Inventory Challenge #67

Good morning everyone....wishing you all a very happy FRIDAY! Danielle and I, along with the rest of our fabulous teammates, welcome you to our Inventory Challenge.
Our theme this week is "Love from My Kitchen" something cooked/baked".
OK!!! Easy-peasy!!! My card today features a Special Edition Tilda holding a basket of "Valentine" heart cookies. She is sitting on a cabinet by Haenglar. I featured her on a Nestie circle with a Nestie heart in the background. The papers are from various sources, including Magnolia, BoBunny and Flair Designs "What's Cooking" collection.
The inside of the card features Chef Tilda from the Yummy for Your Tummy Collection.

Also featured today is a collection of Valentine hearts I baked to go along with the card. I baked heart sugar cookies with a decorative border and an almond in the center. Also featured is a chocolate heart cookie with chopped pecans, dipped partly in chocolate and sprinkled with chopped pecans. Next, I baked chocolate peanut butter hearts and sandwiched them together with melted chocolate and a dab of strawberry jelly in the center. Then I sprinkled a little confectioners sugar on top.
Those babies just melt in your mouth!

Now, I'd love to invite you to visit my talented teammates and view their awesome

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. Your comments make my day. Wishing you a fabulous weekend. Hugs, Christina
