Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas friends; I hope your day is blessed!

I had a customer order a large quantity of Christmas cards so I went to town playing with men - Gingerbread Men that is! :D

I used Papertreyink's Holiday Button Bits stamp set; isn't this little guy the cutest? Since I was mass producing cards, I needed to keep them simple - something I always struggle with!

I decided to make these post card style (no fold, just front and back) with plenty of room to write on the back. There are 3 different colored gingerbread men, each is highlighted with a white gel pen and pure poppy buttons. Each is layered onto a pure poppy circle and a chocolate scalloped circle. I added liquid pearls to each chocolate scallop.

I hope your day is great; I have so many things to share. I hope I can find some extra time to share all my creations with you over the holiday break. Hugs, ~M.
