Gnome Man as Santa

     New challenge at QKR Stampede this morning and our theme is everybody's favorite, "Anything Goes" so I took advantage of that to get one more Christmas card done for the stash.  I used Digi 4201 "Gnome Man" and Digi 15710 "Name Ain't There" for the sentiment.


     All it took to turn him from a plain gnome into Santa was to color him in red.  :-D  I used ProMarkers and chalks, and die cut him with a die from Spellbinders.  The dp is a left over scrap from my stash.  I made the candy cane with recycled white and red wires, twisted together and curved into the cane shape.  The bow is tied from red cord.  It's a CAS design and I really like it.  This one will be easy to mail come holiday time.

     That's all I  have for today but I did do another post late last night; if you missed it, be sure to check it out, too.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
