Happy Toadstool Tuesday!

Have you joined all the gnome fun at Paula's AltAred Art? There's a gnome party going on and Paula has invited you to join in!

I enjoy making cards and last year for St. Patrick's Day I made this one ... you're right, it sure is a gnome rather than a leprechaun but I won't tell if you won't teehee! (my profuse apologies to the gnomes and leprechauns out there!) I made it using a quilt paper piecing pattern from Artisania. Isn't the internet wonderful?! If you stink at drawing, you can find anything your heart desires online for your craft patterns.

You may find the free pattern on the Artisania blog ... look on her right sidebar and under free patterns, you will see "Gnomelet Pattern" ... click on that for gnome-y adorableness.

Oh my gosh! Look at this wonderful blog of vintage gnome and mushroom cards, Gnomes and Mushrooms!
