Today was a busy day. I couldn't wait to get started on my holiday cards. (Even though I am behind so many of you.) I worked with the folder template and carry out my gingerbread theme. The paper is from Heidi Grace and the cardstock is Bazzill. Lots of fun embossing in pink and adding all the ribbon and frills.
The glass block uses the same Heidi Grace paper and I stamped the center image in a retired SU gingerbread house and then couldn't wait to try the broken glass method using the ultra thick embossing powder. I still need to add the bow to the top and light it from the inside. Can't wait to plug it in.

Okay, today's project is finally finished. Couldn't wait to get home from holiday traveling to put the finishing touches on it. I used the metal sheets from Sencie Cady to emboss the roof top and the Love Elsie paper line to paper the bird house. Really wanted a grungy look to it so I splattered it with white ink and used corrugated torn in random peices for a "bird built" look to it. This will go really well with my gingerbread collection for the holiday. Hope you like it.
***Sorry for the poor quality of the image with the picket fence. Low batteries will do that to ya.***

Okay, since I can't seem to move as fast as most of you in blog-land. I am posting my latest project. This Advent clipboard is a countdown to Christmas that I used library card envelopes to slip ideas into and prompt some holiday spirit. A fun project to do with the family.

Hello to all you girls out there in blogger land. Check out that FABULOUS banner that was created especially for me by NICOLE SEITLER. Nicole is so talented and produced such great work in a short amount of time. I would recommend you take a look at her site and see all the wonderful goods and services she offers. Thanks so much Nicole, I just love what you have done.

Cindy from Imagine.dreame.create had a challenge posted on her site for a Monday challenge. I can not possibly work as fast as she can so I am using her sketch to put my own spin on challenge. Taylored Expressions has a beautiful card that uses metal peices on her cards and I thought I'd incorporate that idea as well. I am happy with the outcome since I am a HUGE gingerbread fan, I just keep playing with my cookie stamps.
So, here it goes, my current projects for the holidays. I am a gingerbread fanatic and you will see this theme appear on a regular basis in my holiday projects. The three trees that I completed were using some Anna Griffin paper from my stash, rubons, my Cricut and bits of lace and buttons. Lots of fun and lots of work. The gingerbread house incorporates the doodlebug house complete with stamped brown craft paper, lots of glitter and paper doily placemats cut for the awnings. You can't tell from the photo, but inside the window is a gingerbread girl, presents and a tree with rhinestone bits on it. These peices will look great with my gingerbread Christmas tree when I decorate for the season.
