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.
..you 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 images...so 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.
