Gnome Way! You Are 70?

Happy Saturday!
Don't you just love gnomes? I do.  I actually purchased Freshly Picked just for the gnomes! I think they are adorable.

I needed a card for my Daddy's 70th birthday and I remembered I had pinned one with a gnome on it because it was so darned cute! You can see it HERE.  Thank you Mel!
Since all the pieces were very small and not a lot of paper was needed, I just used scrap papers from my scrap bin.  Eventually I had created Papa Gnome!
I used my little alphabet stamps to spell out the "gnome way!"  I think I paid a $1 for that stamp set at Michael's many years ago and it seems like I use them quite a bit. I love the font.
For the little flag that reads "you are 70?" I printed that off on to the kraft paper using my Printmaster program and my printer.  That little trick I leaned so very long ago certainly comes in handy almost every time I create a card!
My Daddy got a kick out of the pun on words and I was happy it made him smile on his birthday.
