Gnomeo, Gnomeo ... (aka Occasions Mini Sneak Peek!)

I have to admit that when I saw some of the new things in the upcoming Stampin' Up Occasions Mini Catalog that I was a little underwhelmed ... but I think I musta just blown through it too fast!! And the LAST thing on my "wish list" was the little Gnome Sweet Gnome stamp set. So, what was on my preview order?? And what was the FIRST set I created something with??? The picture pretty much says it all ...

I made this card for my nephew's 18th birthday (Happy Birthday, Crayton!). The more I have looked at this little Gnomeo dudes, the more I am liking them!! (against my own better judgement, I might add!!). It's still hard for me to believe that people actually BUY these little gnome-y statues and put 'em in their gardens ... Smiley from

I am getting really close on finishing up my Christmas cards. Hope to have them in the mail by Tuesday (and I'll be sharing them with you a few days after that ... I'd like for the recipients to actually see them in person first, before actually seeing them on my blog!! --- which is assuming that any of the recipients actually READ the darn thing!!)

Paper: Early Espresso, Garden Green, Real Red, Whisper White, Frostwood Lodge DSP
Ink: Early Espresso, Stazon Black

I LOVE what you've done with this adorable gnome. On my list now. Especially his plaid jacket- too cute.
