Tasty, Tasty!

You remember I was telling you about my non-traditional High Hopes challenge card which turned out a little too traditional ;-) Well here it is.. Isn't this little gingerbread man just the sweetest! The paper does have a stitching design but I thought I would get my sewing machine out to do a little stitching round the edges too! The sentiment is a wooden button which I have coloured with my Marvy pen. I then added some extra sparkle to my brad with stickles.

Here are two gorgeous cards I received through the post today. The first is from Maria. Isn't Melissa just gorgeous! Thank you so much and it was a lovely surprise!
The second unexpected card came from my friend Stephanie. Thank you so much Stephanie! I admired this card on your blog and just loved the design and your cute spider. I love the way you have added the brad to give his body a 3d effect!
Before I go I wanted to tell you about a new blog - Craft Stamper.
