time I was done....I WAS done..... phew..... who makes more work for ourselves than us?















I made several different sizes and had fun icing and  stacking ..



















Making a cup of tea in my special mug was much easier.... hahahha....




































This little doggie has intrigued me since I got this mug several years ago... must make one just like him some day.....

Hope you are all having a great day...

Oh no! That would be a lot more work without a cookie cutter! Looks like you did a fabulous job though! I like that puppy too!

Sweet of you to put so much into those beautiful looking cookies. They are just the perfect touch for Valentine's Day. You probably do all sorts of sweet things through out the year....Shelly

Wow--your hearts are definitely prettier than mine--AND I would never cut them out without the cutters. (I've been known to draw hearts on round cookies, however.) Happy Valentine's Day.....
