Gingerbread Holiday Hugs!

I made this card for today's CAS sketch challenge over on Split Coast as well as the Waltzingmouse October Christmas card challenge held in the WMS forum - to use food on your card!.

I stamped the group of three candy canes in red on the card, than stamped the gingerbread men on Really Rust and cut them out layering them over the candy canes with foam tape.

I added black sticky pearl eyes and buttons, stamped the sentiments in two colors of ink and drew the frame around the edges with a 01 Micron fine black pen.

My stamps are from the newly released Waltzingmouse Set called Candy Jar Christmas Fillers.

You may have noticed I've been missing in action for the last several days -  we had our annual Church Fair this past Friday and Saturday and two friends and I run a table selling stamped cards and crafts - so I was madly working on last minute projects as well as organizing and pricing all the items I had managed to finish!

Here are a few pictures of our table.

 Over the two days we sold $227.00 from our table - pretty good when you consider most things were between $2.50 and $4.00!
And here are Gwen and Nicole (Gwen is the daughter of Elizabeth working with me and Nicole is the granddaughter of Sandy,  co-chairperson of the Fair)-  the theme for the fair this year was The Wizard of Oz - so they were dressed up like the bad and good witches! They had such a good time running around and also helped us stamp "thank you" on our brown lunch bags we used for sales.

So now things will be a little less hectic for me and I will settle back into my regular stamping routine!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Candy Jar Christmas
Paper: white - PTI, Really Rust - SU
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Palette L'Amore Red, Adirondack Butterscotch
Accessories: foam tape, black pearls - Amuse, 01 micron fine Line Black Pen
