Gnome birthday

 Happy 2022!
I hope you had a lovely Christmas with family and friends and
 that 2022 has started well for you.

We were having a lovely time, until I went and fell over on a walk
on New Years Eve!
I'm now sporting a large scabby knee and a very tender kneecap.

Luckily, I have had this cute image to play with, from Patties creations...
He is called Bubble the Gnome.

The challenge for January is either "snowmen / snow" or "anything goes."
I'm not wanting to make any more Christmas cards just yet, however I do have a few 
birthday cards to make for the next few months, 
so choose "Bubble the gnome" for a card for my sister's boyfriend. 
I coloured him with my alcohol markers and 3D'd his beard and nose. 
The stamped sentiment is from Kaiser crafts 
and I diecut the stars, adding a little punched star in the corner.
The edges are all inked and I did some dry embossing along some edges. 
I'm pleased with the way this one came first card for 2022!

So sorry you took a spill! I love the design of your card and that little gnome is adorable. You don't often see a skinny gnome, or even any of their legs. The natural color palette is really pretty, too.

Thanks for sharing your Birthday Cards project with us at Cut it Up!
