Pretty pink gingerbread

Happy Saturday bloggy people!  How are things in your neck-o-the-woods?  Things in my neck are lookin to be good and warm today.  Later on we will be going to my BIL's place for a cookout, with smoked pork, smoked corn on the cob, etc.  It's making me drool already!

Anyhow, here is the reason for my visit to blogland today:

An adorable gingerbread girl all dressed in pink!  This digi image is from Bugaboo.  I used the 6x6 MME Merry Little Christmas paper pad, and cardstock from the Botanical paper pack from Recollections in this card construction.  The ribbon was left over from some kinda packaging.  I added some bling in the corners, and that's it!


Winter Wonderland:  Christmas Carols/Songs:  (It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas; the line that goes "with candy canes and silver lanes aglow")
CHNC Extra:  August Anything Goes
CHNC #242:  Something Old (the bling)
52 Christmas Card Throwdown:  August Theme Challenge, for a child
The 12 Months of Christmas Linkup:  Anything goes with optional snow people theme
Crafty Calendar:  BINGO; I went across the top of the board with "pink, pearls/gems, ribbon/lace"
CHNC Patterned Paper:  Cover your project in patterned paper
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
