IBFS Gnome

It has been so long since I posted. I hadn't forgotten you, just got busy learning my new IMac! Things are a bit different now, a GOOD kind of different! LOL! I can no longer use my scanner with my Mac so I am taking pictures. I ran out of time with the last couple of projects so I don't have pics of them. I made sure to get a picture of this little guy going to my Dad for Father's Day.

This gnome is from I Brake For Stamps (IBFS), from their new Fairy plate. Isn't he just adorable?? Since I still had out all the Copics I used I bundled them up for the picture. I also stuck in there the new sponge I bought from the Close to My Heart booth at the Rubber stamp convention I attended on Sunday.

*soapbox* Please visit your local conventions! It is such a wonderful opportunity to learn of new companies and meet other crafters! I found some awesome stamps at some great prices!! AND. . . . I got to meet Kelley from Our Daily Bread Designs!! Thanks for such wonderful stamps Kelley! And thanks for tracking me down with my bag in hand!! *blushes* Can you believe I got up after making my card and left one of my bags??! *stepping down off soapbox*

I used CPS card sketch for this card. I added "Faith" dots. The designer paper is some retired SU I had sitting in my drawer. I liked how the earthy colors meshed with my gnomes clothing colors. I had to use my largest scalloped rectagle on the white layer so I cut two from Chocolate Chip and made one of them larger. It was a bit of work layering just so but I eventually made it work.
