Gnome for the Holidays

Hi all!  Happy Saturday!  We are off today to take my dad and another friend to the local senior center for a free Veteran's Day breakfast!  We had to tell my dad that we were just "taking him out for breakfast" because he would probably balk if he knew he was going to a senior center!!!!  At any rate, amidst all the rain yesterday I had time to make a quick little card for two challenges:  CAS(E) This Sketch and the "Home Sweet Home" Time Out Challenge:


I often see gnome stamps on other people's cards but never saw any that really appealed to me until recently, so I took the plunge and bought a set!  So here is my "gnome for the holidays" creation:

Isn't he a cutie?  I colored him with Blends and fussy-cut him out and mounted him on a card that was diecut with stitching around the edge:

He was quick and easy to do, too!  Thanks for popping in today--be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!

A little jump-rope action!!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!
