Gingerbread Lane

Just wanted to say hello to my new followers and also to let everyone know I am still alive, this Christmas malarky is seriously eating into my commenting time lol.

This stamp set from Papertrey Ink is perfect for all lovers of anything gingerbread. I have long since been addicted to gingerbread men and have quite a collection, the non edible ones of course the edible ones were lucky to make it into the house lol.

I bought some gorgeous scented candles in Bath and Body works in Florida and wanted a way to box them as gifts for my friends when I realised that the gingerbread house would be perfect. I measured and scored both boxes from one sheet of card and used left over scraps from the last lot of cards for the houses, sometimes not putting everything away has its advantages lol.
