52Christmas Card Throwdown: Gingerbread

I actually put a note in my calendar to start Christmas cards a month ago - but I didn't do it.  Then I saw the Gingerbread challenge at 52Christmas Card Throwdown and remembered that I have a really fun die set in my stash to cut large gingerbread men and a second set to dress them up - male and female!!  So I just made my first Christmas card of the year!!

There are a lot of pieces in the dress up die set.  I relied on this post from Melody from last Christmas season to give me ideas - just scroll down to see an entire garland of gingerbread men!!  There are so many options! I kept mine super simple - I thought the card looked so fresh with the bit of blue that I didn't want him to be too decorated.  But I have to admit that I put the die set back in my to-use stash because I want to use him (and her!) again with a few more decorations!

Here's the challenge!  It closes today so I just squeaked it in.  I'm hoping that I stay inspired to focus on Christmas.  This one was fun so I may just have to keep them coming!
