Bug A Boo Stamps Challenge

It's challenge day at Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug, today's challenge is all about food at Christmas time!
I made an easel card with a recipe for "Grandma's Gingerbread Christmas Cookies".  The cute gingerbread girl is from Bug A Boo Stamps  November Digi Stamp Club pack, she's colored with Copic markers E41, E42, E43, C1, C00, R22, R24, R27 cut out & matted with Spellbinders circles and scalloped circles dies.  

The papers are a kraft I found in my stash that's a warmer tone than anything else I have.  The red gingham was a scrap of digital paper that was left over from another card, the red and white are both by Neenah.  The sentiment and "pull" are computer generated and the recipe is not from my Grandma, it's from an online recipe site.
Here's a shot of one of the recipe pages when you pull the tab.  

I used the tab punch from Stampin' Up! and the buttons are by Basic Grey with crochet thread tied in bows.
One last photo of the cookie recipe.  I think the kids and I should try these!  They are out of school on Christmas break for two weeks now. So, if you don't see me posting on my blog quite as much in that time you'll know why.
