For Brendan

This card is for my grandson Brendan who is celebrating his 12th. birthday today. Happy Birthday Brendan! Where oh where did the time go?!?! When did you become a "preteen"? Yikes!

Brendan is into music big time...he has a guitar and he even has shoulder length hair. This image from AMuse "Rock Star" is the perfect image for his birthday card. I colored it in with my prismapencils and ran it through the oval nesties. Popped it up on SU! pop dots. I added a little bling for the rock star. *grin*
The blue card stock is SU!. And the patterned paper is by AMuse.
Cute card and I think it fits Brendan perfectly.

I just have one last batch of cookies to make/bake and I'm finished baking....whew. These are my all time favorite cookie and I only bake them once a year. Once you read the recipe you will know why...they are definitely not the most healthy cookie. But ohhhh so good! *grin*

Orange Coconut Drops

2 C. sugar 1 C. butter
3 eggs
1 tsp. each salt & baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla 1 tsp. orange extract
3 1/2 C. flour 1 1/2 C. flaked coconut

In large bowl combine all ingredients
except flour and coconut.
Beat at low speed, scraping side of
bowl often, until well mixed.
By hand stir in flour and coconut
until well mixed. Drop by rounded
teaspoonfuls 2" apart on greased
cookie sheets. Bake near center of
350 oven for 8 to 12 minutes until
golden brown on bottom of cookie.

I wish you all a Wonderful Blessed Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by!
