I Said It Once I'll Say it Again...

...I love challenges!  They get the creative juices flowing and move me in a direction I wouldn't normally take.  This sketch challenge, by the way of all the types of challenges sketch challenges are my favorite, made my think to pull out my stamp set called Gnome Sweet Gnome.  This style stamp set is a total departure for my usual vintage, shabby, grungy style, but I like it.  I need to do more to open my horizons.  The greeting comes from a set designed to complement the gnome set and it's called Gnomenclature (I love a good pun).  The sketch has been designed by LeAnne over at the Paper Players.  I think you should all join along and add to the sketch.
