Bitten By The Bug 2....Gnome

I was really excited when I saw that Theresa picked the Gnome on Freshly Picked for our weekly Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge. I have been wanting to use this Gnome for so long and have never gotten around to it. To me when I think Gnome I think the Chicago Cubs Gnome that is in constant site in our house. He moves around but is always somehow there. Last summer he lived on the kitchen table for 3 months for good luck--unfortunately, he did not do his job and got moved to another location, LOL! I decided to make a Father's Day card for my dad with the cut. Please remember to go back to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out all the ways our Design Team interpreted this Gnome and then play along with us!
Nothing fancy, but it was really fun to make!
