Illustration Friday - Burning

Ginger knew she had to change jobs,
she couldn't keep burning Santa's favorite cookies, anymore...

Ah, such a work ethic! Sweet-- and I love that her name is Ginger! Maybe she could polish the jingle bells instead?

Dag!! I hate when that happens!!! AGHHHHHHHHH!! Oh well, hopefully there is more ingredients to make some more. Great illustration and you've got that facial expression just perfect! Wishing you no burnt cookies, cakes or pies this Holiday Season. We might need to get a timer for the next time he he he he! Hugs to you both.

Cute illustration. Gingerbread seems to be a common thread lately.
Been really busy and trying to catch up. We had snow last night. Afraid Winter is here.

Poor Ginger...since she likes to burn things, maybe she could light candles instead?

Always love your illustrations...so fun.

Never mind Ginger, as they say - it's the thought that counts!

You are such a cutie Ginger that I'm sure Santa won't mind a bit of charcoal!

Debbie said...

Wow, great job, love her expression and totally understand how she feels! I've burned a few cookies in my day too!
