Garfield and Gnomes

In my feelings for Mondays, I'm with Garfield on them, and this one will be worse because it is the first day back after a lovely relaxing week off.

Thankfully for me, and for everyone else around me, the feeling wears off by the afternoon!

Anyhoo, I thought I would start Monday with a smile for a change.  I shall go into work beaming, and that is really going to worry them.

And let's start the week here with a smile too.

So, this is an MFT stamp from the You Gnome Me set
thankfully I got the matching dies, although he's easy enough to fussy cut
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Background paper is Maja Designs - Life In The Country
Sentiment by Dovecraft
Shaped dies are by Spellbinders Nestabilities

Hoping your Monday is a good one folks
Squirrel xx

Love this one and the papers are perfect. He looks like he's saying 'peekaboo'!! Yup, if I came into work with a smile, they'd definitely think there was something up! Have a great Monday honey. As Paul said to me this morning, 'it'll soon be Friday'.

Kat W said...

He he, everyone will wonder what on earth you have been doing with your week off to make you so happy!
And now I'm smiling because of your gorgeously happy card; how can these cute gnomes not make you smile? The shaped base is really lovely and using the DP for the background is a fab idea!

I hope you are still smiling!

Big hugs, Kat xx

Such a brilliant card Squirrel and those papers are perfect for little gnomey!! I must be a little bit nuts because I LOVE Mondays at work, but then again I am only there Monday and Tuesday so it's actually a bit of a rest!! xx

This is a really lovely card Squirrel. Cute little gnome chap - sure to cheer anyone up, even on a Monday! Your card design is really clever too with the maja paper as a background.
(I'll let you into a secret...Monday is a 'not nice' day whether you have to go to work or not! - I retired in 2015 and I still have n't lost that Monday feeling - weird or what)!

The beauty of working evenings is that I don't get "that Monday Morning" felling LOL.
Love your delightful image and card, and as always, it is beautifully coloured :O)
