To Gnome Me...


 ...is to love me :) Welcome back to the final day of the There She Goes blog hop! If you have arrived here form Miss Karen's blog then you are exactly where you should be, if not then please start back at the TSG blog :)


Today I get to show you the set that I have been waiting for f-o-r-e-v-e-r! I absolutely adore gnomes and I was thrilled when Torico came up with this little fellow. It gets better. There is a whole set of these adorable little gnomes! The set is called My Little Friend is a 6x8 stamp set that includes a total of 31 stamps and will sell for $24.

This rather colourful card was put together for Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (SSSC109). I water coloured the gnome with tombows and then sponged in the background. I added a final touch of some chalk pencil shading and then paired the image up with an assortment of fun and bright coloured patterned papers :D



Would you like a chance to win the My Little Friend stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their My Little Friend Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own My Little Friend stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (Mar 26th) during the Release Party Chat.

Thanks for coming by today and now you are off to see what Miss Marisa has in store for you :D
