christmas goodies

Hi everyone!
Hope this finds you all well!
I am posting late tonight-we had a really busy weekend-my mum was here from Northern Ireland and we both went to my craft club on saturday. She really loved it and it was lovely she could meet my fellow craft geeks (my partners name for me and us crafters!). Everyone made her feel very welcome and she is now even more into crafting!!
We also went for a lovely walk at Hartsholme country parka nd I have attached a photo of squirrel eating a nut! I got sooo close I could have touched him! Shame he's not a red one but he's still cute.
I am still on the Christmas theme especially as I have a growing pile of other cards and could do with getting rid of some instead of making loads more!

This card is made with a die cut gingerbread amn mounted onto red and green card. I think the die is sizzix
I ahve stamped a sweet from a freebie selection from a magazine from last year onto stripey paper from my stash. I also used the stripey paper as a background behind his heart buttons and to stamp a candy cane.The candy cane stamp is from my My Minds Eye set.
I have scraped the edge of the red to add 'interest' and drew a black border. I stamped in green the sentiment and also the gloves and shoes of the snowman.

I also thought he needed a dickie bow to cheer him up a bit!!
I have added this photo taken in better light-I have also added some Anitas 3D gloss on the sweet wrappers and candy stick.
I would like to enter him in the following challenges:
