Baking My Life Away!!

Why is it we always seem to bake so much around the holidays than we do the rest of the year?  I don't really have an answer for that.  It seems to start at Thanksgiving with pies and continue through Christmas.  My daughter and I made M and M cookies and peanut butter chocolate chip cookies the other day.  Then I baked these yummy little tarts that my mom made when I was little.  I still have more to do.  So it is nice to take a break and make cards for awhile. 

Cookies at Christmas always reminds me of gingerbread people.  I guess it is because we build our gingerbread houses and always have people on the outside.  So when I came across this stamp the other day, I really wanted to use it. 

This little girl is just so happy she is tumbling all over the paper.  I started this card with a Garden Green base.  I then took a piece of Whisper White I trimmed the edges using a pair of decorative scissors.  I stamped the gingerbread image right-side up and upside down to make her seem to tumble across the paper.  

Here is a closer look at my girl.  Sorry she seems a little blurry.  Anyway, I colored her using colored pencils.  If you look at the bow on her head and the bow and buttons on the body, you will see that I alternated using green and red.  Her frosting on her arms and legs were colored in using glitter glue.  After all she needed some dazzle.  
Well I know this is a short post but I do have lots of holiday things to do.  Hopefully I will be done baking soon.  Thank you for stopping by today.  Please come back tomorrow.  See you then.
