Gingersnaps Gets Into Gear......

Hi,  still following the Steampunk theme at Gingersnaps we are getting our Cogs and Watches  into Gear......at this point I have to say I don't possess any of these metal items, so did the best with what I've got.

First is the Thinking Man..........thats odd you say.........lol,   but when you ask someone a question and parts of their face twitch a bit while they are thinking of an answer;  we always used to say I can see the wheels turning..............Ok so its a bit deep, but I am that kind of woman, weird...............

TeePee Cards are all over Blogland at the moment and this is mine using  the Gingersnaps theme.

Products Used:
Stamps by BLine
Creative Expressions Embossing Folder
Inks: Big and Juicy, Stazon and Distress Inks
Clear Embossing Powder

Looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations and don't forget to pop over to Gingersnaps and see what the rest of the DT created for your inspiration.

Have a great day and will be over to visit you all later on as have loads of cooking and baking to do today.  Take care and thank you for popping in, hugs Annette x
