Polkadoodles Gnome-tastic Collection

Hello and welcome back!!  Today's card features a cute sentiment in a shaker tag!


Normally I choose my papers first and then colour my image but this time I didn't and WOW is that a whole ton harder!!  LOL!  Never again!  不不  I did print out a sheet from Octavia Moonfly - Paper Heaven 4 on the Ultimate Graphic paper and used that for my base layer.  Then I cut a tag or wide arrow shape using a sheet from the Timeless Rose 6" x 6" craft paper pad.

I combined 2 images from the new Gnometastic collection and the first is  Gnometastic "Birthday Cake" digi available in black and whitelight skin precoloured and deep skin precoloured and all include the svg/dxf file.  The 2nd image is Gnometastic "Birthday Gift" digi available in black black and whitelight skin precoloured and deep skin precoloured all include the svg/dxf file.  I coloured this image using my copics and listed them below.  I did add some sort of hash marks or burlap look to her hat using my prisma pencil crayon for some added texture and some cute copic flower shapes to her top.  Ohhhh and I did get the idea of his apron from the pre-coloured image.  So cute with the stripes!

The slimline shape made it easy to add a sentiment right beside the image allowing me to use a sentiment to the shaker element from the new Gnome-tastic Sentiments printable downloads.  I like not having to think of a sentiment so this set is just handy and I also like that because it's a download, you can size it anyway you want it!!  

After adding some ribbon, glittery pop up pearls and flowers embellishment this card was done!!

Have you ever heard the song "If I Knew You Were comin'"?  This card reminded me of that song.  I'm pretty sure I heard it on Sesame Street (a child's show from when I was a kid) but it turns out it was an actual song released in 1950!  

If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake, baked a cake, baked a cake
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
Howdya do, howdya do, howdya do?

There's more but I thought this was enough to have it stuck in our head so ... you're welcome!  不不不

Have a great day!
