What Can We Do In The Forest?

I swap cards with a great group of gals on SCS. Every few months we have a new "Forest Swap." It's a forest swap, because the hostess of each and every forest swap is "Forest Ranger." We have a lot of fun in these swaps. There have been many, many forest swaps now. Our lastest swap was titled "What Can We Do In The Forest." Every swapper was to make a card of something you could do in the forest. Things like hiking, picnicing, camping, making S'Mores, etc.

With it being close to Christmas I decided to use a set I got quite some time ago from Queen Kat Designs. I love this little guy off to get his Christmas Tree!!! And what better thing to do in the forest at this time of year!!!

I used Whisper White and Real Red cardstock. The designer paper is some I picked up at either Joann's or Michael's. I used my Nestabilities and my scallped edged punch to complete my layout and colored the image with my Copics. The sign is stamped in Real Red ink and the Gnome image is stamp in Memento Ink, the color is Bamboo Leaves.

Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas!

Such a fun card! I love this gnome and may have to beg for one of two of him...lol Mike adores gnomes. When Kyle was little, my SIL took him to a friend's cottage. On the way there, they passed a house with 8 to 10 gnomes. He was told that the ground holds them during the day, but a night they are allowed to run around....hehehe
