Hi to all! My creation for today is a very long time coming...I've wanted to make one of these tea light candle cards but sadly not had extra time to work out how to make it...well after browsing several blogs I measured something that resembles it. Paper is a scrap from last years d/load from Martine, I really enjoyed using this fab Simply Sassy stamp 'Bookclub' from Sugar Nellie I won from their blog hop (many many thanks!), just fab as I am always looking for easy ideas to create and send to Post Pals (however this set I'll keep to hand give and will definitely make more Bookmarks to give out), the ribbon is recycled from a posh gift bag, blue bow I found in my stash, thin acetate used for tea light bit, fern is a punch and flowers are Marianne Creatable dies. Image coloured with Promarkers.






Lots of challenges entered...many are 'anything goes' such as, Paperplaytime, Party time Tuesdays, I Love Promarkers, My Mums Craft shop, Crafts & Me, Rainbow Ladys, Simon says and Secret Crafter. Bunny Zoes 2nd entry 'fancy folds', Crafty Sentiments 'bookmarks', Ladybug Crafts 'bingo board...ribbon, flowers, punches/dies', Promarker 3rd entry 'celebrations', Inky Impressions 'something new 'stamp', Paper Shelter 'tie a bow' and last but not at all least followed the Sugar Bowl sketch but didn't use the option . Thanks for visiting, enjoy the celebrations into the New Year and be safe, until 2012, bye!
