But Grandma... what odd colors you've chosen!

Welcome stamping friends!  I'd meant to get this second Gingerbread Collection post completed last night, but it just didn't happen.  So I hope you'll enjoy it today!!!

And yes... about the colors.  I was trying to go a little retro.  Anyone remember the avocado appliances and aqua blue dishes?  I see them all the time in the antique stores.  Well... I was trying to go for that feel, but not at all sure I made it!!  LOL!!  Please bear with me and them (the colors).  Maybe they'll grow on all of us!!!

Today I'm sharing the new Gingerbread Collection set from Whimsie Doodles called "Ginger Tea" (available with all other new releases on Wed., May 5).  Isn't it just adorable???  And so quick and fun to color up!  I'm going to send this card to a friend of mine who has been soooo supportive to me during this huge change of life since my grandkids came to live with me.  BTW... the kids are at grandpa's for the whole weekend... and I must admit, I've been really lazy... and LOVIN' being lazy!!!  hahaha!

Today, some of the other Whimsie Doodles DT members are sharing new Whimsie Doodles Collections with you.  Please head over to the Whimsie Doodles blog to see who is sharing today.  All these gals are great and so talented so I know you will NOT be disappointed!!

Others on the DT will be sharing more snippets tomorrow and I'll be back with cards from a new Collection on Tuesday, May 4th.  I hope you come back by to see what I've come up with and share in the fun on the day before the HOP.  Remember to leave a comment on the Whimsie Doodles blog for a chance to win the entire day's 'sneak peek'.  You'll have 24 hours to comment on that day's snippets.  So please, join in the fun.
