Happy Birthday America!

Yippee...... I was able to have one last big "play day" with cookies this week. I had a patriotic order to fill, so I was planning on making additional patriotic cookies. I looked at lots of my favorite patriotic from others and came up with some fun stuff. :-) I'm getting in my cookie fix before I leave in EIGHT days. (Can you believe it is almost here?!)

Some country patriotic hearts.....


I've done all of these at Memorial Day, but I knew they would be popular for the Fourth.


I hand cut these USAs using a template I made. My inspiration came from Amifsud.


These cool fireworks hearts were inspired by my good friend, Cindy M.


I love these "postage stamp" type flags inspired by Amifsud.


Hee hee.....red white and blue ladybugs......love them!


Patriotic 'pillars. :-)))))


Patchwork patriotic stars and hearts. I did a similar thing at Valentines Day, so I thought I'd try it with red, white, and blue. :-)




I love this style of balloon! My inspiration came from Amifsud (can you tell I LOVE here work?!).


I love how all of them look together. Doesn't it make you want to stand up and salute? lol I wish I could add music to my blog. You can be sure God Bless America would be playing. :-)


Next week I'm making some ocokies for my Ukraine mission team and then bunches and bunches of little flowers to share with the Ukranians I meet. :-) I can't wait. That will be all the cookies from me.....probably for the summer. :-( We'll see. When I come back from my trip (July 25), I'll need a bit of recovery time.....and then I've got a long list of things to accomplish before my foot surgery on August 11. But you can be sure that if it is possible to fit in a batch or two of cookies, I will be doing it. ;-)

Happy Independence Day to America!

Queen Bee.....you are a sweetheart. Thanks so much for your kind words. It is always a privilege to share and to get to know more cookie friends. I'm going to have to look more closely at your blog and new business. Blessings to you. :-)

Gosh Pam there you go again making my jaw drop. I tell you. I have yet to post any of my sugar cookies. But you really do put me to shame. I thought I had the patience and the love for them. But I tell you. You have gotten me beat.

Also thanks for stopping by my blog.

Take Care

Hi Pam! These are just beautiful!! They are all sooo good, I especially love the ladybug!! I am going to miss seeing your cookies for a while, but I know you are doing great things on your mission trip..have a wonderful and safe trip!! Laurie

Thanks Mara. I'm glad you like them....but I certainly don't want to put you to shame. Keep doing something you love and you'll improve with time. The only reason I've gotten seasoned with decorating cookies is I've done it SO MUCH in the last 9 months. Most recently, I've baked and decorated AT LEAST once a week, and more often than not, two to three times per week! Trust me, if you do cookies even once ever couple of weeks, it will make such a difference in your abilities.

Your blog is cool! I enjoyed reading some of the entries. Your PB cookies with the imprints turned out so beautiful. And they look so yummy. :-)

Thanks Laurie for your sweet comments and well wishes. I love those lady bugs too. :-)))) There are numerous ways you can do them with the red white and blue. I'll have to try them again the next time I do patriotic cookies.

Boy, I'm going to miss decorating cookies AND conversing with my cookie friends! I know I'll be busy, but you all will have a piece of my heart as I go to the Ukraine. :-)

Your work is amazing, Pam! I love all of your COOKIES... isn't CC great? An inspiration source really!! I am so happy to hear you are almost ready, and marveled at what you've accomplished for our Lord's praise... have a nice day!

April said...

Very well done! So enjoy your "Americana" themed cookies. Blessings to you and to the ones you'll meet.

CookieCrazieLady said...

Thanks dear Bea. You are such a sweetheart. Yes, I LOVE CC! I just wish we could have our own cookie site, ya know? I'll look forward to sharing all about my trip when I return.

Thanks so much April. I love the americana theme too. :-) Blessings right back to you.

Kami said...

Such cute ideas! Absolutely adorable. I haven't made any sugar cookies in quite awhile but now I think I'll have to make some again. :)

Cindy said...

So many great cookies! I'll just comment on a couple that caught my eye -- I like the black outlines between the stripes on your flags, that really sets them off. Also love the ladybug with the double colored dots, so cute!

CookieCrazieLady said...

Thanks so much, Kami and Cindy. :-)

Kami.....oh I hope you do end up making some sugar cookies. :-))))

Hi MiniBaker.....nice to meet you. :-) Thanks so much for your very kind words. I can't wait to get back to baking at the end of September. I'm having foot surgery Tuesday.....so it will be six week from then. :-( Oh well.....I'll keep up with others blogs and goodies like yours to keep me happy. :-)
