Pile It On - Fairy Tales, Fantasy and Daydreams

Are you ready for the Pile It On challenge, well you better be cause it's here.  How about this fun theme "Fairy Tales, Fantasy and Daydreams".  There's an awful lot of images that will fit this theme so finish your web browsing then go get busy pulling out your supplies.  This week we're sponsored by Stamp Fairy, the winner of the challenge will receive a $10 gift certificate to spend in the Stamp Fairy store.  I'm sure you'll have a fun time with that. 

For my card I'm using a "Garden Goblin" and Close to My Hearts "Route 66" paper because whenever I see a creature that looks like this I think about a story I saw on TV many years ago.  It was about a family who had a gnome like this on their front lawn and it was stolen.  Over the next couple months they received touristy pictures of the gnome from all over the country.   One day the gnome was home again.  They never found out who did it.

don't forget the inside
Here's the deets:
stamp - Stamp Fairy "Garden Goblins"
ink - hp printer
paper - Close to My Heart "Route 66" cs and dp
miscellaneous - copics, mini brads, linen twine, mushroom charm, My Favorite Things "Dainty Dots" die-namic, machine stitching
