Snow and more snow!

It's been very snowy and very cold here. The birds are out at the feeders, especially the cardinals. They look so pretty against the white snow. With all this bad weather I've gotten quite a bit of crafting done.

We have a new theme at Tag Tuesday called "Anything Goes". I sprayed a tag with inks and then added strips of texture paper & cardboard. Final touches include a postage stamp, pen nib and "at" symbol.

I also created two tags for an upcoming theme and have been working on putting the final touches on my December Daily. It's actually done, but I keep thinking of more things I want to add!!

Have a wonderful week!

Welcome 2018

Hello and Happy New Year to all!!! I'm hoping for a year filled with lots of hygge (my OLW for 2018). I am also going to work on one word a month and in January it's create. Create art, more time with family, healthier meals, etc.

For Tag Tuesday our theme for the next two weeks is "New Beginnings". My tag is simply a HELLO to the new year and to a new lifestyle.

So here's to a new year, new beginnings and (hopefully) a new and better lifestyle - Welcome 2018!

Anything Goes... include some Lime Green

The new theme is posted at Tag Tuesday. Your tag may be anything you want, but make sure to include some lime green color.

My tag was covered with Basic Grey's "Lime Rickey" paper and then I stapled on a strip of lime green trim. A bit of patterned paper under the black car, the red car on top of the trim and the yellow taxi at the bottom. I've had these pedal car stickers in my stash forever!!

More Music

Here is another tag for Tag Tuesday's music theme. The tag is covered with scrapbook paper and I've added a heart cut with a Spellbinder die (Gecko Galz paper). The little boy is from Tim Holtz and his wings are German scrap.

Gecko Galz Cards

Hi, today I am sharing two Christmas cards I made for Gecko Galz. Both cards use beautiful GG images and papers.

The first card features a Santa Claus image from the Santa Clause Lane collage set. I die cut Santa in an oval shape and then die cut the next size oval from the Merry and Bright paper pack to put behind him. The background paper is "Istanbul" from the Great Adventure paper pack. The corners were punched with a Martha Stewart corner punch. The word Joy was die cut and all were layered onto a piece of red cardstock on a white card base. The doilies and flower are from my stash.

The second card features an image from the Christmas Dreams collage sheet. I die cut the image and two background pieces (from blue cardstock) and layered them to a white card base. Snowflakes were punched from Gecko Galz papers, a branch was die cut in white, the word strip and flowers from my stash were all added to the card.

Check out the Gecko Galz Etsy shop for these and many other wonderful Christmas items.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Music

Can you believe that 2 weeks have flown by? It's time for a new theme at Tag Tuesday. This time it was chosen by Michele and is "Music". I'm sharing my first tag below.

One of my favorite Disney songs is "When You Wish Upon a Star". I used a piece of artist paper from Stampington and added a die cut moon, little girl from Tim Holtz, gold vellum star and a sticker from my stash that happened to have the song title words. I also stamped on some music notes at the bottom and tied a ribbon at the top.

Thanks for stopping by today! We'd love it if you would join us at Tag Tuesday and link up a music tag.
