Gruffy Little Gnome!

I won a challenge at Meljen's Designs blog recently and part of my prize was this little guy, isn't he fab? This will be going on top of the box of fudge that I always make my father-in-law at Christmas. It's a bit too early to make it as yet; even if it would last that long because of the ingredients, we'd simply eat it before the big day :P I make him fudge, and my mother-in-law truffles, and both accuse the other of nicking "their" sweets, so she'll get a more girly one with a similar sentiment.
These are the challenges I made it for:
365 Cards - Day 257 warm and cozy
Inspiration Avenue - community and food. I don't really interact with people much outside my family, so they're my community :)
Pear Tree Designs - followed the sketch
Color Dare - soft suede, night of navy and pear pizzazz
Cooking It Up with Katie - feature food or drink, use a tag and add a sentiment
Meljen's Designs - food
Pixie Dust Studios - all about the men or boys in our lives
Stamp Something - use a digi
Challenge Up Your Life - blue and green
