Gingerbread Terrace

Just a quick post from me today as we are off to Cornwall for a week tomorrow morning, but I wanted to share these gorgeous little gingerbread houses with you before I went. I saw the die from Tonic and fell in love with it when it was on C and C, but ordered it from Crafty Devils where it was not available until this week. When it popped through the letterbox on Monday morning I was itching to get it cut out, but as we look after our Grandson at the beginning of the week had to wait until yesterday. I finally got them finished last night. They were a little awkward to put together to start with and the first one remains undecorated but the next four were much easier and made it through to the end. I've left the bottom unstuck so that they can have chocolate put into them for Christmas. I thought they would look great on the tree. I'll be round to catch up with what everyone has been doing after next weekend.



 Below, close up.


Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Sue.
