Just because...

Guess what I did last night? I made a card cause I wanted to! I haven't done that in awhile and when I came across this challenge Skipping Stones,  I knew I wanted to play along. Mostly cause they have this new set of kitty cat stamps that are soooo darn cute!


I have had this gnome set for awhile but have never used it cause the stamps are so tiny. I am use to much larger images but this is a 5x5 card and I think he fits on it really well. I followed the sketch over at Skipping Stones and I think he came out really cute. I whipped this one out pretty quickly due to the small image, only took me about an hour from start to finish. Ok, shower time then off to work!

He is a little cutie, for sure. Isn't it fun when you get a card done quickly and it comes out great - first time?
