Gingerbread Man Card

Hello all my dear crafty friends,
Sorry that I have been a bit M.I.A. lately. I cannot express into words just how much I have truly missed you all!! I just hate it when I cannot post new projects and visit my favorite blogs on a regular basis!!  Phooey :0(~  It's just been so hard for me to do much crafting on a regular basis lately.  Between long work days, the holidays and just everyday life my crafting has had to take a temporary backseat. While I have done some crafting here & there, it has not been enough!!  Sigh :0(  Anyway, I just want to take a moment to say "THANK YOU" to all of you who have decided to stick around with me and I promise to get back into the swing of things soon :0) So with that in mind I wanted to share with all of you what was supposed to be my Christmas Card this year.  Notice how I said "supposed" to.  I was unable to finish them all in time and get them mailed out this year.  But hey, atleast I am ahead for next year ;0)  Here are all the details of my card:
