Happy Sunday Everyone!

I come to you today with a FANTABULOUS Spotlight Sunday post. We are so excited to have SCRAPPY MOMS STAMPS for our Spotlight Sunday and Sponsor this week! Thats right, SCRAPPY MOMS STAMPS - so be sure to check our Challenge Me Monday post tomorrow.

Melanie and Tammy have been so nice and have generously donated their BRAND NEW, JUST RELEASED "QUIRKY QUOTES" Stamp Sets to SIX of our FANTABULOUS DESIGNERS! I had the pleasure to be one of the lucky designers and choose to use the "There's no place like Gnome!" from the BRAND NEW "QUIRKY QUOTES" set.

Gnomes are ALL the rage right now and I couldn't resist making my own Mr. Gnomeo and a cozy, little "Gnome" for him.

The Mushrooms, Picket Sign, and Mr. Gnomeo are from the Cricut Freshly Picked Cartridge. Mr. Gnomeo was cut at 3-5/8" and given a combination of two Peachy Keen 'Critter Faces' Face. The hat and shoes were embossed with the 'Swiss Dots' folder.

The Mushrooms were cut at 5" and paper pieced with Echo Park 'Walk in the Park' papers inspired by this week's ColourQ #93. I just LOVED the bright colors and think its what made my little "Gnome" come to life.

 To create the "Door", I used the 'bbybag-s' (baby bag handle) from the Cricut Doodlecharms Cartridge. My original intentions were to have the "door" open, but it didn't quite work out.

The grass is from the Cricut Create A Critter Cartridge cut at 1-1/4". I don't have a size for the Picket Sign, - sorry - I forgot to save this last step and lost it. It was cut out twice, one being 1/2" smaller than the first. And to that, I stamped SCRAPPY MOMS STAMPS' "QUIRKY QUOTES - There's no place like Gnome!" sentiment.

All shadows were welded together using Cricut Design Studio and then I started adding layers to give the card - yes, it's a card - some dimension.

I hope you have enjoyed my "Gnome and Mr. Gnomeo". I had an absolutely great time making it.

NOW, be sure to head on over to today's FCCB's Spotlight Sunday post to learn a little bit more about Melanie and Tammy and to see FIVE more SCRAPPY MOMS STAMPS "QUIRKY QUOTES" projects!

Have a GREAT Day!
