Gingerbread House Gift Bag

Hello friends! Today I have another of the gift bags I crafted on Thursday to share with you.  This bag features a cut Gingerbread house - or at least it would have had I used more traditional papers.  But you know me, I find doing the expected thing a bit of a challenge! Ha.

I used the same file for this bag that I used for yesterday's soldiers.  This bag is the same size as the soldier bag.  I hope one of the girls - with my daughter or my son's fiance - will like this bag.

I am sharing a few more Christmas decorations today.  This antique cabinet stands nearly seven feet tall and is several feet wide.  I placed the tall narrow tree next to the cabinet, which we call our "bar" in an attempt to "festive up" the area.  (This was my office tree when I still worked outside of the home).

We have a collection of different Santa figurines and I placed 14-15 of the Santa figures on the shelves.  There are a couple of more Jim Shore Santa figurines on the entry way table also.

Thanks for popping by today.  I will be back on Monday with a new BBTB2 project.  Enjoy your weekend!!

Yesterday was December 1st and I should have shared the December Stamp of the Month, Special Care, with you.  Fortunately you have all month to add this stamp set to your stamp collection!  The stamp set retails for $17.95, or with a $50 order the cartridge can be added to your cart during check out for only $5.00!
