There's Gnomeplace Like Home

Hello and happy Friday!  I have a card for you today that I made with a couple of the new dies from the Gnome/Fairy release at The Scrapping Cottage.  I used Mr. Gnome and the Gnome Tree Stump House.  I cut everything with white card stock and colored with my Copic markers.  I thought it would be cute to have Mr. Gnome peeking from behind the house.  I hear Gnomes are kinda shy like that.  LOL!!  Should you happen to wonder how I did the wonky circle panel, Here's the deal...  I used my acrylic blocks!!  Yep, you heard me right!  I traced around my acrylic blocks that I use for stamping and cut the wavy circle out by hand.  Cool, huh?
My post is short and sweet today.  I'm babysitting for little Max, and he's keeping me on my toes!!  I hope you don't mind if I share a picture of his first wagon ride yesterday.  The weather was a warm 75 degrees, and it was so good to be outside.  The dog ran into the picture just about the time I snapped the shot.  I could have done without that, but that's the way it goes!  Max looks a little terror stricken, but he REALLY liked the ride!!  Have a blessed weekend, and happy crafting!
