Gingerbread man

Morning Folks!
Pinch, punch first day of the month ... 
Could someone please tell me why March went by so quickly??  It will soon be Christmas again!! 
If you are trying to get ahead this year with your Christmas makes you might like to join the fun over at Sparkles Christmas Challenge, where the new theme is 


I must admit when I first read this challenge theme, my heart sank a bit because I don't have many stamps that have a candy cane on them. The House Mouse one I did think about using includes a hamster and no matter how hard I try when colouring him, he always ends up looking like a ginger tennis ball - not really the desired effect. After some head scratching and a quick google search, I found this cute gingerbread man complete with candy cane at Whimsie Doodles - perfect for a quick tag:
