Gingerbread Joy

Happy Saturday! This is the weekend in which I have to make magic happen. I need to finish my Christmas cards, final decorating projects, bake, make a few gifts...the list goes on and on. I feel incredibly behind on Christmas stuff in general, so we'll see what happens today and tomorrow. So how about a cute card to get me in the mood?


Isn't this gingerbread man from Purple Onion Designs too cute?!? He's one of my favorites to use this time of year. I added all kinds of sparkly stuff to him, including Stickles and Liquid Pearls for buttons and cheeks, and white gel pen for icing. And the candy cane stripe ribbon was just the perfect finishing touch.


If you haven't already done so, you really need to check out the sale that is happening right now at Purple Onion Designs...25% off all stamps until December 15! And, Michele has a fun stamp giveaway on her blog. You could end up being the lucky winner! Enjoy your weekend! I'll be back soon to share my crafty progress this weekend!

Such a cute card - looks good enough to eat! Love those gingerbread men and the candy striped ribbon. Can I ask where you found a good white pen? I've never found one that works well (and I'm determined to!).
Thanks for the inspiration!

I just love your creations! I am one of your followers! Yes, I did go to the sale and placed an order and I actually ordered the same Noteblock. I love those. I also ordered the birthday one.
Thanks so much for the heads up. I've sent your site to my sis-in-law and mother-in-law who also love to make cards.
Keep them coming!
