Color Throwdown/CAS(E) this Sketch: Gnome

It's getting close enough to Christmas that I can't make Christmas cards just for fun any more.  OK - that didn't come out right.  It's all fun - but I have to have a recipient for each card that I make.  I didn't have a card for my oldest son.  I had made this gnome card for my youngest so I figured why not make another card with this quirky little guy.


I had lots of help with this card.  Color Throwdown gave me the colors and CAS(E) this Sketch gave me the layout!  (As I was writing this post and linking to CtS, I realized one of the design team used the gnome too!!  You'll have to check it out, she did some fabulous highlighting on her gnome's beard.)

I'm in pretty good shape for Christmas this year.  I'd rather be a bit further ahead, but I do have some fun new products on my desk that I'm excited to work with which is keeping me motivated.  The day after Thanksgiving, there will definitely be Christmas music playing and Christmas cards being created in my house!

  2. Hi Kim! Happy to see someone else loves the gnome as much as I do, and I LOVE the colors from CTD that you used.

  3. So cute! I love that darling little gnome and your design is perfect to showcase him.


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my card! I do get spam comments so your comment will be held until I read it and release it!
