Papa Gnome

Have you seen the preview of the new animation Gnome & Juliet? I was laughing so hard when I saw the little gnome with the red wrestling suit humming & skipping happily on a yard. I was like.... oh my goodness, it's so stinkin' cute, I want one! LOL, I am crazy like that.

Any of you have the trolls collection? I collected them since I was in high school. It was love at first sight. The colorful hairs, the cute face.. and yes, even back then I wish my cute trolls would come alive, so I can talk to them. Sigh... every time I saw ridiculously cute stuff, I always wish I could have a live one. LOL, how fun would that be? I do have weird imgaination sometimes. :)

That's prbably why Brandon Mull's Faber Heaven series is one of my favorite series. Because it has fairies, unicorn, gnome, etc., that in the book they actually share part of our world, hidden from our human eyes of course. I am telling you, part of me never grow up, still love all the kiddy stuff.

Anyway, let's get back to the reason I am talking about gnome. A Day For Daisies has cute gnome releases this week. And, I was so thrilled when I saw them. Here's my card using one of the gnome and a couple of the potted plants.

Challenges:
For Fun Challenges - Spring or Winter
Paper Take Weekly - anything goes, optional: flowers
Paper Playtime - Anything Goes with a Digi

And, I don't know why, but I thought Irish blessing is a perfect match for the image. I want to frame this card, just because it looks so cute. It has quite a dimension to it. Here's an up-close look.


Officially, this image is called Night Gnome. But, I like to call it Papa Gnome, you know like Papa Smurf (another favorite!!). Check out what the other DT gals created for this new releases at ADFD blog. Here's a peek at some of this week images:


They also have fun new challenge this week, which is to use some kind of metal or metallic colors on your card. Could be a lot of metal or just a little. On mine, I used mettalic color pencils to color the pots and the gravels area.

Well, I get to stay home this morning due to the weather as all the  major highways were covered in ice. No snow, but I am happy I can spend my morning snuggles and pampering my doggies. Might have to come in to  the office for half day later. Hope you all stay warm!!

What an adorable card! I too, love gnomes. I even dressed up as the Travelocity Roaming Gnome for Halloween (we had to dress up at work). I made the whole costume myself -- I even had a white beard! Lol. It was funny. I think the movie looks so cute.

Great job on this card, Vera! I love all the detail! You've really brought Papa Gnome to life! ;o)

I know exactly what you mean about wishing little cute things would come alive...for me it was stuffed animals, so I grew up to work in animal training and rescue! The little guys can't "talk" per se, but they are quite alive! :)

Your blog is adorable and so is your card! Thanks for participating in this week's For Fun Challenge!
