BBTB2/Gnome

Happy Monday.... almost the middle of June already and I was just saying "oh my, it's June 1st". Theresa is our wonderful BBTB2 hostess this week and she asked us to design with the Gnome on Freshly Picked. I hope you have come to call from the BBTB2 blog where enjoyed the wonderful creations from our design team. I didn't have Freshly Picked cartridge and I couldn't find a gnome on any other cartridge.... so Theresa gave some additional options. We could use a bird bath, we could alter an elf.... ...and that is what I did. I went to Paper Dolls Dress Up and I cut the basic body shape.... then I hopped over to Santa's outfit and cut the beard, the clothing came from one of the other PPDU options and the hat is from the Witch. I cut a birdhouse from Independence Day Seasonal... The fence and bird I believe are from Happy Hauntings but actually I grabbed this up from a box lid of spare dies and that is also true of the shaped frame. I added some strips of green and some punched flowers.
These little fellas are guardin' the garden.... And they don't seem to mind that they really don't resemble a true gnome.

The inside has a little poem.

Thanks as always for stopping by and if you leave a comment, I will love it.

Oh Carole I just Love your little Gnomes, they are adorable, my Gnomies may be coming to visit your little Gnomies, lol and love that they are guarding the garden. I have a little bunny that seems to like my garden and he doesn't seem to be to afraid of me, just kind of hangs out, I don't mind, it's company, lol! I'm so glad you liked the challenge and was able to play, I was in a panic when I realized there weren't any other Gnomes, then elfs popped in my head, lol!
((Hugs)) Theresa
