Wow, have you seen the candy being given away by Jenn at Just4funcrafts? Looks like some fun stuff to play with. Her cards are darling too....go check it out.

I thought I would share this little ornament with you. The backing is felt and the front of the GBkids is brown paper sack. The type groceries come in(heavier than lunch sacks). I bought these years ago at a boutique and every year they make me smile to unpack them. The buttons are real buttons just glued on. The rick rack is painted on along with the faces but I am sure they could be stamped. The ribbon on the neck is torn fabric and the bag was stitched to the felt & stuffed with something like crumpled newspaper (just a tiny amount). Pinking shears were used to cut the outline of the felt. Jute has been sewn in the top for the loop to hang them by.

I made this sign using my cricut. The frame was picked up at JoAnn's with a 40% coupon but I am sure there are some good deals out there on frames right now. The frame measures 9x31. I glued ribbon down for the borders and tied the same ribbon on some of the letters. The little gingerbread boys are buttons and I added little hearts cut from paper from a paper stack. All letters are matted on SU! Creamy Carmel CS.

I thought I would also share a couple pictures of my addiction. LOL
I will have 3 of my grandsons until Sunday so not sure how much I will play but I will try to get some time in I am sure. Our plan is to make some gingerbread houses. I will post them if it happens. Have a great Thursday!
