Lawn Fawn Sunday

Hello again!  I hope you've enjoyed the weekend.  I have enjoyed not doing too much, sometimes no plans are the best plans. :)

I wanted to share the card I made for this round of Lawnscaping Challenge- this is #52- Stamp a Scene.  I had so much fun with this one!  This little Gnome from the set Gnome Sweet Gnome is one of my favorite LF stamps.  My only wish is that he had a little girlfriend. =)  Which reminds me, have you seen Gnomeo and Juliet?  I think it is a pretty darn cute kids movie.  They make so many good kids movies these days...but I digress.

I combined this guy with the hat and shamrock from Hat's Off to You to make him into a little Leprechaun.  Isn't he the cutest?!  I used Staz On black and markers with my watercolor pen to get the watercolor effect.  The rainbow is ribbon (obviously right) and the cloud is from Bon Voyage.  I glittered up the cloud so that it would match the background.  That was fun, I really don't use enough glitter!!  If I had a cauldron stamp I would have included that with some gold.  Even with out it, I am pretty happy with the way it turned out with out it.   Is that picture a little fuzzy though?  I can't tell, maybe AI need new glasses.  Here is a close up that looks better to me.





I have been Honorable Gnome multiple times over on the Lawnscaping blog, but I *really* want to be a Top Mow-it All or better yet The Queen of Green- that would be so cool!  Who knows, maybe this will be the one...it does make me feel pretty LUCKY! ;)

UPDATE:  I got an invite to participate in V's Sweet Ideas Challenge (VSC #9) which is themed masculine cards.  How nice!  Thank you Karen!  I am all about challenges, so of course I'd love to play. :)
