Gnome Sweet Gnome for A La Card Monkey 89!!

Hi Blogging Friends!!

I have had those little Gnome's on my mind for a few weeks now, like "burning a whole in my Pocket" lol So I got them out today and made this cute card... that just makes me smile!!

I used the new Twitterpated paper on this card. I know one thing, that one pack of this paper is not going to be enough.

This is a fun sketch, and it makes you think a little!!
If you want to join the Challenge just go to A La Card Monkey.

"Live in the Sunshine" is a great saying for the Gnomes. I also used one of the Vintage Flowers on the rosette, they are on the Clearance rack this week for only $4.00, what a good deal and they look so cute with the Gnomes.

The measurement of the base of the Card is 7x4 1/4

Here is my Second card I made at the same time. I have been trying to make 2 cards of every challenge so that I have more in my stash! Plus if I give one away I still have the second one!! Yeah!!!

I also worked on some Lego's today, I really love Sponge Bob! My Son Calvin got a bunch of sets for Christmas.

Here is Sponge Bob and Patrick on an Island together. They are just so cute I had to share them with you all.

Oh my, these are too cute. I resisted the Gnomes AND the Twitterpated, but I know at least one of them will be on my next order! I LOVE this sketch---will definitely be playing along! And look at you, Ms Lego Queen! Your boys must love to play with you!
