To Gnome You!

Is this not the cutest little gnome you have ever seen? He is the freebie this month over at Birdie Brown & you just might still have time to get him if you hurry over there.

I colored my little gnome with prismacolor pencils & mounted him on Bazzill CS cut from spellbinder dies. The autumn colored pearls are from Bo Bunny, buttons & leaves are from my stash & the sentiment I printed on the computer. We have left autumn behind & are right into that nasty wintery weather here...much too soon I might add! We had 5" of snow over the weekend & it isn't showing signs of disappearing anytime soon. Oh well, I am off to the city for a jaunt around the shops to make myself feel better....maybe get some Christmas shopping started. I do plan to stop at the craft shop & see if I can pick up a few Memory Box dies....they are hard to come by here in the boonies! Have a great day!
Hugs, Renee

Love you ladies with all my heart!
