Final Gecko Galz post

It's with much sadness that I am posting my final Gecko Galz post. This design team has been wonderful to be on - from the great images to my very inspiring team members! I have been a Gecko Galz dt member for 4.5 years. Due to family obligations I am stepping down from all my design teams at this time.

Now for my final GG projects - 1 card and 5 tags.
First up are three tags featuring images from December's "Greek to Me" collage sheets.

Next is my Christmas tag. I used a lovely image from December's "Snow Maidens" collage sheet.

I also made a tag using an image and papers from the December kit "Czarina".

The card I made also uses an image from the Czarina kit.

Below is your free Gecko digi - please enjoy!

Happy Holidays!!

Wings at Christmas

Hi! I am sharing a new theme at Make My Monday this week - "Wings at Christmas". I made a card using a stamp by Dare 2 Be Artzy. I colored the image with chalks and added copper Stickles around the halo.
Please join us here and link up a project of your own - we'd love to see what you create!!

White Christmas

Well, since I can't get the real thing - it's going to be in the 60's this weekend! - I chose "White Christmas" as the theme this week at Make My Monday. We hope you will join us with a project of your own.
I have always loved snow and winter in Ohio. Seems like we always had snow for Christmas when I was a child. That's why I put the words "Happy Memories" on my card. Have a wonderful week everyone!

Stamping without a stamp!

That's the theme for Make My Monday this week: stamp but don't use a stamp. Check out all the cool ideas from the design team!

I used the end of a bunch of celery. Adding some marker highlights made flowers! Then I drew on stems and leaves, added a bee sticker and a photo of spring brunch, plus a yummy breakfast casserole recipe.

We'd love to have you join us with your own projects.

November at Gecko Galz & a Free Digi

Creating with Gecko Galz images is always easy - that's because they are so lovely! This month I made Christmas thank you notecards using the November "Blue Christmas" kit. I kept them simple, with a white card base and the same blue cardstock as a background for the images (from Blue Christmas ephemera sheet #2 & Icons sheet #2).

My next project is a Sugar Plum Fairy card. I began with a purple cardstock base and Blue Christmas paper #6 for the background. The fairy is Icon #16 with Icon #15 behind her. The brown heart is from Autumn Harvest papers #10. The blue hearts are from the Winter Wonderland papers, "Winter Garden". Lastly, I added a Tim Holtz word sticker.

And this month's free digi stamp for you from Gecko Galz. Please enjoy!

Christmas cards

Today's post includes two Christmas cards that I've made. One is for Ooh La La and the other for Make My Monday.

This is for the "Let it Snow" challenge at Ooh La La Creations, which is my last post for the design team there. It's been great working with their wonderful products and fun challenges!

For the card above, I used a lovely image from the Passion For Fashion CD called "Victorian Winter". It was backed on two patterned papers, white cardstock and a green card base. Wooden snowflakes were added. Finally, I cut the words "Winter Greetings" from the Shawn Jenkins Collection CD, (under Sentiments & Tags).

At Make My Monday, our challenge this week is "Oh! Christmas Tree". My card uses a green die cut tree on a red card base. I added a piece of green patterned paper behind the tree, gems and the word peace from Jillibean Soup.

Happy Monday!

Ooh La La Creations has a new theme up on the blog: "Pearls & Lace". We hope you will join us by linking up a project of your own.

I made a collage to share, using an image from the Say it with Words CD, called "A Woman with Good Shoes".

The background paper is #11 (Say it with Words CD), which has the lovely butterflies on it. I then punched butterflies from Page Curl #5 and die cut a pink butterfly to add to the page. The smaller background papers are #60 (green checked) from Passion for Fashion and #'s 6 (brown dotted) & 15 (blue) from Yesterday's Memories. The pearls are gems I added to the pink ribbons around the waist and in the hair.

At Make My Monday this week, the theme is "Many Thanks". I used a pretty Gecko Galz image and added layers of blue on a brown card base. The sentiment is a Jillibean Soup sticker. Simple, but I just love blue and brown and am quite happy with the finished card.

We hope you will join us at Ooh La La and Make My Monday. Have a wonderful week!
