Cookies for Cheryl

A few weeks ago, we had a little cookie giveaway here...and guess who won?!? Cheryl, my friend over at TidyMom!!!

Disclaimer: Cheryl & I have never actually met, but I do consider her a REAL friend.  I'm working on getting her to pack her bags and head to Texas.  She has that whole family thing going on in Missouri, but come on, Cheryl...they can come, too!

Before I made the cookies, a little birdie told me that it was almost Cheryl's birthday.

So, I tweeted Cheryl and very slyly asked her favorite colors.
{You had no idea what I was up to, right Cheryl? *wink, wink*}

I loved her answer....turquoise and red!  Oh, how I loved working with these colors!


And, I tried something new! I've been seeing off-center graphic flowers everywhere lately...stationery, fabric, dishes...even one of my shirts.  I wanted to try it on a cookie.  I present to you....the modern daisy.
{Because I'm all about modern these days!} ;)


{I got a little distracted by my photo editing software "effects" here...}


Scoot on over to TidyMom (a blog I read EVERY day) and wish Cheryl a "Happy Birthday!!!" 

Here is Cheryl's picture from when she got them today:
I am no longer happy with my point & shoot camera.

Happy Birthday, Cheryl!!!

  23. WOW!.....I'm just getting to this post because we were so busy eating cookies last night! LOL.....

    Seriously these cookies are even MORE gorgeous in person and OMG are they YUMMY!!!!!

    I forgot to tell you a little "funny" about when they arrived....My hubby knows about Bridget, but I guess I've never mentioned the name of her blog or cookie biz....

    My daughter and I were eating our cookies and commenting on how SOFT and yummy they were....my hubby looks at the box (With Bridget's GORGEOUS Bake at 350 label on it)and said "I think you're supposed to bake these before you eat them!".......my daughter and I busted out laughing.....MEN!!!!

    Thanks again for making my birthday extra special Bridget....and I'm so lucky to call you my FRIEND! ♥.....and I hope to make it to Texas one day Ü

  29. I check your blog every day to see what fun things you are up to! I'm never disappointed! I am so in awe of your designs-I wish you'd give a class-come to Kansas would you! I'm wondering about the dots as well-are they some sort of edible sheet that you lay on before the frosting dries? My birthday is April 26th-just in case you wondered? :)

  30. I check your blog every day to see what fun stuff you are cooking up! I am never disappointed-always in awe! I'm wondering about the dots, too. Are they some sort of edible sheet that you lay on before the frosting dries? My birthday is April 26th in case you were wondering-and I love purple, red and yellow together! :) Thanks for inspiring me.
