Valentine's Cookies 2012

Here are the cookies I made for Valentines day.  I tried to improve the designs from last year.  I have taken elements from cookies I have seen and liked. Valentines is one of my favorite cookie making holidays.  In an email conversation with someone who is my cookie "mentor" I said "I found my bliss, who knew it would take the form of pink royal icing".

The variety of cookies I made for Valentines this year.

I like these little rosebuds. I have seen them on other cookies and cakes and wanted to learn how to make them.
The stems still need some work, I was having icing issues. :-)
I saw someone else use black on their cookies I think it really pops.
A couple of the dots got smashed, picked up too early.
Simple design, but I kind of like it.
I need to come up with something to do at the base for the stems.
