A little somethin' somethin'?

Hi all! I have 2 cards to show you today. The first one is using one of my fantabulous gnome stamps from Just Johanna's Odd Bird Planet. I adore her gnomes, they are too flipping cute. This guy is "gnome tangled in lights" but, uh, since Christmas is over, I had to make the lights a vine and leaves. It works, right?

The card stock is Chocolate Chip from SU! and Kraft from PTI. The DP is Basic Grey Offbeat. A scallop punch, Always Avocado ribbon from PTI and a few baubles and there you go!

He looks a little nervous and I like that.

The next one is a card I made for the My Favorite Things Guest Designer Challenge. The task was to make a one layer card. Let me tell you, SO much harder than I thought.
This set is brand spankin' new from MFT and called Owl for All Seasons. It is super cute and can be used year round. I stamped the owls on PTI white card stock (6 times I stamped them until I had one I didn't smudge. Really... 6)

Then I colored them with Copics and SU! Makers. Then I stamped a few snowflakes and stuck some baubles in the center. Since it was a chilly winter scene I added some puff paint to the branch.
I love their little faces. Their beaks look like little smiley mouths. So cute. Unfortunately I was too late to qualify for the contest Grrr... I couldn't get a good picture of this card. Really the camera did NOT like it.

Well folks, tonight begins American Idol! Yes!!!

The Gnome is so awesome! Luv the overall look of your card! And your owls, are soooooo cute! I have seen other thing made with them & I must say I found them quite "odd". You card makes me reconsider! I luv IT!!!
