A Little More Conversation - A Contest!

Well... on the verge of Valentine's day, and with all this LOVE in the air... I decided it was high time for me to host another contest. Besides... I need to be baking more, and this poor blog has been feeling lonely!



One of the most popular treats you see at Valentine's day are those little boxes of 'conversation hearts'. personally? I can't stand them! Now, that doesn't mean to say that I don't EAT some every year... (what can I say... you never know if/when your tastes may change!) but invariably.. every year... BLEH.


So... out of respect for the item's popularity, but keeping my tastes and talents in mind... I like to make some Conversation Heart Cookies. Below you'll see some I've made in the past.







This year? I'm giving you a chance to win your very own batch.... (that'd be a dozen)... right in time for Valentine's Day! what's the catch? none. well.. you DO have to leave a comment, and you DO have to live in the Continental US. After that... the handy-dandy random number generator will do the work. Oh, and leave your comment before NOON EST on MONDAY, FEBRUARY 9th.


Really. it's that easy. one comment = a chance to win.

ANNNND... since I'm feeling crazy... I'll even give you a SECOND chance to win. Link to this post on your blog, facebook, or twitter feed, and you'll get another entry. Just come back here after you link me, and leave me a comment saying where you pimped me out.




Can you feel the love tonight?



good... now let's give them somethin' to talk about!

suser said...

Sweet! Those sparkly lips are calling my name. Could my heart say Suck It ?

or

Kiss This?

or

I heart sleep?

Speaking of dirty...Ang - Liam calls his penis "tookie" so be careful.

Kirsten said...
