I just got in a set from Inspired By Stamping called Sugar and Spice that's PERFECT for this challenge. Look at these happy little gingerbread men (and women)!
To create this one-woman-homage to Christmas cuteness, I cut out the gingerbread cookies from craft paper and embossed their smiles. I added little teensy tinesy pearls for their buttons, and I may have cursed my large German fingers whilst attempting to get the glue side down!
I also wanted to play along with this week's sketch challenge over at Mojo Monday and the Layer it Up Challenge at Little Red Wagon.
So I used the sketch and layered. And then I layered some more. And then I added snowflakes and more of those stinkin teensy pearls. And then I sat back and grinned at the cute couple.
I'm also sending this over to Inspired By Stamping's customer gallery contest.
I'm really excited because I'm having my second annual EPIC Christmas Cookie bake (yes, that is the official, trademarked title) on the first weekend of December. You can be sure you'll be seeing pictures of that fiasco. Last year, only one person showed up so it wasn't thaaaat EPIC.... but hey! This year I actually have some friends so woohooo! Although being the new person in town is not optimal, it gave me the opportunity to hone my friend-making skills. There's a bright side to everything, right?
Thanks for stopping by! Follow my blog and leave me a comment, and I'll be sure to return the favor!
