There's No Place Like Gnome

 Good morning and a very happy Friday. Did you get the snow yesterday? we got bucket loads! It was fun to walk in then but now it's very icy so it's an indoor day. The though of slipping on the ice and having to go to hospital fills me with dread - a sign of old age I guess (plus the fact that I can trip over my own shadow)

Today is the start of a fun new challenge over at the Lost Coast Portal To Creativity, and this time it's all about the Gnomes!

I started by watercoloring a background for my gnome village. This tag is huge so it's going to take some filling!

These are the stamps that I've chosen, 3 Gnomes and Stone House. both by Lost Coast Designs.

These were stamped and clear embossed onto scraps of Gelli plate backgrounds. You should never throw anything away, it may become a gnome house! Originally I stamped them onto watercolour card and coloured them in, then fussy cut them out, then decided I didn't like them! They are literally still stuck to my desk as I foam-padded them and everything before I admitted that I just didn't like 'em. I prefer the Gelli plate version much more.

And this is where my gnome lives, in the middle of his street! You'll be singing that all day now - you're welcome!

So please join in with our fun challenge, remember there's Lost Coast dollars up for grabs.

Thanks so much for looking, take care, and have a great weekend x

  8. I know I've already seen these but just wanted to thank you for the lovely comment today. I had to smile at your excuse for not decorating the back of the card but you see I just get carried away Lol! Well that's my excuse Lol! Sending hugs, Angela xXx

  9. I think I must be getting past it, I thought I commented on this fabulous gnome card but it must have been on FB.... anyway, I love it and the way you layered the houses up - I think the gnomes would make great Christmas cards too. And yes, I am now humming that song.... Keep safe and well. Hugs, Anne xx

  10. Oh these are so cute Sue, love the Gnomes there's a lot of them about atm. There houses are so sweet, glad to see they didn't get snowed under could you imagine!! There's a risk of more on it's way this weekend but, i'm not so sure.
    Hugs Tracey xx
