Merry Monday Sketches #16 - Gingerbread House

Happy Weekend Everyone,
I guess you have noticed that I have not blogged much since we returned from our trip, had to spend some time in Perth and day to day life has given me many distractions so my stamping has had to take a back seat.  I hope you will bare with me until I can get back into the swing of things and do a few more challenges. I am working on some projects for a Workshop Presentation next weekend for my dear friend Pat Carr so hopefully next week I will have plenty to show you.
Today's post is for the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge this week.  I used an old stamp from Stampin' Up! made in 1992 a cute Gingerbread House that I have had for a while and not used.  When stamped in black the image is very dark, but I love how the colours have given the image a lift and bought it to life.
