TPS Challenge #268

Hi everyone,

I'm sad to say this will be my last post as a Team Member for The Paper Shelter.
Life has just gotten too busy for me lately and I don't see it slowing down
anytime soon.  To make it worse I am in a crafting slump that has me questioning why....

My first post with this wonderful group was Sept 25, 2013...and what a great ride it has been.
I want to thank my fabulous Team Leader Marie for always being there and
together with Shirley always running this challenge like a fine tuned clock.
Thank you also to the wonderful, super talented Veronica and Pedro
for their generosity and for allowing me to be a part of this lovely group for so long. truly make everyone feel like family.

Okay... now on to this week's theme Food or Drink.   I've used
a coloured image called Gingerbread House, available here in the shop.

Love these coloured simple to use and really pack a design punch.
Gingerbread dies are from Memory Box, Candies are QuicKutz and the Merry
Christmas die is Elizabeth Crafts.

As always there is a wonderful prize for the winner so hope to see you playing along.
