Invite to a Yummy Occasion!

Good Morning & Happy Hump Day!!  I've been working on several things for the upcoming "Count Down to the Holidays Crop" starting TOMORROW at Scrap-Friendzy, that I can't show you until this weekend.  BUT, here is something I can show you that relates to a project or two for the Crop!
Every year for the past 5 years, my girlfriends, moms (mom & MIL) and other family have gotten together around Christmas for a Cookie Exchange brunch.  In keeping the spirit alive for this year, we're at it again!
I'm not sure if you've ever participated in a cookie exchange, but we all love doing this each year!  I have some wonderful cooks/bakers in my family.  My mother in law makes these awesome little pecan cup type cookies among many OTHER yummy treats!  YUMMO!!  And my mom, she always finds a super neat cookie recipe too.  I end up making about 15 dozen cookies - mostly because I can't decide on just one or two recipes!!!  I ask everyone that comes to bring 5 dozen cookies.  There are usually 10-12 of us and we all make something different.  Some ladies bring two different recipes, others just do 5 dozen of the same.  Whatever the choice is, we have at least 10 DIFFERENT cookies that we all get to go home with.  And even better yet, you don't have to make all these different cookies yourselves. 
So, there's all my blah blah blah, :) and here's this year's cookie exchange invite. 
I think it's my favorite Cookie Exchange Invite so far!

Paper - Cardstock all from my stash; printed paper used for the Oven Mitt - Hobby Lobby, super cute Christmas Tree print
Cricut/Design Studio - From My Kitchen Cartridge for the Recipe Card, Rolling Pin, Oven Mitt & Recipes word; Stretch Your Imagination (I think) for the Gingerbread Man
Cuttlebug:  Swiss Dots & Distress Stripes Embossing Folders
Miscellaneous - Homemade text - Font pack from Lettering Delights; Doodling - all by hand, invite information & details - computer generated using Papyrus & LD Playful fonts; Flat backed black pearls and jeweled heart - Michaels; And of Course - Googley Eyes!
Hope you're having a great day!
Happy Craftin'!
