Now for this weeks challenge sketch:

You know how I love my bears, and I have mentioned that I love pumpkins, well there is another love in my life and that is Gingerbread. (bet your wondering by now if there is anything I don't like..lol) I have a very cool collection of Gingerbread stamps. This one is from Stampassions called Gingerbread Recipe Quilt. Isn't she so sweet!! It has an actual Gingerbread recipe.
I used papers Debbie Mumm's Holiday stack from this years collection. My image was colored with pencils and I sponged on some tea dye distress ink. I mini corsage pin that is tucked in the bow. The gingerbread house is an acrylic ornament that I have had in my collection for a few years. The swirl peppermint corner treatments were made from cardstock paper.
Here is a picture of the inside of my card. There is a different stamp with a recipe for Gingerbread cookies and more fantastic Gingerbread men . I just love this card....it would look fantastic displayed in my kitchen at Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you play along with us in the challenge. I love visiting your blogs to see what you have created. Let me know if you need this Gingerbread recipe!!! lol
