Gnome sweet gnome

          I don't know about you, but I don't think I would mind it a bit if this little guy made his home in my yard.  He is "Gnome Boy" drawn by the uber talented Torico for Birdie Brown and guess what!  you can pop over to the Birdie Brown blog and nab him cause he's a freebie for the BB October challenge.  I was blessed to be last month's winner and can't wait to use the digi I won.
     I was also blessed to be asked to be Guest Sweet Sunday Stamper for the sweet Karen Giron at Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge last week.  


     I adore her sketches.  In fact I've just about worn out my bookmark to her previous sketches page.  LOL  When she asked me to guest for her and I saw the sketch I knew this was going to be the image I used.
     Here's the awesome sketch.


     I hope you'll pop over to the challenge blog and join in the fun for the new challenge.  A HUGE thank you to Karen and her team for having me join them.  
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Allsorts--autumn leaves and trees
Crafts 4 Eternity--lots of leaves
Crafty Catz--autumn
Simply Create--autumn/fall
DYSU--warm colors
Color Throwdown--color palette
