I'll be Gnome for Christmas

Last year I had lots of fun with Mo Manning's fabulous gnomes from Mo's Digital Pencil and I made some tall slimline cards in a very CAS style using two stencils and 3 die cuts. I was pleased to discover that my original design worked well in a smaller USA A2 size and looked good on a tent folded red card blank.  I had a blast trying to match gnomes' shapes, sizes, beards and hair styles and colours with individual recipients.     Here are Egli and Hedda for two couples.  Egli comes with Tini here and Hedda comes with Frode here 

Please come and play along with our current "Anything Goes theme with a Mo Manning image" at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge.  My teamies have some fabulous inspiration for you and they love it when they have visitors to their blogs.  And check out these places for even more inspiration:
* Dream Team Blog HERE for inspiration
* Mo's Facebook Clubhouse HERE, and
* Mo's "Patreon" Page HERE 
There are three levels of Patron to choose from with a minimum of just $2.50 per month!
