Here we are 15 days into March and time for new challenge at DIES R US CHALLENGE BLOG.
This card comes with a story. My sister's family is always playing practical jokes on each other and a gnome was the central character of one practical joke.
It all started with an ugly garden gnome that my sister found at a garage sale. She bought it as a gag Christmas gift for Tina, her eldest daughter. She started the hype about the fabulous gift she found for Tina’s “ special ” Christmas gift. When Tina opened the package, her expression was priceless and so was her language. Of course, my sister found said gnome in her stack of gifts the following Christmas. Stephanie, my sister’s youngest, feared she would be the next recipient, so she heisted the gnome and sent it to gnome land. This sparked the mischievous little gnome that lives in my sister' s heart, and she started buying and making gnomes at a feverish pace… 250 to be exact.
The next year my BIL and sister broke into Stephanie’s house while she was at work and hid the 250 gnomes with little gnome notes especially written for Stephanie. Every once in awhile she finds one that was overlooked. I suspect that my sister will get them all back at some point when she has nearly forgotten about them. In the meantime, this gnome card is for Stephanie. I think it will make her smile.

I always have a need for thank you cards and I also love to give friends gifts of cards that are all occasion and easy to mail. All you need to do is change the sentiment on this design and it could be used for any occasion. I love making watercolor backgrounds and when I take time to get out the inks and brushes I usually make several backgrounds in different colors. I love frame dies, and have several styles to change up the look of this design. It doesn't need to be a flower in the center... how about a fern, butterfly, birds, balloons, trees, etc. The DRU Store has DRU Store has so many dies and stamps that work for this simple card.
