Joy and whoopee pies!

Hey everyone!  It's Friday so that means I have a few days to kick back!  No Black Friday shopper here.  I feel very fortunate to say that there was nothing I needed to be up at 3:00 AM and waiting in line for this morning.  My daughter put 3 items on her list for her Secret Santa we do every year with my family: coat, piano music, candy.  Interesting huh?  I knew she wanted piano music because we have been searching the net looking for sheet music to various Christmas songs.  The candy I am not so sure about.  She seems to think I limit her intake of this too much.  We just went to Trader Joes' and I  bought her  peppermint whoopee pies .  Okay, maybe they were for both of us.  I would eat one of these over candy any day!
Pretend there is a picture here of the whoopee pies.  I hope to get one before they are gone!  Instead I share a yummy gingerbread card I made.

I made this today with the holidays on my mind.  I really like to bake cookies, breads, and muffins at Christmas time.  I am gearing myself up for this with a card using a gingerbread stamp.  What a delightful smell gingerbread omits while baking!  My DD loves to decorate the people when they come out.  We usually make a gingerbread house as well.  Strangely she does not care for the candy we use to construct a candy wonderland though.  I was just thinking, we have never used Nerds though.  I guess we need try that.  :-)
My card for today was created with no holiday paper.  I love when I can muster the mojo to do this.  It seems I sometimes get stuck and think I can only use Christmas paper when. making a Christmas card.  So not true. 
I need to get some things taken care of quickly and just realized the time.  Eeek!  More later!

This is so sweet, adorable gingerbread man!
I think your daughter is adorable, so cute for her to ask for music!


Your gingerbread man is a cutie :). I love this card; soft, sweet, elegant and perfect for the Holidays. Your daughter asked for sheet music; maybe an idea to ask aruond in your neighbourhood or school? Maybe someone is having some of it and let you copy it... and she can practice in the upcoming days. ( Just an idea :) !!) It's always lovely to hear children making music.
Enjoy your weekend!


So cvute and so unique! Lovely card!

Greetings, Saskia :)
