WMSC#102 and WM June Christmas Card Challenge

I am on vacation and using my Ipad to post this card for WMSC #102 and also the WM June Christmas Card Challenge.
You will have to forgive me for not linking things or doing much other than posting a picture of my card. I didn't realize I couldn't just write up a post using blogger like I always do at home on my computer. I had to download a new blog ap called Blogsy and try to learn it all in a few minutes...make that hours just to get this much done.
I brought a very limited amount of crafting supplies with me on vacation, so this card is not very elaborate. I used Candy Jar Fillers for the cute little gingerbead men and a sentiment from A Cottage Christmas . Not sure if you can see it or not, but the green panel is embossed with a woodgrain IP.
The Christmas card challenge this month was to use stitching on our cards, and my stitching without a sewing maching proves that I should NEVER try to stitch without it again. I used some handstitching with embroidery floss onto the gingham panel and a few little cross stitches onto the gingerbread men.
Thanks for taking a look at my first attempt at vacation blogging!

This is adorable, Cathy, and I think the stitching looks fabulous! Those little gingerbread boys are so cute! I have not had good luck with blogging & posting away from home! The last time I couldn't get connected in our hotel room and had to take my computer to the lobby where everyone in our group keep coming by & talking! I'm going to try it again when we post this month's 12 Kits--hopefully with better luck! Hope you are having a fun vacation!
