Irish hearts and St. Pat’s odds ‘n ends

Here’s the last few cookies that made their way into my St. Pat’s themed cookie basket.  This week, other obligations have kept me from my cookie decorating dreams, and it’s killing me!  Hopefully, I can get to something new and spring-like this weekend….

For this set, I played around with common images for shamrocks and their flowers.

The Irish hearts were based on the simplest Celtic designs I could find.

And red – green’s complementary color – was added for love and balance.  Also, it’s my favorite color, so it’s hard to leave that Super Red food color bottle alone.  (:
