Happy Hump Day Everyone!! I hope you are all having a good week. I know I am....just very busy. Next week we leave for vacation and there is so many dt cards and things at home that need be done before I leave. LOL! I just may need a vacation from the vacation when I get back.

Anywho...on to today's card. Since Whimsy is the sponsor over at Truly Scrumptious this week, Sharon asked if any of the Whimsy team would be willing to make a card as their guests this week. I just had to say yes and here is my take on the sketch.




Beth, member of the Truly Scrumptious, has also chosen the optional extra challenge of using checks or gingham on your card.


My card uses the Happy Little Gnome from Meljens Designs Digital stamp collection at Whimsy Stamps and the Tickets sentiments from the Whimsy Sentiment collection designed by Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Design. Doesn't he just make you smile?

Challenges:

Delightful Sketches- texture
Creative Inspirations- stitching-faux or real
The Pink Elephant #69 - bright colors
Meljen's Designs #10 - dry embossing
Stamp Somethings: Something Digi-Digi image.
Crazy challenge - Distress it
Corrosive - Diecuts
ResQ - Close It Up, use Stitching or Buttons etc
Alys - Stiching (real or faux)
Oh Alice! - 'Muchness' (stitching!)
Drunken Stampers - Birthday theme

Pink Elepannt: Bright Colors


Thanks for stopping by. I hope this happy little gnome made you smile. See you at your blogs!
Thanks for all your comments!

hugs,
Chris
