Results of a Busy Day

Happy Friday everyone, had a really lovely day with Lin yesterday a whole day spent in pleasant company and just crafting, I consider that perfect.   Lin was really eager to learn what I had been doing at the Crafters Companion Craftaganza and was especially keen to make the Candle and Box we made in Leanns Class, and the Cute Christmas Tree designed by my little Princess Claire for her Saturday Class. 


As it is Friday it is also time for Just Magnolia and Hanglar & stHanglar Challenge, this week it is the special monthly challenge sponsored by Simon Says Stamp with a generous $25 voucher, and hosted by my very good friend the lovely Donalda. 

Can you believe  just a charm and a few pearls as embellishments on this card, had to work hard and sit on my hands to stop myself adding more but I like the result.   The papers are Maja design Old Fashioned Christmas and along with the Die-Namics Dainty Doily are available from Dies to Die For.   The Christmas Release Tilda with Candy Cone, and the Magnolia Snowflakes    are available from Crafts U Love.  I have stamped The Snowflakes and sentiments with White Ink onto Kraft Paper, and used a Martha Stewart  Die for the glittered border.

I have used the sketch from this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge for the layout, great sketch Dawny dear xxx


Copics Used:
Flesh: E11, E21, E000. Hair E35, E33, E30, Dress: E71, E70, E40, Sweets, Ribbons & Shoes: R29, R17, R05, R02.

I thought you might like to see the Candle & Box and the sweet Christmas Tree, I made Yesterday so here are a couple of Piccies.


The Wreath on the candle was stamped with a selection of  Tapestry Stamps from Card-io, I have added some flat backed gems to the wreath after heating.  The Box has been created using Crafters Companion’s Ultimate Pro, I used two co-ordinating colours from the Rose Red Co-Ordinations Card pack, then run the lightest red through the Cuttlebug in a Darice Embossing Folder, then sanded it with a Sand It Gadget Tool, love the effect you get with the Co-ordinations.


Here is the back of the candle.

and finally here is the little Christmas Tree that is awaiting decoration


Thanks for staying with me through this long post.

Have a great Day
Hugs Jacs xxxx
