It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and a free stamp

I can't seem to get that song out of my head!  I am one of "those" who does not like to have Christmas things up before Thanksgiving.  Are you?  I read something on Facebook last week that said something about enjoying my holidays one at a time.  That's me!  So now that Thanksgiving is over, I am ready for Christmas!

Our local radio station plays Christmas songs for the whole month.  I love that.  However, this morning I had just a limited amount of time in the car and this was the song I heard.  Now it is playing over and over in my head!

I thought I would share a few things from Gecko Galz with you very quickly.  These are 2 of the projects I made with the December release.

I fell in love with this lantern image this month.  I have made several tags and cards with it but this one is by far my favorite.  The image is pop dotted onto a kraft tag that I splattered with white paint.  I punched the greenery from different scraps of green card stock I had laying around, tipped them in white to look snowy, and then stacked then under the lantern.  The original image had the greenery but I wanted a 3D affect.  I made the tiny pinecones as well.  It is hard to see since I did not get the best picture, but the lantern light is glittery as well (thanks to some Faber Castell glass bead glitter gel).  This may end up being a version of my actual Christmas cards that I send to family!

Some of the images were called Blue Christmas and as you can guess they were all blue.  I love the santa image and decided to fussy cut the snowflake out.  It has glass bead glitter gel on the outer edges.  I used the papers, the christmas list image and then the santa to make this quick card to put in some baskets I made.  It is perfect with the silver ribbon I tied the baskets with.  Can't show you the finished basket or the recipients would know who it came from (it's a surprise).

Want something free?  Well, as a thank you for stopping by :
A free Gecko Galz stamp!
