Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.  Our challenge hostess for the month, Maryann Einam continues to issue the challenges.

This is our last challenge for 2016, so everyone can enjoy spending time with family and friends over the Christmas Season. But we will be back in January for more challenges.

According to the Days of the Year Web site, the 10th December is Gingerbread Decorating Day and the 12th December is Gingerbread House Day. So for our challenge this week let’s include something gingerbread related on our cards.

For my project today, I decided to make something other than a card for a change. So used my Sizzix House Box die set to create a Gingerbread House. I decorated the house using various dies and a couple of cute Gingerbread Man & Girl stamps.

Here is a close up of some of the sides of my house/box.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
