I had the loveliest day with my FDAA painting friends at our end of year meeting! Our activity today was making a gingerbread house from a kit. I found myself wandering the supermarket aisles last night, seeking lollies that would give me a Pintrest worthy gingerbread house. After all ... there was a prize up for grabs!

So, I decided on a pink & white theme, packed my piping kit (that hasn't seen the light of day for over 5 years!), and tackled my kit with gusto! At first I wondered why anyone would do this, but about 1 hour in, I was really enjoying it! I will definately make one again, and I've already started planning days for my girls to invite friends over to make gingerbread houses as well :D

I was very humbled, and excited to receive first prize for my house. Wow!

For some reason I can't upload a photo to Blogger today, so you can see it by clicking here!

Facebook is the new word of mouth!

So, I've been spending a LOT of time on Facebook lately. No ... I am not playing Farmville, Mafia Wars or some other kind of 'ville' game. I am connecting with some other lovely mums, aunts and grandmothers who fancy owning a dolly or two, constructed by me. It's like going to the markets without having to pack up all my gear, unpack, set up, stand around, pack up, cart home and unpack again! Loving it!

Normally I would show some lovely dolly photos, but blogger isn't playing nice tonight. Instead you can go check out the action here ... Facebook/Hello Dollies.

This week's theme is CHECKS ... use checks in some form on your card! The other bonus is to use a Kenny K stamp and be in the winning for a $15 gift certificate from Michelle's scrapbooking store. There are also 5 digital Kenny K stamps up for grabs!

Now, if you're feeling a bit poor (like my good self), why not rifle through your scraps and use up some of those leftovers before cutting into a new piece or card or paper!

Here are my ingredients:
Kenny K stamp - Club Kid
Greeting stamp - Darkroom door 'All Occassions'
Background motif stamp - Kaisercraft
Inks - Stampin' Up
Pattern Paper - K & Co
Ribbon - Autumn Leaves
Gem - Kaisercraft
Copic markers - Hair E13, E15, E17, E19, Face E50, E51, E53, YR02, Belt C9, 100, Eyes YG63, YG67, B0000, B00, Pants YG63, G94, G99, Shirt/shoes Y21, Y23, Y26, E13, Tie/jacket/shoes YR00, YR02, YR04, YR07, clear spica, sand spica

So, get on over to the Kenny K shop, nab yourself this month's freebie and pick up a fave or two while you're there. Then get on over to the Kenny K's Krafty Girlz blog and enjoy the rest of the amazing cards the DT has for you!

Also, this is my final post as a Kenny K Krafty Girl. Sadly I have had to step down from the DT as I have a whole bunch of 'stuff' going on at home that take up a lot of my time. Doesn't leave me much time for colouring I'm afraid :( I have really enjoyed being KKKG, and a great big thanks goes out to all the girls on the DT who have made me feel so welcome :)

I'm also entering this card in the Mad 4 Markers challenge - brown hair.
