Coffee, Tea, Cocoa and 2011

Wow! It's 2011! Happy New Year to all the Gingersnappers out there!

During the often frigid month of January, we'll be asking you to cozy up with your favorite hot beverage and play along with us! To go along with our theme of warm and toasty drinks, we will be focusing on some hot and heated techniques.

Checking in with our Gingersnappers

We asked what you wanted and we took action!

For 2011, the Yahoo Group Special Content will include Art Exchanges, Recipe Challenges, Sketch Challenges, and a Technique of the Month only available to our Yahoo Gingersnapper community.

If you want to get in on this month's special content for the GC Yahoo Group or sign-up for any of our Art Exchanges, why not become a Gingersnapper yourself and join our group? The membership process is easy and the fellowship is phenomenal!

We hope you will get cozy with us and we sit down and enjoy a nice hot drink while you stamp!
