Who doesn't love a Gingerbread man?

Good evening and how are you this Tuesday?
Another busy day at work today, phew, glad that's over!
Only one more day for me to work as I am off Christmas Eve.
I'll let you into a secret, I think I quite like it at work when it is crazy busy, I must be mad.

Tonight I really need to get myself into gear and get some more wrapping done and dusted.
Tea first and then time to get busy.

One of my pals at work had asked me could I make this card as a friend was having trouble getting something suitable for a wee boy to give to his parents.  Apparently in the shops you can get for the female equivalent but not the male.  In the present climate I think this is unfair to have for one gender and not the other so I gladly agreed to make the card.

What better die than a Christmas Gingerbread man?
The die is by Sizzix and I have used kraft card, scraps of red gingham and card.  The eyes are brads and then I've used white pen and Distress ink Vintage photo to finish before matte and layering on coordinated cardstock.  Inside reads "Looking forwards to a "sweet" Christmas with you both".

I do love to get feedback and apparently both Daddies loved it.  Bargain.

That's all from me today, I better go and see how tea is getting on.  
Enjoy the rest of your evening.

What a lovely card, this sweet gingerbread man die is a great way to fulfil the brief for this card and you have created a lovely CAS design.
I hope tomorrow goes as quickly for you at work as it did today and then you can enjoy the holiday period.
