Gingerbread House.

I have recently entered the ART 'n' SOUL challenge to make just one matchbox up for your partner. Having just made 25 of the little blighters I decided to do things differently.
First its a lot bigger! More the size of the larger long match boxes. Second I have made it entirely from material. I had this gingerbread house fat qtr so cut out the house and appliqued
to the top of the box.

Inside I put some gingerbread men to hang on the tree ,gift tags and of course the recipe for making gingerbread men.

Mrs. A., you are really incredible - everything you make is always a different slice of superb talent. I love how you are able to easily create at the drop of a hat! This is stunning work - absolutely fantastic! I've never seen one made of fabric - superb! Guess what came in the mail for me today? Yes, a sweet little Princess - her name is...Terri Anne! Woot! Woot! You know, I thought for sure it was going to someone name I didn't set my heart on her. But golly I'm so glad to be the recipient - she is amazingly perfect! I LOVE her! Thank you so very much - my, you've made my year! I'm posting her for tomorrow. She'll be in my craft room with me - making every day a crafting delight! :-)
