For you...

Happy Friday!!! Yay, the weekend has just about finally arrived!!! Lots of excitement happened this week and i'm thrilled to have been part of some... =D the whirlwind begins today as i rush to get a few more things on my list and finish up some goodies... oh and i cannot forget the wrapping i still have to do... but in all the craziness that's been happening,i snuck in some craft time to play a few challenges....
i kept this really simply sweet... using Chef Ian (who is perfect for baking up some sweetness) from the TGF line, i colored him up in red and brown... i'm not sure why, but when i think of Christmas baking, i think of this color combo... i was so happy to have found some 3D stickers and this cake sticker fit the platter perfectly... used some extra peppermint candy buttons that i found and glued these cute little gingerbread men buttons on top... the sweet Christmas wishes sentiment was a great addition to this sweet card... at first i thought this really came out plain, but then it grew on me and now i really like it... truly brings out the image and menaing to the card...

so yes, i'll be entering this sweetness to these challenges:

1. LPSC - Honey, you baked! - Baking theme

2. MMSC #32 - sketch with a baking theme

yummy yum yums!!! have a no calorie SWEET day!!! and thank you for stopping by to visit... I enjoy reading all your "Sweet" comments... really keeps a smile on my face... =D
