Gecko Galz Christmas Release # 4

This is one of my favorites, I think because I felt so confident choosing the mix of papers.  You may notice when I comment on your blogs I frequently comment on the paper selection, as I think it really does make the card and also because I really struggle with that aspect of it.  With Gecko Galz Grandma's House Paper Collection  it was so easy to mix papers and patterns, the work was already done for me.  The great coordinating image is from the Christmas Chic collection.  The precisely cut solid frames were done with my Perfect Layers square and rulers using the 1/16th measurement.
I want to take this opportunity to remind you that Gecko Gals is having their 2nd Annual Blog Hop on 10/26/2012 running through 10/28/2012.  For this 3 day event they are offering free goodies at every blog and at the end of the hop there will be a special phrase that you will have collected along the way that will give you an opportunity to win the amazing prize of all prizes!  1 year of free collage sets... that is 5 free sets each month, whoo hoo, how cool is that!  Kick off will start at the Gecko Galz blog on 10/26/2012, you can find the link at the top of my sidebar on the right.  Good luck to all of us!  Thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  4. Thanks so much for your visit to ME too!!! I've missed you.

    I totally agree, my sister says too - the paper can really MAKE the card. I wish there were "touch" on the internet because some papers have such nice textures which we can't fully appreciate on the screen.

    Hope you have a super weekend,
