Each blog you visit will have another free Gecko Galz Collage sheet for you to grab, the one here is "CHRISTMAS TIME". 

Also make sure you collect all the “secret” words on each blog so at the end of the hop you can send in the phrase to enter our drawing for a wonderful treat.  So sit back, relax, take your time and enjoy the hop! We have FOUR amazing prizes up for grabs:

 Thank you for joining the hop and enjoy your free collage sheet and my samples.

I am making all of my Christmas gift tags from now on, the ones you buy at the stores are either to small to write anything on or I just don't like them. I made five of them for the hop !



I cut the tags using the Sizzix die
The paper I used for the tag fronts are from my Christmas scrap draw.
I inked everything with brown ink.
Matching bows glued to the top and red and white twine for the hanger.


I also made one card.


White cardstock for card base.
Red cardstock for card front that I used a spellbinders
embossing folder.
White doily behind the image with red and green stickle dots on each side.

Here is the free collage sheet : Just click on it and save.

Love this little bird image fron the Birthday Bash 2 collage sheet, I matted it in blue.
The card base is white cardstock.
Card front is pink cardstock that I used a music embossing folder.
The ribbon is blue sheer that I had in my ribbon stash.



October Customer Challenge

Not quite sure why the inside of the card looks orange, it is pink.
The card base is pink construction paper.
The card front is from my paper stash.
The image  is from Gecko Galz Birthday Bash One and matted in black
The lace is some stickers from Dollar Store
The inside sentiment is also from Birthday Bash One.
Everything is inked with brown ink.

About Me

My photo
Born in Illinois, moved to California when I was nine. Finished high school and some college. Got married and moved to Nebraska with hubby because he joined the Air Force. Then spent some time in Alaska before moving back to California. I lived in Californa until 2004 when my husband decided to move us to Texas. I still have a husband (yes-I still have him even though he moved me to Texas), two daughters, three cats (and two outside cats that adopted us along with two racoons that we feed).
