Large Candle Jar & Sneak Peek

Let Your Light Shine Through


Papertake - Christmas Birthdays
Simon Says - Silver/Blue/White
Paperplay (50) - Anything But A Card
Allsorts (83) - Anything Goes
C.E.S. (17) - Anything Goes

I don't know about you, but I think it is quite unfair to do a birthday card or gift with Christmas images for anyone who has a birthday in or around Christmas. That is why I have not used Christmas images for this gift I made for a friend who recently had her birthday. Not only that, but it means she can display it all year round.

I have used the gorgeous new fairys that will be released by LOTV on 11th January. As soon as I saw them I knew how I wanted to colour them using my Promarkers and Glamour Dust so this was the ideal opportunity to use them. I cut the first image with a label Nestie and then 3D'd another image on top using foam pads. The sentiment is also one of the new releases and I thought it was ideal for a candle. The silver leaves are punched and the paper flowers have pearl centres. On the lid I cut a silver scalloped circle with blue gingham paper on. Onto this I attached a layered up large white flower with silver leaves and a white pearl centre. A bit of ribbon around the neck finished it off. I must admit that I didn't want to part with it once it was done but my friend loves it, so I will just have to do another one just for me. Hope you like it as much as I do, thanks for looking.

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response this weekend.

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time.
