Gnome Time :)

Hi Everyone! BL was fun last night. I like when it's family teams because there main goal is to get fit and lose weight not game play, so makes it more enjoyable to watch..I am pulling for the blue team..OK on to the card. All the DP is from SU...The image is also from SU..I don't know the name of this set because a really generous person gave me some stamped images of the gnome boys..The sentiment is from MFT it Say's "Can Ya Dig It" ..I thought it was more fitting for this image...I did put real dirt on my card :) ..Story time :).. We have an acre of property (most of it dirt), well I needed dirt for my card, so I asked Tim to find me some because all I could find was mud, so he couldn't find any so he brings in some mud, plops it down in some aluminum foil and bakes it and Wa La! I have dirt..so thank you honey! :) (my hero) as always :) ..I created the flower out of a coffee filter, I think Beate demoed this technique..The sketch is from Create4fun Challenges ...It's another simple card but I liked how it came out..I hope you do too :)...have a great day
Thank You!!! Come Again!!!
