Gecko Galz is having Birds as the theme for March. Here is a couple of samples
This is a set of three vintage bird tags. I have a tutorial on YouTube showing how these were made. My brand is Cheerful Greetings.
This is a collage card.

Moonlight and Magic is the theme for February's Customer Challenge. My sample has a distance moon on which I placed a Geck Galz image. I decreased her size so she would fit on the moon and used butterfly wings as her angel wings. The background is a collage of papers.
I have just started putting tutorials on YouTube and I would love for all my visitors to this blog to find them and then subscribe. This is my first attempt at this so please bear with me as I am learning and my first videos are not the best.
You can find my videos here. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWTuW-zPbQ2HZ1Px_cu2r3w
Also please offer suggestions on how I can improve. Just send them to firstname.lastname@example.org There are 4 videos in all. PLEASE SUBSCRIBE!

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.

The Customer Challenge this month is "Snow Queen" Below is one of my samples as I will also be posting again on the 20th of the month.
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.

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.
