ATC Christmas Ornaments and Gingerbread houses

This year, several of my friends got a sweet little surprise with their Christmas cards...THESE!
Instead of using a playing card to create these ATCs(Artist Trading Cards), I used a Mike & Ike box {I love those things}. I did use a playing card to trace its shape on the cardboard and cut it out. This was perfect because it is white on one side so I can put a nice holiday greeting on there.

I covered the other side with old wrapping paper from Christmas presents past and stamps from last year's cards! In the middle is a rolled paper rose and stamped across the top reads: The Magic Of Christmas.

With a hole punched in the top, these can be laced up with a pretty ribbon and displayed on the tree for many years to come!

I went to see the gingerbread display at the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY and here are some of the delights to be seen..

Then, I came across this real life gingerbread house! How Gorgeous!! Someday, I will have a beautiful house like that..
