Spicy New Release @ PCD

Happy Monday everyone!

Well, as happy as a Monday can be I suppose ;) I wanted to share a new release from Platypus Creek Digitals with you this morning, featuring a lovely gingerbread man. You can have a look at the whole new release at the PCD challenge blog. There's several "accessories", such as a sentiment and a baking sheet. There's also a cutting file for those of you with cutting machines, that was released a little earlier last month. This is my make with the digis:

I've been raiding the scrap box again as you can see, though the mountain never seems to change in size very much. I guess that's what happens when you save every last piece of scrap, however small :) For this card, these little snippets actually came in really handy, as they were used for a quilting-inspired panel. Hope you like it! You can find this new release and other lovely digis at the PCD Shop.
