Birdies & Gnome

Hi ya' peeps! How are you all doing? Yesterday was a pretty good day for me. I get to play in my scrap room a bit and made a couple cards. And, cross my finger I might get another part time contract job. So, all in all I love the way this week is going. :)

Now, let's get on to the cards, shall we? A couple months ago, I won this cute stamp from Paper Works & Co., and finally I get to ink it up. For the coloring, instead of trying to figure out what color I want to use, I decided to just follow the colored sample from the package. Sometime, it's easier to do just that than re-invent the wheel. And the design is based on the sketch at PWCO Blog.


Next card is using the cute gnome from There She Goes stamps based on their TSG104 sketch challenge. I also made this card using Embellish Crochet Trim Color Trends challenge. I actually forgot that I have purchased this decorative trim and was thrilled when I found it. It fell into my papers drawer and I found it by accident. Yay. :)


I am happy to say that I think my mojo is finally coming back. I've been feeling out of sync and haven't been too happy with the cards I posted the past few times. With these couple cards I finally feel pretty happy with the results. Besides, who could resist a cute gnome? He kind of reminds me of Papa Smurf. :)

Hope you all have a lovely day and thank you so much for stopping by.
