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.

In the Spotlight Again at Gecko Galz

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 Begins

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.
