gnome one like you

there is a paper piecing challenge going on over at the sweet stamp shop's flickr group! you had me at paper piecing! 

so i made card that i love! and i also kept in mind one of the challenges going on at moxie fab worldincorporating the Gallon/Quart/Pint lesson in an innovative way! it sounded intimidating to me at first, but it's not! and it's such a fun lesson! 
my colors are: 
gallon - green
quart - red
pint - blue

i used the stamps from the sweet stamp shop's set, 'gnomies', and of course, i love them! you can't go wrong with gnomes in my book! and this one was made for paper piecing!! love it! 

i also paper pieced the mushrooms - but i colored in the dots with my white pen! i drew the paper piecing line with those tiny circles on the mushrooms! ha ha!

i flocked the gnomes beard - he he! and the gnome and the smallest mushroom is popped up for dimension. i even used the new pennant die cute from the sweet stamp shop on this card and flanked them with some different sized button hearts. :)

so that's it! just a bright, happy and cheerful card! 

ps - i should also mention...when i showed the card to my husband he said, 'gnome-body likes you!! that's so mean!' i was like, no!! you added the 's' to that word, it's 'gnome-body like you!'!! lol!  sigh. :D
