Gingerbread Treats

I ordered this set a long time ago....and finally got it mounted and inky!! I collect Wizard of Oz items and thanks to my Mom, collect Gingerbread items too, so I was a shoe-in when I saw this set!! The 'snow' on the house and the feet & hands of the gingerbread boys have Liquid Applique added to them. I also used a clear Sakura stardust pen on the little 'candies' and other parts of the house. Coloring this made me want bake cookies!!
I felt like the lower left corner just needed 'something' so I added a gingerbread boy charm. I cut out a gingerbread boy image, leaving a small paper tab at the top of his head, punched a hole with my Crop-a-dile, added an eyelet and some silver cord. I love my Crop-a-dile---setting eyelets is SO much easier now. I used to ruin so many eyelets and images when I used a hammer & eyelet setter. Now, setting an eyelet takes me about two seconds. Hope you like this creation---and thanks for looking!!

Hi everyone!!! I've finally decided to enter into the adventure of blogging! I hope you'll enjoy the stamping creations that I post here. I'd love to get to know my readers (I know there won't be many in the beginning!), so please tell me about yourselves when you stop by. This will definitely be a learning process for me, (I'm NOT a computer genius!!), so please be patient while I learn.
Welcome! I'm glad you're here!!
