Crafty boots fairy tale challenge... Run, run as fast as you can!

The Crafty Boots challenge this time is set by Dionne and is fairy tales or nursery rhymes. It's caused me a few troubles.. I started off with James and the giant peach ideas, then moved onto Hansel and Gretal (sort of a dark forest style tag) and eventually mooches through my sizzix dies and found this cute little gingerbread man and a one off stamp of Mother Goose's house.

Run, run as fast as you can you can't catch me.. I'm a gingerbread man!

I used..
Tim Holtz pine tree
Sizzix gingerbread man #3
Cuttlebug You're not the Boss of me alphabet
Distress stain Picket fence

  1. It is a long time since I have heard this story, but it was one that frightened me as a child (they were much simpler times), your tag tells the tale so well and instantly bought it all back to me.

    I love your happy, almost insanely happy, gingerbread man.

  2. Love it! Great tale and super tag! Take care Zo xx

  3. Hahahaha! that gingerbread man looks just like the one on the front of my Ladybird version I had as a child! Brilliant idea and I love the tag lots! You're a clever lady!

  4. This is wonderful. Particualarly love the background and lettering. Am always a sucker for a gingerbread man - but not to eat :)

  5. Love this gorgeous tag and I used to love this story too .
