Season's Greetings

I love this little gnome from Simon Says Stamp. I have two of them but this little chap is my favourite. I cut him from Hessian, which I had backed with some double sided adhesive sheet. This helps to keep all the fibres together once they are die-cut and makes sticking onto the card a breeze. The sentiment is also from SSS and I added a little interest to the blue base sheet by stamping with an Impression Obsession wooden plank stamp using Versamark. 
The sketch is from Fab Friday
and I used the colours from 52CCT
Merry Little Christmas - Anything Goes
I chose the sentiment as I often associate gnomes with a silly little gizmo which comes out with the decorations each Christmas and is placed strategically in the downstairs loo.  It is a little gnome which is fixed onto a scissor like action, so that he pops up when the button is pressed and calls out "Season's Greetings". Guests often return from a visit to the loo with a big smile on their faces!
Actually it reminds me of a pub we used to go to years ago where in the ladies loo there was a picture of a Scotsman, complete with kilt, which was obviously hinged and liftable! It was quite a temptation for the ladies to lift the kilt to have a peek, but when they did, a buzzer sounded in the bar, so upon emerging from the ladies room there would be knowing grins all round thinking... we know what you did!
