Gingerbread man

Hello crafty friends I hope your week
is starting off well. I can't believe we're heading towards the end of November already! 

I made another christmas card to add to my small collection he he....hey I'm getting there right?  I love cardmaking so much but I know all my friends and family will be expecting a handmade christmas card I have so many more to make... How are you all getting on with your christmas cards? 

I would like to enter this into the following challenge:

Okay I said I was getting a bit obsessed with the polkadot embossing folder and here is more proof he he. I hand stitched around the edges of the card front and added some twine and buttons. I did try getting out my mini sewing machine again but I'm afraid to say we have not yet bonded so much so she tore my card apart.....god I'm rubbish with a sewing machine and I bent the needle again but at least it didn't snap like last time! I think that's one item I won't be getting out for a long time :) 

Anyway I hope your week goes well and thank you so much for stopping by.
