Christmas Time

Yep, believe it or not it is time to decorate the house.  Just in time for me to deck out my mantle, Mo Manning gave me this free, YES I SAID FREE, Gingerbread Man.  You can have it for free until Friday, November 30, by clicking here.  Mos is also running a contest on her Facebook page until then.  If you make a project using this cute little guy and post on her Facebook page you will be entered into a drawing for a gift certificate to her store.  If you are interested, hop over real quick and get busy making something delightful.

I took the gingerbread man and printed him in two different sizes on SU Crumbcake cardstock.  I inked the edges with TH Distress Ink - Brushed Corduroy and CTMH White Daisy ink.  I used a white gel pen to draw zigzag lines around the edges. Buttons for buttons and black pearls for eyes finished decorating him. The mouths were made with White Opal Liquid Pearls. I threaded Hemp cord through holes in the hands and linked them together.  Bits of colorful ribbon tied to the hemp finished off my garland.

What amazes me the most about these little men is the dimension Mo created when drawing a flat gingerbread man.  She drew them with edges which makes it stand out from clear across the room.  I am not sure how much you can see from these pictures, but they are really special.  Mo sure knows how to draw!

Hope you enjoy this post and get in on the special deal before it ends.  Let me know if you enter, I would like to check out your creation too.  Happy Crafting!
