Whimsical Gnome Santa

Hello friends and followers! Happy Sunday!

Whimsical Gnomes was one of my favorite stamp sets
released this year from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. 
I decided to color one of the adorable gnomes up like
a Santa gnome and make a fun Christmas card.
I was kind of proud of myself because I used two 
die cut trees and the snow hills that I had laying on my 
table from a previous card.  I love when I actually use 
some stash and/or extras laying on my craft desk!  

One of the trees has an embossed pattern on it which I
was going to leave just as it was and then somehow I
got black ink on my finger and on the tree.  So...
then I grabbed a sponge dauber and added a little green
ink to cover up the black boo boo.  Crafters are so
good at thinking of plan b :o).  The sentiment
is from "Shake It Up!" also by KKS.

This card is being shared on the 
as my DT card for 12 days of Christmas.  

I would also like to enter this in the following challenges:
( I chose June 2016 - Christmas Landscapes)
S = Snow, T= trees, A=aqua (the paper is a light aqua) R= Red, 

Thanks so much for stopping in to visit me today! 
Hugs to each of you! D
