WOYWW and a Warning From Gingie

I am WAY late getting my WOYWW post put up today.  It has been a very busy day!  Better late than never though, right?  Not all that much happening on my desk today.  It is much cleaner than it has been in a long time though.


That is sparkling clean in comparison to how it usually is!  Got some papers out there that I was playing with earlier in the week.  Got some new stamps over there on the left.  You will notice a total lack of anything Christmas on there.  Which brings me to the card I am sharing today.

I have spent two days in and out of the stores and people are just grumpy!  Where is the holiday spirit we all like to sing about?  Scowls all over the place!  I have had just about enough of that kind of Christmas spirit and it sparked a card.



I just got this stamp set the other day and when I saw the frown as one of the faces I had to laugh.  The idea of an angry Gingerbread Man is just funny!  And after my shopping experiences the last couple of days, I figured the sentiment was fitting.  This one just cracks me up!  The Gingerbread Man and "Be Merry" stamps are both from Cutest Gingerbread Man (SP & Company).  The "Or Else" was done using an old TAC alphabet set.  Used a combination of Stickles and Liquid Applique to color the various parts of Gingie.  The patterned papers are from 12 Days of Christmas (My Mind's Eye).

If you played along with WOYWW last week, you know I had the I SPY game going and no one got the right answer!  There were 16 pads on my desk last week.  And, yes, the TAC stack was all ink pads.  Since no one got it right, I just picked a random person from everyone who had a guess.  The winner is......

Just send me your address and I will mail out your prize.  That was a lot of fun, so we will play again next week!

Now I am off to finish dinner, clean the kitchen, wrap some presents and eventually sleep, lol!

Be merry! ;)

Hahahaha! Love that card! You're so right, people do turn into grumps when they're trying to get that last present/tree/wrapping paper. We should chillax and just enjoy our families :)
Congrats to 505whimsygirl!
Happy Christmas,

Lol, very funny card, obviously not much Christmas Spirit around your way! Although maybe that's true in Michigan too as we're heading to the mall tonight. Nothing to buy though, just want to look at all the window decorations and see the kiddies lined up to see Father Christmas. Have a wonderful Christmas.

Ha ha! The be merry or else really set me off. At work a lady was saying in a mean tone, "It is our last full day of work for 2011! BE HAPPY!" It was so angry and gruff sounding... all day we've been scowling at each other and saying BE HAPPY! Hubby and I call the attitude of the world now "Christmas cheer" Ugh. Anyway, loved your desk.
