Holiday greetings to all

 Hi All, today I am sharing my last official Gecko Gals Design Team card, but surely not the last Gecko Galz card, you know I love the images!  This year went by so fast, there are so many images I just did not have time to use.  For this card the supplies I used are as follows.
Image of the girl from Gecko Galz December Magic collage sheet
Image of baubles from Robin G Icons 2
Envelope liner image from Gecko Galz Graphical paper pack
Red card stock, green card stock and matte photo paper

I  superimposed the image of the ornaments on to the image of the girl, printed it on matte photo paper, glued this on to the green card stock.

I used my Perfect Ruler to make an 1/8" matte in green card stock around the image.  (Stop by the Perfect Rulers site, they have continued the special offer for a free cutting mat with a 20$ order through the end of this month, and I must say this is the best self healing mat I have ever had, I love it!)  and use

Use coupon code Dbove to receive a 10% discount at checkout.
I cut the red card base on my KNK Zing, using one of Monicas free files, then lined it with the green card stock.
I changed the color of the Gecko Galz Graphical paper in Word and then printed it onto copy paper.

I also want to share with you I am now a Grandma, our daughter gave birth to a beautiful baby girl 3 weeks early,  Mom and baby are doing well and keeping Grandma quite busy, lol. 
This will be my last post of the year so I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year.  I thank you all for your continued support through your visits and comments.  
As always, thanks for looking.  ~Diane
