Sending Gnome Sunshine Using Conie Fong Sunflower Gnome

Hello Friends!  I hope everyone is doing well.  It has been a crazy year so far.  I keep hoping things will improve for everyone and that we will be safe from COVID-19; but the entire world is in trouble; especially the USA.  Please wear a mask, social distance and stay safe.  Many people are dying, including all ages and we must do everything we can to slow this horrible virus until they can make a vaccine for it.  

Now, on to more fun things.  I didn't like Gnomes when they first came out.  I know, I can't believe it either.  I don't like things without eyes showing and a mouth preferred.  LOL!  Conie Fong "Sunflower Gnome" is so adorable and it has eyes, nose and a mouth.  Yay!  

I am also in love with the new Slimline cards and having fun creating with them as well.  I thought I had all the dies I needed; and then they came out with dies for the slimline.  I have several now; so I think I am good on those too.  I am still waiting on my last order from Gina Marie Designs.  She has some fabulous buys on her slimline; a lot less expensive than what I paid for other companies; so be sure to check her out.  I used her Stitched Scallop slimline dies on the inside of this card.  

Available in JPG and PNG (above link is PNG.  I purchase PNG images when they are available; as you can layer them on Microsoft Word, using the sentiment and other images with them as I did on this card.   
The sun is freebie for limited time on Conie Fong Facebook group.
