Sealed with a Kiss

Happy Valentine's Day!
Cookies for Everyone!
Well, anyone that trudges through the 16+ inches of snow we got yesterday and knocks on my back door.
I have 4 very faithful neighborhood children that appear every now and then for a cookie.   Yesterday while it was still snowing I had a knock on my door. (I heard their laughter as they came across the yard in all that snow before they made it to the door, so I knew they were coming!)  First, Dominic very politely asked how my day was going.  Luke quickly followed that up with, do you have any cookies?  I was down to the last half dozen in the cookie jar and told them if I gave them each a cookie I'd have to bake more today.  They were fine with that, took a cookie, thanked me, and returned this afternoon before I even had all the cookies out of the oven.
Although we did get a lot more snow, we were fortunate not to lose power or any trees, and that our wonderful neighbor cleared our driveway with his snowblower. 

I thought I'd try making a more masculine Valentine's Day card using this adorable pair of seals, 
a digi image by Kris at Imagine That.
Instead of bright red, I used a barn red, some die cuts I found on my table and just a touch of bling.  The DP, sentiment stamp, and cricut cartridge I used for the die cuts are all from CTMH.

  13. I'm not sure which red I love more, Debi, the red sugar on the cookies or the barn red on your card. :-D I do like the card, though, and I think the deeper red is perfect. Now, may I have a cookie, please?
