Are You Grumpy

Good Morning!

How's your week going? I can't believe it's almost Friday! Happy about it too, love the weekends. I made some time for crafting yesterday afternoon and so I have a card to share with you today.

This is Gruffy Little Gnome from the Meljen's Designs Collection for Whimsy Stamp. I think this image is just too cute! And even though he's a little grumpy guy, I went for a cheerful color combo.

I used the sketch from this week's The Pink Elephant challenge with these bright and colorful Cosmo Cricket papers.  I colored the image with Copics and used some Stickles and a white gel pen for added highlights. I've embellished with buttons, ribbon, brads, and some twine. It's a fairly clean and simple design which I think lends well to more masculine cards.

This card fits these challenges too:
Cupcake Craft: One for the Boys
Stamp with Fun: Fairytales
Sweet Stampin': doodling
Polka Doodles: Nursery Rhymes
Your Next Stamp: Buttons
Totally Gorjuss: One for the Boys

Thanks for visiting with me today. Hope you have a great day! See you back here tomorrow with my cards for the brand new challenges at Stamp Something and Just Magnolia. Have a great day!

Happy Stamping,
