Holiday Gnome

Good Morning!

Happy Monday! Can you believe only 1 more day and it's December!? I have yet to do any holiday shopping either, yikes! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend if you celebrated Thanksgiving. It was another weekend that flew on by. Before we know it, Christmas will be here!

And speaking of Christmas, I have created another holiday card to share with you today. I still have quite a few I need to make for this year's Christmas list, so you'll be seeing more holiday themed cards in the days and weeks to come. How are your holiday cards coming along? I find them to be some of the most fun to create.

This is a Whiff of Joy gnome which has been colored with Copics and then framed with Oval Nesties. I have used some Bo Bunny papers and then added faux stitching with a white gel pen to all the red card stock layers. The final touches were some polka dotted organdy ribbon, a tag with a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps Winter Letter Seals set, more ribbon, and flowers.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Scrappy Frogs - Christmas
Ellephantastic  - red and green
One Stop Craft - Christmas cuties
Our Creative Corner - make a tag
Totally Gorjuss - trees
Crafty Catz - Christmas
Daring Cardmakers - spots and stripes
Christmas Stampin' - CHRISTMAS and anything goes

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you have a great afternoon!
