Gilgo and Echo

Ya gotta love Thursdays!! And especially today because you get three projects to view! Yea! Make sure you scroll down for the SBS Preview post too. ;D

Today I'm showing off two new images I created for Little Miss Muffet Stamps... Gilgo and Echo! This first one is Echo the snake and I used the Tulip Garden from Make it Crafty plus a few gears and dragonfly chippies.

Since I was out of boy cards I thought Echo would be perfect for the task and even tried to incorporate flowers into the mix! So did it work, a successful boy card? My nephews will at least enjoy it. ;D

The other project I have here uses Gilgo the fish and I made a Christmas tag as you can never have too many of those. The paper is a punch out remnant from Martha Stewart paper and was the perfect size - no since throwing that stuff out, I say. ;D

I'd like to enter this project into the following challenges:

Update: I was the top pick at iCopic Lovers for this challenge!

The goldfish was colored to look like a koi and I added Snowflakes chippies and baker's twine with faux stitching around the edges. It should be fun to use on a pressie. Hope you like them and make sure you head on over to the Little Miss Muffet Stamps challenge blog to see the other inspirational projects!

I'd like to enter this project into the following challenges:
