Merry Monday Gingerbread

Hello creative friends.  It's Merry Monday time again.


This week our Kreative Kristie chose the challenge.


I don't know about you, but I love gingerbread. 
 Especially at Christmas.
Unfortunately, I only have one gingerbread stamp.
But it's a cute one.

I stamped and diecut him with the coordinating die. 
Then I diecut him 2 more time from Baked Brown Sugar cardstock.
By stacking them up, I got the depth of a cookie.

Rudolph Day is going on at Sarn's.
We have to take 2 Christmas cards to that challenge.

Here's the second, from the same set.


Since I used some snippets for the gingerbread man and the tag,
I'm off to
for another chance on the swings.

I hope you'll be in the mood to make a Christmas card
and join us at

Do go take a peek at the wonderful cards the Design Team has come up with.

I'm so glad you could stop by.

Enjoy!

Bonnie, you've made two beautiful cards. The gingerbread man is so cute and I love your ribbon.

The decorated Christmas tree is so pretty, too.

You must really have a big stash of Christmas card by now. Good for you.

Such a fun gingerbread man card Bonnie, yet with your lovely fresh look still. Am scouting round here for a gingerbread man - I printed one off and he ran away! Still giggling here at being picked over at Merry Monday :))

Hugs, Di xx

Di again

Am laughing at your comment re. the snippets growing rather than diminishing :) Same here! I wonder if we get to hoard even more knowing there's the Playground?

I found the gingerbread man - he was hiding behind Parsnip! :)

Oh 2 perfectly bright & lovely cards. I LOVE gingerbread - anytime! Your little guy is adorable and thanks for reminding me about that elegant folder. Really dressed up little G. Liked that a lot! Loved the green tree and that spiffy Kars EF. I'm so thankful you & Susan put me on the track of that one. It really does such wonders on a background & is perfect for this perky little green tree. TFS & Hugs too.
