About The Episode

After 15 Craft Roulette episodes, I can confidently say, each week is different! Wow! they are all ever so different!

Never have I ever thought of this combination for a card series, but how fantastically FUNN it turned out to be.

I started a “gnome” thing last fall when I saw gnomes everywhere in paper crafting. During the time I was a Close To My Heart consultant. CTMH did not have a gnome stamp or set, so I took things into my own hands. Well, really, just my right hand, because I can’t draw a hoot with my left hand.  You can see those videos on my YouTube Channel.

There are some St. Patrick’s Day Gnomes, too, but I can’t find them.

And now, the bright gnomes of Craft Roulette! All hand drawn (try it, it’s FUNN), which works because they can be sized to fit the project.
Like a bag of potato chips, I couldn’t leave the first card alone after the show. Now it looks like it should be part of a children’s story. The little leaves in the bushes were inspired by Craft Roulette Episode 13 project from Patty Beck. Thanks, Patty, for the idea!

My follow up three cards for this blog were fab FUNN to make. I used water color pencils to color, various white card stock, stitched rectangle die from Close To My Heart, and a 1.0 Micron pen.
1. Stack-o-gnomes
2. Michigan gnome family portrait (thanks, Judy, for the Michigan info during the show)
3. What time is it? 2 toadstools passed (is that the right passed?) a gnome
I bet these 3 card end up on a Shout Out Wednesday, how about you?
