Nothing's better than a Christmas Cookie -- MM #110 Challenge

I wasn't so sure I was going to be able to post my card this week.  Our internet just came back on today after being down since Friday afternoon.  I was starting to get a little worried.

This week's challenge was to use "Christmas Food" in our card this week.  Well, I have small stamps of candy canes, gingerbread men and peppermint candies, but to me that was the obvious choice.  So I took the week to figure out what I wanted to do.  Friday the idea popped into my head after realizing that our internet, cable and phones were down.   I was contemplating making cookies, but it was a little too warm to turn the oven on, so I figured out another way to make cookies...hahaha!

I had bought a stash of mini Hero Art stamps a few years back and thought some of them would be perfect as round molasses cookies with white frosting sentiments, snowflakes and trees.  I used Tim Holtz's Distress Ink in "Gathered Twigs" to make my molasses cookies and used an EK Success punch to punch out each cookie.  I cut the cookie sheets and cooling rack out of Stampin' Up's "Smoky Slate" card stock.  I sponged around the smaller piece of card stock with SU's "Smoky Slate" ink to make the edges of the pan look baked.  I made the cooling rack from strips of card stock that I glued together.  I stamped the oven mits from a Stampin' Up stamp, but I don't know which set it came from, sorry.  I stamp the oven mits with SU's "Cherry Cobbler" ink.  I had gotten the "Baking Up Fun" dies from Memory Box for free in an order I placed online some time ago and cut out the spoons from Gina K's "Craft" card stock.  I used a strip of designer paper from Echo Park's "Very Merry Christmas" 6x6 paper pack to make it look like a table runner and mounted everything on Gina K's "Pure Luxury White" card stock.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the rest of the beautiful "Christmas Food" cards at Merry Monday's Christmas Challenge #110.
