Christmas sketch adventure

I have been struggling to keep up with doing Christmas cards ahead this year, I was starting to worry that I'd be spending the first week of December stamping out mass-produced (but still handmade) duplicates.  I finally ordered some new toys supplies to see if that would inspire me, and it did!  Combined with Stef's fabulous Jingle Belles sketch, this card nearly made itself:
stamp sets - More Merry Messages, Scentsational Season; ink - Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake; card stock - Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade; designer series paper - Festival of Prints; Big Shot with Holiday Collection framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals
Isn't that little gingerbread boy just the cutest little thing?  I really wanted to make him smell as good as he looks, but I ordered Peppermint Sticks Stampin' Emboss® powder instead of Sugar & Spice - what was I thinking?  Maybe I should emboss the envelope, wouldn't that be fun?

OK, now that I'm inspired, I should get back to stampin'!  Oh, but maybe I could find something to eat first, since it's after noon and I forgot to eat breakfast...

Love the perfect alignment of your patterned background pieces ... and that cute little gingerbread man of course ... so very glad to see you at jingle belles.

mmm, that gingerbread boy looks good enough to eat! I smelled the sugar & spice embossing powder at convention - it would be yummy on the gingerbread. Love your card - I'm inspired to get my new goodies and start stamping!
