Gingerbaby - for Stampfairy

  


                   Run, Run, Run, as fast as you can,
                               you can't catch me,
                          I'm the Gingerbread man..

Hello Everyone.....'yay' it's Friday....and just had to share that little rhyme with you, as it went round and round in my head while I made this weeks card for STAMPFAIRY  it seemed only fair to share..

A new image this week, again, such a cutie from Gerda...


A Gingerbaby 7  and so much fun to colour, really easy...coloured with my pencils and added puff paint for his icing trim...



Close up of image....



And the side view..the papers were a freebie from a magazine "Forever Friends"...the flowers from WOC and glittered up. and the little gold sprouts were from a dried Christmas arrangement, which now looks a bit worse for wear...LOTV sentiment, my favourite Christmas sentimnets from last year..and then a red gingham ribbon to finish off..



Theres the whole sheet of images and your cute little freebie down the bottom...

So theres the new release for this week and now for something different...

A couple of weeks ago I won Susans candy, and it arrived today...



Yummy....Thank you so much Susan, I will get rotten teeth, but I'll have a fabulous play with my new stuff while I'm munching..I'm so lucky, thankyou.

The other thing to share just for fun...is under my clothesline in the winter, I get no sun...at all...the grass is always wet and soggy and slimy....


So I decided to start digging it out and filling it with stones from around the other side.......



Today...half of it done..phew...that was tough going, but I had an early day today, so thought I would put it to good use before the summer comes....so at least I will be ready for next winter..lol..

Thanks for hanging in there, enjoy a fantastic weekend, will see you all later...

Luv CHRISSYxx

I made it over, I finally did...and would you look at all I've missed. Where to begin...Gingerbaby (adorable seated on the focal frame like that and the blush in the cheeks; wonderful.) Your Leaves all over card (Oh glorious nature, that has the coolest look to it. I couldn't stop staring at them and the burlap in the back and how you layered her on the fence! Fantastic work Chrissy.) The 4 seasons card (How amazingly radical to have the same stamp and yet the outcome is so unique and different on each one. Just goes to show you're a master at your skill and know how to truly get more bang for your buck. Love them all) and lastly, Fall time...HOLY WOW... you do like paper piecing. Her dress comes to life and the country vintage feel of the entire card is perfect. The fence REALLY struck a cord for me because I love your photos on the post so much. :)
Phew, ok, caught up for now. Big hugs to you.
Lisa xx
OHHHH, the patio garden with rock filler..super nice. You really are doing so much work on your place. It's so nice!

Shelby said...
