Gnome for Christmas and Polar Bear

It's officially 6 months until Christmas! I suspect it will be very different this year, but that's even more reason to make and send more cards!

I love this stamp set! You can mix and match the elements to make the gnome with various expressions and accessories.  
Stamps: Apple Blossom 'Christmas Gnomes'
Dies: SSS 'Birch Tree Window'
Cutplorations 'Stiched Rectangle'
PP: Kaisercraft

I'm sharing at the following challenges:-

Faux Stitching for me

My next card is using a new(ish) stamp which I thought would be great for Masculine cards.

I combined the Polar Bear stamp with the Penny Black mountains.

****All Creatures Great and Small****

Stamps: Lesia Zghada Stamps 'Polar Bear'; Penny Black 'Season's Marvel'; Inspired by Stamping (sentiment)
