I chose to use this Lunagirl chickens image for my fall card this time. It is hard to tell, but I added raffia on top of them to give a third dimension to the card. Drop over to the Lunagirl site, pick out a fall image and enter the current challenge.

The matted circle has the head part of one of Gecko Galz lovely images. No other images are on the card as it is a sympathy card. The small beige square slips out of the strap and give three places for messages
This is a partial view of the inside of the card
This card has an unusual background. It is wrapping paper. I think it is perfect for this Gecko Galz image.
One of my Christmas projects is a puzzle made from one of the background images. Above is one of the corner pieces.

I am in the spotlight on Gecko Galz again today. Here are some cards I have made for the occasion.
On this tag I colored the image slightly with Copic Markers. I used one of the
Gecko Galz backgrounds and stamped a sprig over it. On top of that is a piece of leftover gold ribbon that I had cut from a bow.
Gecko Galz is having a blog hop at the end of October so make sure you come back.

A new challenge is beginning at Lunagirl. I began the month by making a tag. I love using text to my tags and cards so I ripped some small pieces from an old textbook. On top I put one of Lunagirl's great gothic images.

Lunagirl is having a Fairy and Mermaid Challenge. Here is a sample of one of her images. My background, which goes great with the image, is from Gecko Galz. They worked perfectly together.

September is "Tricks and Treats" at Gecko Galz. All the secary artwork comes out this month. I do not like to create anything with a Halloween, but I did make a couple for the theme. Below is the badge for this month so you can put it on your blog and a little info about the Customer Challenge.
The challenge runs from September 1-29 so there is plenty time to create and enter. There is only one rule, and that is you need to use at least ONE product from Gecko Galz. It can be one of the free products, stamps, collage images, or digital papers!! It is up to you!!
The winner will receive a $25 Gecko Galz shopping spree.
For this card I cut through the Gecko Galz background and made t he fog wrap around the image giving it a 3D look
The image on this card is really cute. I thought an orange background was appropriate for the occasion.
This is a page from an album I am making. It is made with 3 business-size envelopes for each page. A page holds 5 pockets in which you can put tags or other items of embellishment.
This is a tag that will go into one of the pockets on one of my album pages, but not necessarily on the page above. I am creating the pages and pockets as an idea comes to me.
Below is the freebie image sheet Gecko Galz is giving away to you. Grab it from my page if you like.
