Gnomes Abound!

Hi friends! I hope you are having a good weekend! Yesterday, we had a relaxed day. We ran some errands and had lunch then spent the rest of the day at home just hanging out. It's WINDY out there! I'm hoping the trees all make it intact out of this storm!

I got my order from Wilson's Designs Stamps this week for their new release, Gnomebody Like You. This is one of my favorite sets so far! I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the puns! :D They make me happy!

My first card was made for Jen del Muro's SFYTT for March. The strips of paper were a bit intimidating at first but I think they turned out quite fun. I used Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers for this card. Even though this line is geared toward pets, I think the woodsy color scheme goes perfectly with this stamp set. And a little inking of the edges which I neglect to do sometimes.

Then I decided to give some love the the girl gnome in this set and make a little girlfriends card. This card uses the SCS sketch that was posted last Wednesday. Again, I pulled out some woodsy papers to go with these fun gnomes. This paper is Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg. I really need to pull out older papers more often. I get pretty caught up in the new stuff.

Have a great rest of the weekend, everyone!
