STRAWBERRY PATCH

December Customer Challenge

We are doing our "Tag You're It" for the month of December and so our customer challenge is a tag also. One of my favorite thing besides making all my greeting cards is now I make all my gift tags. I was always so frustrated trying to find tags that match my wrapping paper so it makes sense for me to make them instead of buying them. The image I used was from one of our new collage sheets called Tiny Christmas Angels, I fell in love with this little angel with the rabbit. My tag was cut from craft paper and the backround paper is white that I embossed with a snowflake folder. I inked the edge of the tag and backround paper and also lightly across the snowflakes with brown ink and put little blue rhinestones in the middle of the snowflakes. I used a oval scallop punch to cut out my image and around the edges I used crystal stickles. Last but not least, I used a silver ribbon on my tag. Hope you like it !!!!

Gecko Galz November Customer Challenge Time

Our theme for the month is "Deck the Halls" ! Christmas is one of my favorite creative times. Here is my sample:



I alway send out around 50 cards at Christmas time so my cards are usually the clean and simple side. I alway make my card A2 size (which is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches - for anyone who is new to card making). The image is from Gecko Galz "Christmas Carol" November 2014.  Love the lil guy in the middle of the wreath !

I am so loving the fact that I now live in a place where you can see the changes of seasons.......so much color in Colorado. Not much in my yard.......alittle of my trees are changing - guess my trees are late changers !!!! Which takes us to the theme for October "Fall into Autumn". Here is my sample for the challenge:
                                                         
                                                         

Just a simple cards with one of my favorite things "BIRDS" and the colors of fall ! The card front is a nice orange cardstock that I embossed with a swiss dot. The image I printed on a light orange cardstock which made it alittle more orangey !

No free stamp this month because we are having our annual Blog Hop where you can get alot of free collage sheets so come back and join us Oct. 27-31st
