Cookies Shaped Like Spellbinder Dies!!!! " :)

Hi everyone!

A few weeks ago, I discovered an awesome place to buy cookie cutters and supplies called Karen's Cookies.
I saw some cutters that they designed themselves and knew I HAD to have them because they remind me of  Spellbinder Labels One dies.

Just after I received my order, they started a cookie decorating contest for cookies created with the frame cookie cutters that I had just bought. The prize is a $100.00 gift certificate!
I told hubby that I wanted to enter but didn't really have time. He talked me into it. I'm thinkin' not so much because of the contest, but because he gets to eat the cookies after I take the pictures! :)

Here are my cookies....

I discovered Royal Frosting a few months ago and love what you can do with it! :)

I bought both styles of the frame cutters in both sizes.

I had fun doing the "wet on wet" leaves! :)

Here is my order from Karen's Cookies. You can see the dies plus some other fun stuff I will be playing with soon! :)

See what I mean about it looking like the Labels One Spellbinder die?
I'm feeling a "decorated cookie treat bag" post coming on!  Maybe with some Labels One Want2Scrap bling!  ;)
I would love it if you left a comment. Not sure if it would help me win the contest, but what would it hurt...right?  :)
