I hope everyone enjoyed the Fourth of July weekend and that you were able to safely celebrate with friends and family. My husband, son and I returned from our Wisconsin family vacation just in time to visit the fireworks stand and light up the evening sky in our own mini fashion. Needless to say, today was all about unpacking, laundry and catching up. I did grab a few moments to myself with a JoAnn run and some craft room solitude, so I decided to create a card for the newest Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
Even with a kit in hand, many of you can attest that building a gingerbread house can be a frustrating and tear evoking task, especially when the kids are eagerly waiting to adorn it with editable windows and sugar-covered roofs. Through the years (and trial and error) I came up with a tear-free solution to building our beautiful brown baked houses, and it all comes down to planning.
