Acorn Ale on a Hot Summer Day

      When the days are hot and the summer sun shines bright, gnomes cool off with a bit of Acorn Ale.   They love it so much, they keep drinking it right through until Thanksgiving!  "Acorn Ale" is the name of this adorable image from SheepSki Designs and they are the sponsor for the challenges at both Creative Knockouts this week and for Your Scrapbook Place this month so this card is doing double duty as a DT inspiration piece.  :-D

     The image was colored with ProMarkers, then cut with a Tonic Studios die.  The two framing pieces were cut with QuicKutz dies.  Background CS made with scraps from the basket.  The ribbon for the bow and the wrapped strip were also left over scraps and I have no idea what company made them.  Sentiment printed and cut with an Avery Elle die.

     I sure hope you're going to come and play with us in both challenges.  We love being inspired by you!  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
