Well, Hello, Gnomey!

Aloha friends!

How is your week? I hope you have inky fingers!

My oldest "child" will be 40 this summer. I still have a few of his baby clothes and they are so tiny! He just loves gnomes - yes, gnomes! Who knew? When I saw this stamp set from Lawn Fawn, well, just "had to have it" lol. You understand! I made 4 of these, and will at least try to make one like this but as a shaker card. The 3D Crystal Lacquer is too thick and probably won't dry before tomorrow. I stuck my finger into it just before the initial layer dried, and that is why it needed a second coat. Boy, is it THICK! It's on the mushroom circles, the belt buckle, the windows, and the cloud.

This will be entered into:

  1. hahaha I love a good garden gnome, so fun and fantastic! Happy Birthday to your almost 40 year old! Love the little fun scene you created, especially the gnome and that toadstool house....cuuuuute!

  2. That is so cute and adorable. I bet you had fun making it too. Lovely coloring.

  3. Awwww.... Such a cute gnome with his "gnome, sweet gnome" beside him! (Grin) And you are not the only one who sticks her fingers in the glossy accents, glue, etc., before it's dried! PS. My baby is going to be 39 this year, so I know how you feel! (Just how did THAT happen?!?)
