Gecko Galz April Samples

So many great collage sheets for the next three months, hard to choose which to create with first. I picked one of my favorite subjects " Fairies " Here is my first sample:


I used one of the images from the Fairyland Stamps Set and used my copics to do alittle coloring. Love the fairies sitting on the dandylions with a sliver of moon behind them. 

My second sample:


Thought this image from the Fairyland Stamp Set would be great to make a belated birthday card.....what else is as slow as the mail - SNAIL MAIL !!!!! The inside reads  "Sorry I am late to say Happy Birthday" 

Here is the free stamp for this month:
Have fun and create !!!

Gecko Galz April Customer Challenge

Seems like we are flying thru the first part of this year, well to me it does but I guess that is because of the big change in our lives. We are moving (and this is the last time for me) - I am trying to get my samples for a few months ready to post since alot of my scrappy stuff will be packed away !!!!!!!!1

Our theme for April is "Roses Lace and Butterflies" and here is my sample:


Paper used for card front is from the Linen Closet Paper Pack. I used a strip of lace in the middle behind my image which is from the  In My Garden collage sheet - I copied a few of the image so I could fussy cut the roses and layer them. The watering can also came from the same collage sheet - there is a bird on the handle but I cut it off and replaced it with a butterfly. All the butterflies are cut from the Butterfly kisses collage sheets. Everything was inked around the edges with brown ink.
