For your chance to win: Comment on the following Design Team members' blogs TODAY before midnight EDT. There will be ONE random winner chosen from the comments on today's Blog Hop blogs. That winner will win Ginger Cookies. We will announce the winner's name on tomorrow's MFP blog post.

I got this bright idea to make my card look kinda like a gingerbread house. I used a MS punch for the roof, colored the ginger cookies with Copic's, the candy canes is twine shaped into the canes and CS is MFP.

Here is a quick gift idea. The ginger cookie image is great as a tag. All I did was stamp the image up next to a folded piece of CS, holding the the CS I cut around the image leaving a small area at the top. I did this in a hurry today so not very fancy but was quick!! By the way my DH said he really is starting like this stamping if it gets me in the kitchen!!! LOL. The inside of the card has To: and From: from this same set. I also made this for SCS ways to use it challenge WT344, Pink.

Be sure to check out the rest of the teams fabulous inspiration using this sweetest set.
