The Little Gingerbread House - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
The weather has certainly turned Autumnal here, the central heating has been switched on and it won't be long until Christmas. Blog counters are telling me it's only 78 sleeps until the big day, should I start to panic lol.
Last year Christmas was pretty awful for us with hubs in hospital having just suffered a stroke, & the poor kids had to suffer me trying to cook the most disgusting Christmas lunch ever before dashing back to the hospital. I do not cook, and should not cook, EVER, those are the perks of marrying a chef lol. Lunch was bad, really bad, even the dogs weren't interested in all the leftovers and there was a lot leftover lol.
This year I am really hoping that it's a happy & relaxing day, pretty much everything that last year wasn't, so I am getting cracking on the Christmas cards and they are one of my all time favourite cards to make.

 It's Wednesday which means ..........
& this week our challenge is
 Back in the days when copics were these nice looking but scary markers to use I water coloured with distress inks all the time but now the roles have totally reversed.
Instead of reaching for my distress inks or watercolour pencils I thought I would be totally insane and challenge myself to watercolour with Gelato's!
I've been busy making some new pins & this time they are especially for Christmas. Some of the pins have little angel wings on and others have little Christmas charms of the end. I will be popping some in my Etsy shop soon.

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
