I'd pick you...

Hello there!

I absolutely could not resist adding the super cute Gnome Friends set to my stamp collection when it released at CC Designs earlier this month. I'm so proud of myself that it only took a few days after their arrival to get a couple of these sweet little gnomes inked up and on a card. I did a tiny bit of masking to make it look like the gnome on the mushroom is a little further in the distance than our bearded friend up front. For the background I imagined these two friends whiling away a summer afternoon in an orchard of some kind. Probably because I have many fond memories of playing and adventuring among the neat rows of trees as a kid. What I wouldn't have given to stumble across a couple of magical gnomes during one of those days, LOL!  ;)

Have a good one!
