Make Gnome Mistake

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

Another weekend is upon us. We have a busy day today. First, we have my niece's graduation party to attend. Then there is a special fundraiser we will also be attending.

The fundraiser is for a little boy who was in my Pre-School class. In October he was one of the 6 children in the Pittsburgh area who was hit with AFM. It's a polio like virus that left him unable to walk.

There have been plenty of hospital stays in the ICU. He will be undergoing surgery in the next couple of months. A Dr in St Louis has pioneered a nerve transplant surgery for kids with AFM. She has had great success with the surgery. Kids have been able to walk again. Here is a link that gives more info about Sam.

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. I used the Gnome on Tree Stump die to create a birthday card for my son. The inside will have the birthday greeting.

I started my card with the sketch #755 from Splitcoaststampers. I already had the designer papers in mind that I wanted to use so this sketch worked out great for me.
I bought a paper pack from Hobby Lobby that had a nice selection of watercolored background papers. The blue looked like a sky so I went with that one for element 1 of the sketch. I also had some paper that had a rainbow on it. So I used that for element 2, 3, 4 and the circle shape.

I cut the gnome in different colors of cardstock. I used the packaging photo because the colors would coordinate well with my designer papers. 
The sentiment is from a stamp set by Sweet Pea Designs. It's all about gnomes. I stamped directly on the designer paper using blueberry bushel ink (Stampin'-Up). 
The gnome is attached to the circle using dimensional adhesive.

I finished off my card by adding a few glitter enamel dots. Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time......God bless.
