You know me, gotta make cookies for every holiday!

Say you love your mom this mother’s day with cookies cards!   Because nothing says “I love you” more than sweets.  A little lovin from the oven, now she can eat your words, this is NOT a crumby card…ha ha ok Ill stop with the cookie puns but they are so good.  I had to share.
This time I changed up my sugar cookies with some watercolor (food color) painting.  It is so easy to do and a lot of fun!  I might be painting more cookies from here on out.  Definitely a lot quicker then mixing 6 different colors.

Thanks to tara for the adorable hand written “mom, you are…” tags that are the perfect touch.

Put a TINY dab of food coloring on a plate, mix in a little water.  Use a test cookie to practice on.  You don’t want the food coloring to be too watery.

 Fill up a macaroon box with the gift fill and place cookies inside.  Wrap it up and put a cute “mom you are” tag.  Then give some sweet cookie goodness.
