August Gecko Galz Design Team Cards By the Shore

Today friends I am being featured on the Gecko Galz website as part of the Design Team. You can see the cards using all Gecko Galz images,  that I made for this month.  I stamped, stenciled and painted all the backgrounds, layered the images and then added embellishments. The final touch is always the sentiments.

The theme this month is "By the Shore" for the Gecko Galz customer challenge, if you participate you can even win prizes. Please come check us out. All my projects are mermaid related, so they can all be found by the shore. LOL. If you know just one thing about me, it is that I adore mermaids. When I was young, I wanted to grow up and be one, need I say more?
Thank you for visiting today.
Hope you have a beautiful week.
Take care,
Gerri
