Gingerbread Treats

Morning all!
Here's my latest GDT card for the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog!
The theme this week is Gingerbread Treats
The images used by the DT & GDT were kindly supplied by 
Here's my card!

I did plan a totally different card but hey ho, this is how it turned out!
I enjoy seeing where my stash takes me sometimes! lol
I used a scalloped square card base from Craftwork Cards

The papers I have used are from my last years stash & I have
 no idea where they are from I'm sorry!!
I coloured the image with Promarkers then chalked around the outside
 & in the background with Colourbox Q Fluid Chalks Ink Pads 

The ribbon is from Lidl, it's actually meant for gift wrapping but great for crafting too!
The snowflake is cut with a Marianne Creatables Die
That was also from last year & I can't find my dies at the moment!

Here's a side view of my card!
The sentiment is a peel off, for some reason they seem to come 
into their own at this time of year! I also added some buttons from my stash!
I hope you can join in the challenge at 2 Sisters this time!

Stop Press: I have been sorting my craft stuff & have
just now found my snowflake dies! Yay!!!
Ah well there's always next year! lol

  5. Oh, how delightfully sweet, Dawn! No pun intended. Great gingerbread house. How funny that I'm right now being nagged by grandsons to come help them decorate their gingerbread houses. I arrived safely at my son's house a few hours ago and we're going to do our Christmas on Tuesday since the boys are out of school for their holidays that day. On Weds, I travel again to the next son's house. OK, I must go do gingerbread houses. :-D Merry Christmas, in case I don't get by again before then.
