Happy Holidays - GingerBread House :)

Good Morning Everyone,

It's Monday and that means its time for another card for my holiday pile!  I love being part of the Christmas Stampin All Year Long group - it totally is keeping me motivated to keep making my Holiday cards - before the holidays -- I love adding another holiday card to my card box :) . This week, we had a sketch challenge - that I sorta kinda did - (I couldn't make the diamond part work - so I did a diamond through putting little pink Stickles dots in a diamond shape around the ginger bread house). 

Card Details:

Paper: Christmas Key Ingredients (Taylored Expressions) this link has other TE expressions kit :)

Ink: Stazon Green
Stamps: Home Sweet Home stamp set from: Taylored Expressions
Accessories: rhinestones, liquid pearls, Waterfall and Eucalyptus Stickles, button brads from Making Memories, Sakura Glaze :)

I loved making this card and totally enjoyed my little stamp therapy time in creating it :) Please join us in making your holiday cards with us - you can see the rest of the cards from the challenge divas here and join in and link up to the same blog with your holiday yumminess!!!

Thanks so much for coming over for a visit and hope you are all doing well!!
Happy Monday!

Ciao for now, 
Sankari :)

Nope, cannot join in as that would make me ahead of the game and, quite frankly, would send the Earth on a dangerous orbit! ;)

This is an adorable card! My fav part is the buttons! That peppermint candy in the center of the house is perfect! What a fun card!
