Karaoke Gnome

A while back, I made a get-well card for a friend using one of the Wee Gnomes from Whiff of Joy.  They are quirky and fun so I kept my fingers crossed she would like it - she loved it thankfully, and has just asked me to make a birthday card for a friend of hers using a different gnome.



Yeah, I know it is a really silly card, but I kinda like it!  I've used papers from my scraps box and I stamped the "I Serenade You" gnome onto the yellow paper to get the music notes placement.  I then stamped, painted and fussy cut the gnome on Bristol Board.  Sentiment is from a Hobby Arts set.

Distress Ink (ReInkers) colours used are:
Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Tattered Rose, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Dusty Concord
Scattered Straw, Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain, Pumice Stone, Black Soot

TIP OF THE DAY:  For those suffering from freezing temperatures (it was -10C this morning) and who have to use public transport (buses only put the heat on in the summer), take a hot water bottle.  My legs were lovely toasty warm this morning.  AND it had a second use of the hot water defrosting the office car park padlock!).
 
Hugs, Squirrel xx
