Great card, Sue! Love the bright packages - is he coming my way!? lol! ;0)
Super sweet blog candy, too! My favorite Christmas cookie is one I do not know the name of: my MIL makes them for me, and they are dee-lish! They are these little round balls of nutty, yummy goodness, smothered in powdered sugar! Yummy! If you know what they are, please make me some and send them in those adorable HM packages! lol!

My favorite Christmas cookies are the butter cookies with the strawberry jam in the middle. YUM! I'm getting hungry just thinking about them. :D

Sue said...

Wow, these little guys are sure getting ready for the holidays. Like you I wish I was that prepared!
Love how you colored the presents.
Fun card. My fav cookie are decorated sugar cookies. Although they take the longest to make and decorate, they are the first to go when you put cookies out.

Darling card!!! That was also a lot of coloring on those tiny packages.....beautiful coloring and yes, love your silver cord for a tiny more embellishment. Cute cute and merry!.

Carolina Girl (Cely) said...

Forgot to mention my favorite Christmas cookies. I'm one of those crazy people who like the fruit and nut chewy cookies. But, ok, I'm head over heals in love with "I can't believe 'ems" cookies.

Donna said...

What a darling card! Wish I had that many gifts bought for the holiday season. LOL! My favorite Christmas cookie is the buckeye. Peanut butter and chocolate you can't go wrong!

Cathymac said...

Just adorable, Sue...and so beautifully colored! Love the cheerful colors and papers! Thanks so much for joining us at The Sweet Stop this week! Oh...and my favorite Christmas cookie is super thin, buttery, and crunchy sand tarts!

Stephanie said...

Wonderful cute card. Thanks for playing along at The Sweet Stop.

Donna Ellis said...

Hi, Sue - what a darling card - your coloring is awesome! I tried coloring that image, but it didn't look anything like this - I'll try making the ribbons all one color - that will help - I love this image because it could be for someone's birthday, too. Thank you for visiting my blog today. You mentioned glitter getting all over - even our german shepherd sports a lovely glow these days LOL, but the velvet glitter is not nearly is "billowy" as the ultrafine AND the velvet glitter can be EASILY stamped on, watercolored, copic marker'ed, or traditional markers. Now, my favorite Christmas cookie is chocolate covered peanut butter balls made with all natural peanut butter. hehe

PatsyB said...

I don't know if it is classified as a cookie but I LOVE linzer torte bars. I make the cheater kind but they are fantastic! My friend was German and used to make the real deal! I really miss her and her german cooking! Since I simply can't do the real thing, I honor her memory by making the quickie version!!

Lorraine A said...

Donna Hanley said...

WOW that little mouse is going to need a cookie treat after wrapping and carrying all those gifts. Great card for this challenge. My favorite cookie is a sugar cookie. The problem is my favorite thing is I like to have lots of them, not so good, delish!!! Enjoy your week.

builderb said...

I have a hard time recognizing the different mice, but they sure bring a smile to my face with some of their antics! Really cute card-wonder whats in those boxes? Some food I bet!

builderb said...

Oops! Forgot to tell you my favorite cookie-its a sugar cookie (sprinkles are optional).

That's just such a lovely card Sue, I'm hoping to be able to join in this fortnight, haven't had a lot of time recently. I shocked myself when I got all my Christmas cards together to write.... there's only ONE HM card among them! I was stunned, especially as I got some new stamps for Christmas last year that are Christmas themed! Anyway, my most favourite Christmas cookie is Orange, Pecan and Cranberry, they've become such a favourite that I bake them on and off all year. Recipe here:


Leslie Miller said...

This is adorable! So much color. I love it! The paper is super cute, too.

Casandra Bennett said...

This is such a cute card. I saw it over at Sweet Stop Sketches. :) Hmm...favorite Christmas cookie would be snowball cookies. I started making them when I was a teenager, and usually only have them at Christmas. But molasses cookies go together super quick, and I love the smell of them baking in my oven. Happy Holidays!

Kimberley said...

Such a cute card! My favorite Christmas cookies are called Lemon Ginger Cookies. They just say Merry Christmas with each yummy bite!

Anonymous said...

favorite cookie would have to be my mom's. She created a sugar cookie recipe that makes it so that she can paint on them with food coloring. She then uses colored sugar. They are not only the sweetest cookie but they are masterpieces in themselves. Shes been making them for over 50 years and has now passed the recipe down to me and I have passed it down to my girls also. Thanks for the chance to win you great candy,

Gail said...

This card is so bright & cheerful, and the image just made me smile!
My favorite Christmas cookie is Shortbread cookies!
Luckily I have a friend that stocks me up for the season, cause I couldn't make them if my life depended on it!

Rubber Princess said...

My favorite Christmas cookie is the Blueberry Lemon Crumbles. It has become a family favorite. It sure sounds like we need to compile a cookie cookbook.

Denise ~ Paper Ponderings said...

Such a cute card! My favorite Christmas cookie...hmmmm...I think sugar cookies. Basic, but I LOVE them!

Sandy said...

A free one of course!

Those wee mice could use a little help I think.


Anski said...

Lovely card! And ginger cookies are the best! :)

Patti J said...

Beautiful card - hope those gifties are coming my way - nothing under our bare tree yet! Tee hee... Mmmmmm...cookies! My favorite is a plain old sugar cookie. Boring, I know, but love them!!!

Manetta Kanefsky said...

I have put your candy on my sidebar

Hugs Shaz x

I love your card - so colorful and happy! What a fun image! My favorite cookie is the old fashioned rolled and cookie cutter shaped sugar cookie - frosted of course - because of such good memories I have of making them with my children when they were young. The frosting process was the great finale - I would mix different colors of frosting, put out the toothpicks and the artwork would begin! The more intricate the design using many colors the better. All of the cute little Santa, bell, candy cane, Christmas tree and star shapes were made magical!

Wishing you a nice Sunday! We have our first real snow of the season falling here in this part of WI.
