Gingerbread Gift

Well I should be getting to my baking but I got sidetracked by a couple of challenges... at least I have a gift out of the way ;)

Do you remember this post, when I showed you my Gingerbread Themed Gift Basket?  Well the funny thing was, that my friend was the one who ended up getting it (we do a secret present game at out staff party).  It was perfect because she likes to bake, and she hosts a Gingerbread House making party at her house every year.  Perfect gift for her!

Anyhow, Danica gets invited to the party and I always bring a hostess gift.  I decided to give her a bag of Gingerbread Biscotti.  Well what better tag for the gift than more Gingerbread Land collection from Nikki Sivils?!  I also used a Baker Kaylee image from Some Odd Girl, only I replaced the cupcake in her hand with a gingerbread man sticker from the collection.  I cut the tag with my Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  The stamped sentiment is from Gina K.  Finally, it is all tied off with some Cappuccino Twine from The Twinery.  This is for the Fantabulous Cricut challenge -tags and the Some Odd Girl challenge - gift
