Gnome Friends

Hello, friends. Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all doing well and away from the fires and path of Hurricane Sally! We are on the dry side here, so no rain except for the usual afternoon showers that are common here in Texas.

I had an outdoor project to work on today - reattaching the metal back of my bench. Back in May, I went to sit on it when my kids came for a visit and it just fell off. I recently had a handyman refinish the bench and when he put it back together, he used screws that were too short, so they just all fell out of the holes. It took some doing, but I've got it all back together with a nice new cushion on it and an old sheet so the outside kitties can sleep on it without messing up the cushion. Besides, Frosty likes to hide under the bench whenever it storms, so the sheet gives her a little more protection.

So, today I have a card that I made from a card kit sent to me by Shelly which is another kit received from the card kit swap I am in with my theme of flowers and/or butterflies. She sent me these cute little garden gnomes and I had fun putting this card together to make it sort of look outdoorsy.

The gnome image, as well as the sentiment, is from Simon Says Stamps - Spring Gnomes. The flower spray is Bloom from Pink Fresh Studios. The blue DP is from Bo Bunny Harmony collection. I also used a strip of washi tape across the top of what is like a brick wall. I added a couple sequins and colored with my Copic Markers. The panel and sentiment are popped up on a base of Stampin Up Delightful Daffodil.

Thanks Shelly for the fun kit. I have more fun images and embellishments to play with later.
