Gingerbeary-Does Gingerbread

Greetings to all of you and welcome to my second Christmas card of the year. Yes, I did say second-I made a Snowman in January of this year so technically this is my second. This card came about because of the Tea pot Challenge over at SCS. Our challenge was to use a Gingerbread image. Well that wasn't hard for me as I love Gingerbread!!!
Here is the card and matching envelope together. If you can't tell how much I love Gingerbread after this card-there is no way I will be able to convince This image is from High Hopes called Gingerbread Couple. I bought this from Stamp & Create with a gift certificate that I won from the challenges I cool is that. I love this stamp!See what I did with the stamp. I cut it in half and use the girl on the bottom and the boy on the top....pretty cool huh! This is the sentiment on the inside:
Cookies and cocoa
and gingerbread spice...
Hope your holidays
are full of
everything nice.

These are the removable tags out of the pocket. One is a Gingerbread Recipe and one is a Gingerbread Cookie recipe. Both of these are stamps that I have collected. Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you are inspired to make some "Gingerbread"!!!

Loads of gingerbread fun on this card. Love the happy couple :) I love the smell of gingerbread but alas am allergic to ginger so can't eat it - you'll have to eat mine for me LOL! Great set and wonderfully done. Have a great weekend.

I had a feeling you liked gingerbread, Gingerbeary! This is just like something magical you'd see at Santa's workshop. Even all the punching trims look like fancy icing!
