This is for today's FREE 4 ALL CHALLENGE # 86 - Cards With Character. Well the character that this was made for is certainly a card. My FIL is such a dear and even though he is a diabetic and watches what he eats he still loves his sweets so I always make him something with Splendar instead of sugar in it. This will be his Christmas card this year. I hope he likes it.
This is also for today's QUEEN FOR THE DAY CHALLENGE # 82 - Joan who is such a sweet heart. I always enjoy seeing her uploads and reading her comments she leaves me. I chose to CASE her GINGERBREAD COOKIES.
I changed the colors, layout and left off a recipe although I love how she did hers.
I used pink icing and hot pink gems for Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE # 344 - Pink, Pink, Pink since I did not get to play yesturday and my layout is from Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 354.
My dp is from years ago and I do not even know how many years or where it came from. I used some ribbon and "V"'d the end for panel 3. I stamped this darling image which is from a just released acrylic set called 'GINGER COOKIES" from MARKS FINEST PAPERS in esspresso ink then colored with copics cut it out and popped it up.
Hope you like it and have a fabulous Friday.

That is the most darling ginger, Neva. I LOVE my sweets to and thankfully can still add all the sugar I need to!! How SWEET of you to splenda up a batch of treats for your FIL. I used to do the same for my stepdad when he was diagnosed with diabetes, too. Your FIL will love your heart in this.
