You Gnome Me.... Version 4!


Hi again.......

Now for a card to make you smile!!  Those sneaky little gnomes from MFT got to me again - and begged to be made into a lovely summery card - perfect for this wonderful sunny weather - yes?  Hope you're all enjoying it - I know it's a little TOO hot at the mo - I have my fan on to keep me cool - but isn't it wonderful to see blue skies!

So... here's my DT card for our new challenge at Handmade Bliss.  It's a sketch challenge this time - the sketch is below.  Of course, this little man fitted perfectly into the circle after I'd done lots of fussy cutting!
