Gnome-ing me, Gnome-ing you....

aha...sorry couldn't resist it!! 

I haven't followed a sketch for a while and so last evening while Hubster was in bed and Connor at cricket I had a play with the latest Sketch Saturday layout.


I was lucky enough to have previously won the customer competition at Digistamp Boutique and  had to have this adorable set which I coloured with Promarkers to compliment the fabulous Doodle bug papers, Sunkissed and Kraft in Colour. The black mats really enhance those gorgeous colours ( see Michelle, it's rubbing off on me!!)

A challenge or two that caught my eye

Allsorts #318 - How does your garden grow?
Graphit Colour Challenge - Pink Orange & Yellow
Dis Digi design challenge - Celebrations
Simply papercraft #8 - Anything Goes
I love Promarkers #276 - Summertime

Hope it's a good week for you xx

What a really fun card!! I just love the papers you've chosen with this and you've done an amazing job with the sketch too!! Really fun title!! LOL!! :) HUGS

Grinned at the cute title! Clever - and this little Gnome is just delightful with his gardening work. Lovely coloring, and those papers are beautiful..so sunny. Liked the sketch too. Glad if you enjoyed the pics...nothing so beautiful as the countryside where you share. I always enjoy seeing these, so hope I didn't bore folks to pieces with the ones I posted today. Have a great week. Seeing lots of advertising re: Buckham Fair! Would so love to go see it. Hope you'll get to enjoy it this August. Hugs & TFS
