Gnomies for Paper Players #476

Hi Everyone.  Happy Sunday.

It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and it's theme week!

I decided it was the perfect opportunity to bring out my gnome die.  I am obsessed with gnomes right now!  I die-cut him using some SU DSP and backed him onto some Neenah Solar White cardstock.  I used the Spellbinders Hemstitch dies to create an interesting border for him.  It might be a little hard to see, but I added some shading on his beard and colored his nose.

I hope you will join us and play along this week.  We can't wait to see what you do with this challenge.  As usual, the design team have some fabulous inspiration for you:

On a personal note:

Today it is going to reach 43 degrees!  It was so warm overnight that I could hear the snow melting off the roof the whole night.  It's wonderful to feel warmer temps and to see the sun.  We know it won't last long, but we will enjoy it for today!

I was sitting in my office and was caught site of something in the corner of my eye... I looked up and saw my visitor:

Deer (1 of 1)-6

She was munching away at the plant seeds on the echinacea that are left over from fall.  She didn't hang around long before she bounded off.  But it was wonderful spending a couple of minutes with her:-)

I'll be back later with another card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
