SHOPPING OUR STASH #411 Gnome Sweet Gnome

Hello and welcome!
It's time for our first challenge of the new year at
The SOS Crew is rested from their holiday break and 
raring to go. For this challenge, Gnome Sweet Gnome
we want to see a gnome on your projects. It doesn't necessarily
need to be holiday themed, as there are garden gnomes too!
I used a rather newish gnome die that I got last month.
(Hey, it was last year, and also last decade, so I'm gonna 
say this die is pretty old. That's my story and I'm 
sticking with it. LOL!)

Here's the inside:

My card design is based off of the sketch from Inspire Create #59, 
The background paper came with the kit as did the stamps.
I used some of the snowflake stamps to create the gray oval
panel behind the gnome.

Since I made a few gnomes, I was determined to make more cards:

and the inside:

This one is based from Freshly Made Sketch #416.
On the inside sentiment, I used a red marker to
color in the word Christmas.

Here's the last one:

..the inside:

I love a good pun!

This card is based from Sketch Saturday #290. Again, I colored the
word Christmas with a red marker. I adore this wee little gnome. I think
I want to try making him into a garden gnome and create some birthday
cards with him. 

So now it's your turn to play along! We hope to see your gnome projects
linked up in the Shopping Our Stash gallery. For more ideas, do
check out what my teammies created for your viewing pleasure!
