Shadow Cookie anyone?

Happy Groundhog's Day! Let's all keep our fingers crossed that Punxatawney Phil doesn't see his shadow today! I could use some spring weather here in upstate, western NY.
Yesterday was my SIL, Laura's, birth day, and this is the card I sent her. Can you tell I was in a spring mood? *grin*The bottom of the card base is stamped with the Linen BG stamp (SU) in Versamark, and the top part is stamped with a Paisley BG stamp (CHF). Main image is from Papertrey's Out on a Limb set, and the sentiment is from their Limitless Labels set. I like the pale apricot, olive green and brown together a lot.
So how about some cookies?

I like to make Spicy Groundhog Cookies on February 2nd each year. For my recipe click HERE. Aren't they cute? They are spicy with ginger, cinnamon, and cloves, and are chewy in the middle and crunchy on the edges...YUM! I've been sending them to school with my oldest, but since school was cancelled yesterday due to terrible weather, I guess we get to eat them ALL today! *chuckle* I think my DH would willingly do so if I let him!
