Mid Challenge Reminder over at A Little Bit Crafty.

Hi Folks!

hope you're all ok?  Well, I'm worse than a bus...few posts for ages and then I'm going to hit you with a few this week, lol.  I had been crafting but until the digis were released at the Lacy Sunshine  store, I couldn't post them so they've piled up.

Anyway, today's card is a DT card for A Little Bit Crafty as it's the mid challenge reminder.  The theme is Anything Goes and, for this challenge only, you can only enter once.  It's a brand new challenge ran by the fabby Paula Holifield so head on over there and take a look.

 Lacy Sunshine is one of the sponsors for this month and I've used one of our (I can say 'our' as The Gnomes of Gnarly Wood were my idea...poor Heather, lol) fabulous digis which we have only just released.

This card features the digi called Mooning Morris who is from our new Gnomes of Gnarly Wood collection.'s a moonie!  Lol.  Yes, hands up...I apologise.  It was my idea to do a mooning gnome!  Lol.  I have given Heather lots more ideas as well, so watch this space.  :oD   Right now, there are a load of new Gnomes in the shop including one she's done of me on a Naughty if!!  I'm a good girl, I am!  :oD

I've coloured Mooning Morris with the following markers:

Copics E00, E11 and E21 for the skin.
Hair:  Cool Grey 1 and blender
Red:  Crimson, Berry and Lipstick Red
Blue:  Marine, Turquoise and Cool Aqua
Soles of shoes:  Cool Grey 5, 3 and 1

I used Spellbinders dies to do the cutting work and to create an easel base...with a lot of help from my fabby Ebosser!

The paper is from a Me to You paper pad, and I've used that for the backing paper and the flowers, which were cut using Spellbinders Daisy Patch dies and finished with a faux gem.

The sentiment was created on my lappy.

A green bow from my stash finished it off.

Hope you like Mooning Morris...I love him and all his friends down at Gnarly Wood.  Expect to see them quite often (especially in the coming days) as they're my new favourites!

I've entered this card into the following challenge: Add Some Red

Take care everyone and happy crafting!
