The weather outside is so wrong for my post of today. I received the March release for Whiff of Joy in the mail a few days ago, very cute gnomes by Norma Fickel. Now I have to admit... I never colored an image by Norma Fickel before but these gnomes are very quick and nice to color. My first Gnome to show you is the "I miss you Gnome" (sorry no link yet since these will be released on March 1st). Here is my card: The roof of the gnome house is paperpieced with Twitterpatted paper by Imaginisce as is the rest of the designpaper used on this card. This card fits the current challenge at the Whiff of Joy Challenges blog which is paperpiecing (you have to be quick though, less then three days left to enter). The button is from stash and the button twine is by a Whiff of Joy and the color is Desert Sand. Here is a close up of the image:
Colored with my Copics and 3D paperpieced as always. Now I wasn't sure what kind of sentiment to use on this card until I had a friend on the phone the other day. This friend has everything going for her, she is healthy, succesfull and is surrounded by people who care about her and love her but still she worries about a few (in my eyes) stupid people who are probably just jealous and keep making her feel bad. At the time I was busy coloring this cute little gnome and when I got back to my project he reminded me of her all of a sudden. Here is this cute little gnome who is sitting in his cute little house with the green grass, flowers, love but does he look happy? There will always be things to get you worried but in the end you should look at the things that are good in live, count your blessings I guess. I mean, come on this guy is a gnome for goodness sake! How bad can life be right :)! So anyways.... here is the sentiment I thought of in this mood:
Now I'm not going to mention my friends name on this post but I do hope she knows I'm talking about her and gets the message. Love you girly, forget about the stupid people, enjoy all the things you've got going for you!
That's it for me for this post. Don't forget the cute Gnomes are coming into store on March 1st!
Take care people and be happy!!
