Another Award and Something Different!!

Good evening....sorry I haven't posted earlier but have been catching up on my sleep after Lewis' sleepover last night....they were still awake at 3.30 am!!! Good job we didn't have anything planned for today....I've learned my lesson from the last time he had a sleepover!!
I had some nice news this afternoon....I've received the Arte Y Pico Award again!! Wow, five times now!! This time it was from Jilli. Thank you so much Jilli, it really is appreciated and I am always very grateful and surprised by people who nominate me.


Well, when I finally awoke from my little nap, decided to do something quick and new for me which I've seen on a couple of blogs. This is the front view.......





and this is the back view......

I was so surprised at how easy these candles are to make and how quick!! I've used Elzybells stamps and the main image has been coloured with Brushables. They were stamped with Stazon onto tissue paper and then "fixed" to a plain candle by covering with greaseproof paper and heating with my heat gun. How simple is that?!!!

This is lovely, I had a go at this too a while back after seeing a tutorial on stamping caz's blog, but I found that the candle melted a little, did you have any problems? Its beautiful!

Great candle Jo! Aren't they fun to make. It's always a hit with my club girls too. Love that image and the sentiment, very cute. :)

Hope you got more sleep last night than the night before. :)

Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.







Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.
