Today I am showing some pieces made for various challenges. The first card is also another DT piece for Gecko Galz using some of the new January papers. I love the cold and frosty look of this image. The image and papers have been matted and fixed to a white 6" square easel card. I added some matching ribbons and made the stopper out of scraps of the matting paper. I am linking to Artful times, where the ladies want to see blue this time, and to Simon's Monday Challenge - blues
Materials used: white cardstock, blue leaf image from GG Winter Garden 2 collage sheet, background paper from BG Jewel it 2 sheet, blue cardstock and mirri board, ribbons, blue heart from stash.
My second piece is an altered notebook. I covered it with DP from Anna Griffin, and used an image from the Gecko Galz Shabby Chic Garden 2 collage sheet. I matted it onto some bronze mirri board. The book mark has been made from the same image printed in a smaller size, and fixed to the notebook with a white ribbon. This shows how versatile the images are. This month is a 2 for 1 offer at the GG web site, and a great challenge with tempting prizes, so hop over and have a look!

After a lot of rain yesterday, the weather cleared just before it got dark, and showed some blue sky - but it was the quiet phase before the storm, as we were later treated to heavenly fireworks with thunder and lightning and torrential rain. In some places hail stones fell, and a lot of damage was down when the wind ripped roofs off houses and uprooted trees. I know there were awful storms in England, too. Here the weather is too mild for the time of year, and in parts of the States and Canada it is bitter, bitter cold - crazy climate!
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
