Cristin's COOKIE CHALLENGE 2 Animal Print Cookies

For our 2nd COOKIE CHALLENGE, we all made Animal Print cookies! Thanks to everyone that played along! I just love it when we all play together and share our creations with each other during a cookie challenge.

These were my zeba print & leopard print in various pinks, browns and black.
SugarBelle created a wonderful tutorial for us on how to create animal print cookies. If you haven't seen it yet, you have to check it out. She is THE COOKIER and one of my absolute idols. Click on the picture below to link to SugarBelle's tutorial and make your own animal print cookies:

Since my niece is a Barbie fan, I added a Barbie silhouette to my animal print cookies for a party we are having for her today.
For those that want to get to know our cookiers a little better, I created this spreadsheet of all the cookie bakers that I idolize (108 so far). You can use the sheet to find their Facebook pages and become a fan. It also includes their name (where available) so that we comment on their posts a bit more personalized. Click on the picture below to download a copy for your use. If you are a cookier and you're not on the list and want to be, just let me know if I've left anyone off.

Thanks again to everyone that played along in our 2nd COOKIE CHALLENGE! My mind is already swirling with ideas for our next cookie challenge! Stay tuned...
