Thrice Blessed and I Love Gingerbread Men

Hello.  Welcome.  Mr Weatherman predicted sunshine with clouds.  We got rain!!  Might as well just look out the window myself!  But....... craft time!!!!  Yay!  

It's a technique challenge over at MFP this week.   Thought I'd give it a go.  Oh my, what fun.  This might become a momentary obsession.......

Love it.  I stamped MFP gingerbread man from the Holiday Tag set three times and embossed.  Then I drew my grid and added some faux stitches and some lines.  I also cut a few squares away.  Mounted on a black base card and added a wavy happy birthday banner stamped using the sentiment from MFP's Tigers set.  Have I said I love it?  

Hope you have a happy, happy, happy day.  Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
