Gnome Sweet Gnome - the non-swap card

I sat down in my Stamp Room yesterday afternoon with the intention of creating a template for my Leadership 2012 swap card.  I had good intentions, really good.  However, one thing led to another and before I knew it I was paper piecing like a maniac, sponging with multiple inks, and highlighting with my gel pen. 
So although I think this card is ADORABLE, it is sooooooo not a good choice for a swap!  Considering this one card took me over an hour to create, it is not the prime candidate for a mass production operation.

So back to the drawing board I go.  I will not get carried away I will not get carried away I will not get carried away I will not get carried away I will not get carried away......

Happy Stampin'
