Tulips and Ladybugs!

This weekend I made cookies for a Bumblebee and Ladybug party put on by Bella Deeva Parties.  This time I used a Deeeelicious Vanilla Almond Sugar Cookie recipe that I got from Bake at 350!  I gotta tell you, they are wonderful!!  I am not a lover of sugar cookies.  I mean, they are alright, just not on my top 10.  These are top 10 worthy!  Honest!  Anyway, I made tulips to go with the bumblebee and ladybug garden theme.  Christy came over to help decorate these little jems and we just knew they were gonna need a little "something" on them to POP!  So after we outlined and flooded them with color we sat there thinking about just how we were gonna do this little POP.  It finally came to me with a little help from my candy jar.  I always have M & M's around the house.  I love them in candy dishes and I LOVE the holiday ones with all the cute colors!!!  So as I stood there wondering how I was going to get this cute little ladybug on my fabulously frosted tulip, it came to me....  Use one of these fabulous little candies that "melt in your mouth, not in your hand"!  Christy had thought of using Skittles, but I didn't have enough.  So, after a few attempts, this is what we came up with......

And here is how they looked at this F A B U L O U S party!!!
Don't they look soooooo cute next to all of those wonderful colors?!!!  I would never have put those colors together, but they are GREAT!!!  I just love it!  Anyway, I gotta say our first official order of Divalicious Cookies went great!  Promise to start posting recipes to a seperate page sometime later this week.  Life is just too sweet not to share!
