1 Oct 2008 stamping!

Oops! I lied a bit.....there is some stamping on this project but only on the tag!!

Another Cornish Heritage Farms free on-line class was last night and after our guests went home, I got to work on my project, which was a Thomas Kincaid candle! This link is to the whole group of on-line classes, and you have to register in order to view the actual class......but it's free too, so it's all good!!

All the Cornish Heritage Farms on line classes produce su
ch amazing projects and they are not difficult to do, maybe I'm just lucky that hubby golfs most Tuesdays (except last night - dang it) and doesn't get home until late, so I have the opportunity to spend the night on the computer!!

My candle turned out so pretty and it is something that I would not hesitate to take to someone's house as a hostess gift!

Because you know how sometimes you make things and you think ..... uhmmmm........ that's not looking good.......crap......

Without any further it is!!

And to quote Jan Tink -
Isn't this GOJUS?!?!?! She has an amazing blog btw, with so many glorious projects and amazing cards.....and she makes me laugh whenever I read it!!

I took the picture last night so the soft romantic glow of my kitchen could show through to my creation.....whatever....

I used Kraft paper with Thomas Kincaid Masculine series paper wrapped around and then the
small vignette images were spaced around the candle.

A couple of different sizes of May Arts ribbon were added around the top of the candle.

I cut out a little tag from the Tiny Tags Cuttlebug die and I stamped "forever radiant"
- a wee bit of a pun...! ....from the CHF Everyday Petites set and tied it on with some hemp cord.

Have a great day! I have some meetings with all of Holly's workers today.......ugh........that always drains me a wee bit (understatement)........sometimes a bit of a power struggle..........I detest losing control.......there I said it.........pthththt!
