Lucky in Love-Scratch Cards

Who doesn't love scratching off the silver boxes on lottery tickets or gift cards to see the message underneath, it's at least one of my favorite things. Thanks to Pinterest, I learned how to make those. It's one of the easiest things and I loved making these cards.

All you do is write your message, laminate it or they said covering it in packaging tape works just as well. Then, mix two parts metallic paint with one part dish soap. I had to do two or three layers to cover the writing, but I'm so happy with how these turned out. It works so well!

Valentine's Cookies

With several phone calls to my sister, I love these sugar cookies that I made, the love letter ones especially which I think are perfect for a missionary.

The pink ones are actually peanut butter cookies. After I made the dough i added a two caps of red food coloring and rolled them in red and white coarse sugar. The hugs instead of kisses, were put in the middle half way through baking. I found if I put them in at the beginning the chocolate melts too much.
