Rock Around The Christmas Tree

I finally have had time to participate 
in my favorite care challenge with the belles at

They have asked us to make something with a tree on it.
Well, because I was feeling sad
that I hadn't played along yet this year,
I made two, count em, two cards:

It's nice to be back in the swing of things!

(I hope I made these in time, lol)

Thanks for coming by.
And why you you check it out and get a start on
next year's Christmas cards?

I have two grandkids.
I did the LO of Hailey Ann, my lovely little granddaughter, and then thought, hmmm,
I should do one of Logan too.
It's only fair.

My frame is a chaotic collection of stuff and toys.
Just sayin....

for this week at Take A Word

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a funny day.

I'm scared of

a number of things.But nothing more than
It's a Phobia, really.A major one.
In fact, when I saw the theme for the week at
I decided I simply could not play along.
So sad.
I argued with myself at great length.
Even tried to do a piece with something else.
But the fact is,
I am scared of SPIDERS.
Very, Very.
And art is about honesty, if nothing else, right?
So here you go.

I did it.

Have a nice day.
And I will try to visit your samples, but I waen you,
if you have a spider on yours,
we will no longer be friends.

That's the best I can do.  :-)

January Loveliness at Gecko Galz

Both of my samples using the new products are digital.
Easy Peasy to do, as long as you have some kind of photo-editing software.
I use Photoshop Elements 13,
and to be honest, 
I taught myself how to use it.
And if I can do that, ANYONE can do that!

My first sample uses an image from the Jewel It Romance Collage Sheet.
The Papers I used were from the new High Society Paper Pak.

For the next sample I used an image from the Dreams of Spring Collage Set.
I placed the image over white cardstock, and erased parts, to allow the white to show through.
I overlayed a digital stamp from the Spring Gems Stamp Set and changed the blending mode to Multiply.
Adding a new layer, I coloured parts of the face with a brush, and added a layer of glitter to the butterfly.
I also coloured the eyes.
I added turquoise brush work around the edges and changed it to a bevel, then placed it all on black cardstock.  
I added white brushwork over the edges to soften it.

All of the new products that I used are 
available in the 

Now for something totally fun,
I have a free digital stamp for you!
And just because it's digital, doesn't mean you need to use it digitally!
No sirree, you can
print it out and colour it and have all sorts of fun with it!
Just right-click on the image and save it.
I made a little something with it...

using Gecko Galz papers and images.
What do you think?

Don't forget about our current 
All That Glitters

Have you made something sparkly yet!
Everything is better with glitter, right?
And you have until the end of the month to enter!

I look forward to seeing what you create with these wonderful new Gecko Galz products.
And thanks for coming by,
your visit makes me very happy!!
