Gingerbread, A Happy Tradition

Hi Crafty Friends,

We have something exciting to announce!! Starting today, The Foiled Fox and Heather Telford (one of our very favorite guests!) are hosting a Holiday Traditions giveaway event. For the next couple of weeks, we will be sharing card designs that represent a few holiday traditions we enjoy in our homes. We are hoping you will join in on the fun and share a few of your holiday traditions by commenting on our blogs and Instagram (links are provided at the bottom of this post). Each time you comment, you will have another chance to win.

To kick off this merriment, Heather is sharing their family tradition of making gingerbread. When Heather told me her tradition, I was sure I would see gingerbread men on her card design. I was so surprised and awestruck by her ingenuity and cleverness! This year, she is not only making tasty gingerbread cookies to delight her family but she has made a duo of incredible card designs to share with us. Don’t they look good enough to eat?

A Watercolored Rose with Thinking of You Note

Hi Crafty Friends,

I love roses and I think this “Painted Rose” by Concord & 9th is one of the prettiest ones available. It is very versatile too. You can keep it a single rose or you can accompany it with other flowers for a bouquet.

For this card design, I decided to add a second flower called Hydrangea from Penny Black and the “Just A Note” die, also from Penny Black was used for the sentiment.
