Now for my 2nd card, It's a CHRISTMAS card!
Remember my last giveaway where I asked you guys to leave a comment with the perfect sentiment to add? I had so much fun reading all your suggestions, I decided to have another GiveAway just like it.  Before I tell you how you can win, let me tell you about this card first.

Project #335 of this year
A2 size card using Blue Recollections cardstock (5 1/2" x 4 1/4")
Green dotted paper and Rudolph paper from new Christmas stack my hubbub bought me from Michael's last weekend. It's the Recollections "Jolly & Bright" 12"x12" paper pad. Lots of glitter in this one too. :)
Santa (okay really a Gnome) is cut from the FRESHLY PICKED cart page 37 @ 3 1/2".

The sentiment mat is cut from ELEGANT EDGES "Doily" page 33 using the Oblong cut & Shadow feature.

I added black tiny rhinestones from Recollections for his eyes and an orange one for his little nose.
Heart button & jute from Michael's.
Now.... about that GIVEAWAY...
All you need to do is tell me what the PERFECT SENTIMENT for this Christmas card would be in a comment.  I'll draw a winner and post the winner's name on Sunday, Nov. 27th. The prize is a SECRET, but I promise, you'll LOVE it! Remember, all giveaway winners on my blog must contact me within 1 week of my announcement or your prize goes back in the pot to be used again at another time.

  1. Love your owl card - brought a smile to my face

  2. What a great series! I love owls!! For your sentiment I would write: "I'll be your Gnomeo this Christmas!"-Sorry, I just saw the movie last night, so I couldn't help myself!-Happy Thanksgiving!-Raquel @

  3. Love both your cards!! How about "From Our Gnome To Yours"

  4. I love both the cards, thanks for showing how you made them, for a sentiment I would put " Pause,Dream enjoy, the Gnome:)

  5. I love love love both cards but my fave is the gnome card! Did you just read Cathy's comment? Hilarious! I agree with her! Pause, dream and enjoy the gnome! Priceless!

  6. ok so using K Andrew stamps of course!! I would use the words "i'll" "be" from the owly hoo set, "gnome" you could make using Winter Wishes set (take the letters form other words in the set) and "for" and "Christams" from the Winter Wishes set as well to make "I'll be Gnome for Christmas" Love both cards very creative, can't wait to see what you put as the sentiment!!

  7. The perfect sentiment: Busy in the North Pole but stopped to make you this card ! Merry Christmas and a Gnometastic New Year!

  8. I just love your owl card, and you gnome card is just too cute.. I would say the perfect sentiment would "Santa's Gnomie" lol..

    Scrappy hugs,
    Amanda :0)

  9. Both of these cards are so cute. I think it should say...."I'll Be Gnome for Christmas!"

  10. This is so fun! How about Magical wishes being sent your way!

  11. Hello, I am looking for a deer. Are you it? Thanks so much....this is fun and makes your brain work.

  12. How about a little attitude for the card. 'Happy Elfin Christmas!' ;) Great cards Janis!


  13. I am so happy you did a series of these cards because I am loving each one! They are so adorable! I never really thought about using them year round like you are dong Janis. You clever lady! Hope you had a great turkey :-) Amy

  14. How about "Dashing through the Gnomes" Thanks for putting on this giveaway. You are such a busy lady yet you take so much of your precious time to do things for us. God bless you!

  15. What a fun card! So cute... as always!

    How about "Counting down to Santa's big day" or "It's almost time for Santa's big day"? Then on the inside... "Rudolph is ready to guide Santa's sleigh" with a stamp / cutout of a sleigh.

    Happy Holidays!

  16. OK I LOL with the "Happy Elfin Chritmas" one, that was funny stuff!!! My card would say, "Rudolph and I are wishing you a Merry Christmas" OK not really, but the Elfin one is the best!!!!!
