Fables & Fairytales

We have a fab challenge this week at Crafty Creations set by the lovely Deena & here is what she has to say

Hi everyone! We are into November already...can you believe it? I can't!! I just can't face the reality of the cold winter months ahead (hey, I'm in Canada, it gets darn cold up here)!!

So, I thought it might be fun to indulge in a little fantasy... a suspension of reality of sorts, by playing our FABLES AND FAIRY TALES challenge! By the way, the best thing about the cold weather is having a good excuse to stay in and CRAFT!! Do you have a favorite fairy tale or fable that comes to mind from your childhood? Or from reading to your own children? Indulge yourselves in some fantasy play and create a whimsical card that warms your heart!

We have a fabulous sponsor back with us this week...MELJEN'S DESIGNS!!!

MelJen's Designs will be offering the winner of this week's challenge a choice of 4 images from these incredible images found here.

Here is my card for this weeks challenge.

I've chosen a cute image from Meljens which is Gruffy Little Gnome who reminded me of Grumpy from Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs hence the sentiment!!

Now I think I've boobed when I've coloured him in & given him seven chins lol!! instead of a high neck sweater but never mind, I like it!!

The image is coloured with copics. The cardstock & paper is Stampin Up. I've made a little pin wheel from a scrap of SU paper & the ribbon & pearls are from my stash.

The rest of the DT have some fab projects for your inspiration so pop aross & have a look & hopfully you'll join us this week.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges
