Have A Sweet Christmas..CAS(E) this Sketch #101, CASology #123~Eat, TPE #278~Anything Goes

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my wonderful friends in the US!

Each and every one of you - through encouraging, warm comments you leave on my blog, or personal notes that bring me immense joy -  has enriched my life.  I am abundantly blessed and immensely grateful to be part of such a welcoming community.

I wish you a day filled in the companionship of family and friends, sharing a wonderful meal and rejoicing in this day of giving thanks to all those who touch your lives.

Because you have plenty to do today (turkey dinner...I'm just a wee bit envious! Oh, who am I kidding: I'm totally envious!), I'll skedaddle out of the road, and send you off for a quick flip through my cards.   My theme this time: treats!  Yayyy for gingerbread houses and candy canes!

My set of cards is heading off to CAS(E) this Sketch #101






Little gingerbread scenes (Clearly Besotted), tucked into circular windows; two with sponged skies, two left white...





Once again: Happy Thanksgiving!  Hugs to all!!

Thank you so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!

Total sweetness! Would not want to have to choose between the sponged sky and the white sky! Such a GREAT idea to create a frame with the stitched circle die! It reminds me of the the snow globes from days gone by (I loved those things!).

Oh these are making me feel hungry yummy, I have not had a bit of ginger bread since 20 years ago, I have been naughty this week though, hubby brought me a wheat free bun and omg the first one in 20 years it was so so nice lol hugs Pops x

Kim Heggins said...

Too darn cute...I love them all. Your sweet gingerbread houses are amazing and I bet if you turned these into cookies they would be so so yummy. I love them!

Julia Altermann said...

The second one must be my favorite – my white on white fascination strikes again. Love how you can make the same stamps and the same design look so different, though, by changing up some details. Just shows what a brilliant crafter you are, C!
