I decided to do things a little different this year by entering a number of challenges. My first entry is for a "New Beginning" theme on Tag Tuesday. This tag emphasizes the Beginning with a background that is vast, void of shape. I took watercolors and combined the blue that would be the sky, the green and brown that would become the earth. Time began at creation The clocks in the background were made with a glittery gold paste. The words were made with my label maker and the girl is a sticker.

My Snow Queen is dancing about the trees to wish you a Merry Christmas.
Below are my first Christmas tags I made two since they are not you conventional tag. These tags are made with slide shapes and they are made to use as an embellishment on a card.

"Jingle All the Way" is the Customer Challenge this month. Below are a few samples for this month. I hope my sample will encourage to get started on your Christmas cards and to use some digital images from Gecko Galz. There are so many Christmas images to choose from.

Here are my Gecko Galz samples for October. The paper as well as the focal image in the card below are both from Gecko Galz. As you can tell, I do not do the typical Halloween with ghosts, skeletons. and graveyards.
The pumpkin background on this card is from my stash.

Putting on the Glitz is what the Gecko Galz Team is doing this month. Sometimes imperfection is better than perfect. For instance, the background on the first card was printed on my printer and I noticed that I am beginning to run out of ink. That is what made the yellow lines in the background. I love those lines for they worked perfectly behind my image. You probably would not have noticed if I had not said something about it.
Doing some wallpapering? Save a little to use on cards. That is what I did below.

Most of the summer vacations we have taken have been to the beach. This has been my influence for my Gecko Galz samples this month.
A tag with chalk background and loaded with Gecko Galz images
The two cards are made with a SPARK by Carolyn Dube SPARKS are backgrounds she makes available to encourage and inspire creativity. I use this one two different ways.

One of the challenges on Gecko Galz this month is Summer. I have used a number of images on the following card that are from Gecko Galz. The main image is theirs along with the seashell. Behind the main image I used some water-designed paper. The sentiment is from my stash.
I always consider poka dots a part of spring and summer. I used them as a background for my lady. The butterfly and heart embellishment are from my stash and the sentiment is a stamp.

This month I added some butterflies to some tags I am putting in an album I am making. The book is almost finished with the exception of some decorations on the cover. Here a peek at the tags and part of the book. It has a lot of interactive parts and has taken up a lot of my time lately.

This month the challenge for Gecko Galz is "Asian Beauties". Below are some samples using the lovely Asian images and some beautiful backgrounds. If you go through my blog you will notice that a number of my cards are sick cards or sympathy, because I make many to send to my church congregation.
Don't you just love the background on this card. It is one of many in a paper pack found on the Gecko Galz Etsy site.
Below is a tag with two additional Asian beauties from Gecko Galz.
