A Very Gnomey Christmas!

I'm back!  I hope you all had a super fabulous Thanksgiving!  The Hubbums made the EPIC turkey he had planned and it turned out AMAZING!!!  We normally eat vegetarian, so he figured if we were going to splurge he would go all out.  It was totally worth it!  Awesome turkey!  It was a really fun day with family and then we went back out with the fam on Friday to hunt down my parents' Christmas tree.  It's an annual tradition and TONS of fun!  I posted photos of that adventure on Facebook.  Love when I can get some good ones with people enjoying themselves!

And now it's time to talk Christmas Cards!!!!!  YAY!!!!  This week Gourmet Rubber Stamps has an awesome color challenge for you!  The DT has created some fun cards to get you inspired!  Here is the color challenge.


I LOVE these colors and decided to try to play with them in a new way since I tend to use these tones a lot on my own. So...this is what I came up with!

Gnome Christmas

I used the adorable Gnome stamp and the Merry Christmas stamp for this card. I paper pieced the gnome with some fun papers and a bit of cork for some added texture and, well, FUN!!! YAY for fun things! I added flock to the beard. Very cute!
