For the love of Pim's...

OK this one was made just for the fun of it, and I really love that it is crazy and a little over the top, LOL!
It will ring a bell with my french friends specifically... ;-)
You might not know very well the famous french cookies brand "LU". Their cookies are delicious and in the past you could find some of them in the US but with difficulty sometimes. LU has since been bought by a big american company so now more LU cookies are imported in the US and you can easily find "le petit Ecolier" (cookie + chocolate bar on top) which is my daughter's favorite cookie, or my favorite the "Pim's" (a moist cookie with fruit filling on top (rasperry or pear or orange) wrapped in a crunchy chocolate shell. I just saw that there is a new version with chocolate mousse inside!
If you haven't tried them yet, it is time to!! You won't regret it, they're yummy! :-)
So the other day I was eating raspberry Pims (my favorite flavor) and I noticed the picture of the different flavors on the side of the package. It made me think of the little squirrel in the new Paper trey Ink set " A punny Valentine" and I wanted to make a card with the squirrel eating a Pims cookie.. :-)
I cut the tag "le chocolat" from another box of LU cookies "Le chocolatier"."Le chocolat", my squirrel and his cookie and the big Pims at the bottom are all on pop-dots, but of course on that pic with the flash it looks all flat...:-S The squirrel was made from clear embossing on brown paper.
Making that card was fun and looking at it makes me smile and reminds me of my love for those cookies!! It would be best suited to a lay-out for a scrapbook page but I don't have pictures of me indulging in my Pims addiction...(Luckily! ;-))....

Hehehe... No kidding?!

I grew up with LU cookies in Redmond Washington all the way on the other coast. I'm in NY now, though, busy_bee.

Thanks for hanging out at Gina's party until the very end. I noticed you replied back to me. =)

ooooh, chocolate the fruit-topped moist ones are so yummy but I love cream sandwiches too. LOL can't have all that anymore while nursing my son though - he's got some serious food allergies; thankful I'm Asian and eat rice!

Happy New Year!

ps: great card!

Oh this is so cool! I love that the little squirrel is eating a Pim's!

And I looooooooooooooooove Pim's! The raspberry is my favorite too, but the chocolate mousse sounds good!

Thanks for the smile!

Mmmm! This card looks yummy! I don't think I've ever tried these, but I'll have to keep a look out for them. I recognize the ribon and brad from Target! I just bought some of those yesterday, aren't they cute!?!

PS - I never made it over here to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! So I hope you enjoyed your holidays!
