Dear Ones~
This time over at Double D we are playing with gingham - SUMMER gingham to be exact. Here is the Mood Board for our inspiration:

And here is my design:

I am so partial to gnomes, and this little guy from Simon Says Stamp just makes me smile. Paper piecing his clothes and wheel barrow was so much fun. Gingham lends itself to paper piecing very well because of the small design, so it was easy peasy. Painted a few parts with my Zigs and die cut the image out with the companion die.

The Ingredients:
GKD White and Black Onyx Card Stock
SSS Spring Gnomies
Recollections Home Basics Patterned Paper
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers
Stash Twine

If you head on over to the  Double D Challenge Blog and play along, you could win this adorable patterned paper pack.  And don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created for your inspiration. 

Boy, howdy, is it hot here in Northern Michigan today. 91 is just unheard of...what is going on??? I'm so glad you stopped by, I adore your comments. They always make me smile. Please stay well and enjoy your crafting. Now head on over to Double D to see what's going on. 
Until next time, here's celebrating your Creative Muse.
