House Mouse Challenge #85, Gingerbread Man, & Update on *Charm* BLOG CANDY Prize

Hello & welcome back wonderful friends, on-lookers and followers !!!! Hope your Christmas was beautiful and your New Years Resolutions are in place as another year is over and a new one about to begin!

My dear and talented Team Mate Christine hosted the last challenge at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and chose to have us to create an *APERTURE* card.  For more details on Aperture and super lovely DT samples with this FUN Challenge go HERE:

You may want to play along with us this week because I'm sponsoring this Challenge and have this new (House-Mouse stamp by Stampabilities, called "Mouse E. Claus" HMJR1079), to give away to one lucky player who enters Aperture Challenge #85 found here.
To see a card I created using this adorable stamp, click HERE.

AND below is my *APERTURE* challenge take. I actually created the rectangular hole for my frame with Spellbinders. I used dimensional foam tape and popped the frame & image sits on a panel just beneath the popped frame.

Stamp: Stampa Rosa, HMD, "Frosting Gingerboy", #C51, from 1997
Ink: Memento Black Tuxedo, Copics, Gel Metallic Markers
Paper: Cream CS, Brown CS

Accessories: Rectangle Spellbinders, Martha Stewart Punches, Glitters & Ribbons; Rhinestones & Gold Cording

So, I hosted the last "Charming Christmas Tree"challenge #86 at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge in which I offered a baggie full of CHARMS to one lucky person who played along with leaving comments along the way on both Blogs, (Here AND on our HM&F MC Blog).  Well, it turns out that a randomly chosen winner is NOT going to happen because the rules werent followed exactly.  LOL!!!!!!!

I really want to re-offer this wonderful Charm Blog Candy - ( a Baggie Full of approximately 100 fun Charms).  This candy will go to one lucky person that comments BOTH here AND on the HM&F MC New Year's BLOG-HOP Challenge #86 which is coming up this Monday, January 3rd.
Sounds easy, right??? So mark your calendars to come back & HOP along with us!!!!

Thanks for stopping by. Dont forget to play along this week creating APERTURES for your chance to win that adorable House Mouse Stamp (pictured above) that Im giving away. :)
And return on Monday for the HM& F BLOG-HOP where you will have another chance to win my CHARMS Blog Candy! :)
