What's Up Gnomie?

Hi Crafty Friends,
Are you ready for another fabulous challenge at Kat Scrappiness? Since we celebrated Moms last month, let's celebrate Dads and men this month. The theme is "All About the Boys". My inspiration for you is this cool dude from the NEW Summer Gnomes stamp set!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Have you ever surfed before? Can you do it well?
A: Me? I have never tried! I don't like the ocean.

  3. Great card. No I have never surfed. Would be way too scared.

  4. Cute card! I love the ocean waves with the patterned papers!
    I have not tried surfing. I love the beach and wading in the water, but that's as far into the ocean as I like to go!

  5. Such an awesome and fun scene! I love gnomes more each day!
    I have never tried surfing either. I haven't been a fan of being
    IN the water since I saw Jaws (I swear!). lol I do enjoy snorkeling
    so I will get in the water for that.

  6. Such a summery gnome. He is great

  7. Those waves - love, love, LOVE! The colour scheme is fabulous! Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble :)

  11. Oh my gosh....if this isn't the cutest card ever. Love that gnome! I have never attempted to surf and never will. Not my cup of tea.

  12. The waves you created are so cool! Good for you gnome to surf on, I never have surfed and probably never will. Thank you for sharing with us at Double Trouble!

  14. Great and funny card! Love the colors :)
    Thanks a lot for joining us at Creatalicious! :)

  15. This is such a cute design! I've never tried surfing, no. I used to enjoy swimming in the sea sometimes in the summers when I was a child, but I've never been a very confident swimmer so I didn't go out all that much.

  16. Love your beach scene with the gnome and cute!! Thanks so much for joining us at Dies R Us for the challenge!

  17. Great card and way TOO CUTE! Perfect for the Die Cut Divas' challenge of Summertime Fun at

    I have gone snorkeling in Hawaii and had a great time, but too old for surfing. LOL

  18. Love your color palette! Super cute! Yes, I took a surfing class. It is a very good work out. I was exhausted but had a great time though!

  19. Love your scene card. Great papers. Love the Gnome and little ducky. I have never surfed. Even if I could, I wouldn't because of sharks.

  20. Wow, this is such an adorable card. I live in a big surf town, but have never tried to surf. I prefer to look at the ocean, as it is rather cold. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.

  21. Your surfing gnome really made me smile! Spotted him over at Die Cut Divas... Enjoy your summer!

  22. its super fun card!
    no I never surfed.

    Nope, I've never surfed - I've swum in many competitions, in the safety of a swimming pool! I like to know what's swimming around below!
