Homespun Christmas Tree Cookie

At Cookie Con, there were lots of fun treats from our sponsors.

One of the best was a brand new cutter from Karen's cookies!

Pam from Cookie Crazie designed it and they made it just for her!

Then Miss Pam asked me (and a whole bunch of other cookie ladies)
 to join her in a little cookie decorating project!
Of course I said yes!
We could use our new Homespun cookie cutter anyway we liked!
So I made these!

They're all sparkly!!!

There's a silver cookie (light grey icing sprayed with Duff silver food spray) 
with a red tree and white pearl ornaments....
...and a silver cookie with a white tree and red pearl ornaments!
Then I got a little crazy with the spray and turned some white sugar pearls silver!
ooooooooooooo... pretty!
So I made a white cookie with a red tree, just so I could use those little silver pearls.
I can't wait to see what everyone else makes!
Oh, right!
No more are all the cookies!
