A tag and some candles

Morning Lovelies! I hope you wrapped up warm last night - I didn't make my class again - there was so much rain I just worried about flooding - so me and the girls did some Zumba infront of the telly! Not quite the same but it made me feel a little better! I'm supposed to be running this morning - I'll be having soggy feet again me thinks!!!!

two things to show you today - firstly a tag that will be going on Shaun's Christmas stocking - hope he likes it ....

I've used weathered wood Distress stain and tumbled glass distress ink on the background and stamped with adirondack denim blue. the snowflake is crafty emblies and the image is a digi from Crafty Sentiments designs.  The roses were from a candy I won from the lovely Nat at NG Cards - thanks hun xx

secondly I've got some more candles for my sale on Saturday:

Ooops - my middle picture is on its side - you get the idea!!!! The candles were stamped using the technique on tissue paper and melting with the heat gun - I did a link for a candle on Tuesday for a tutorial at split coast stampers. I think they've come out okay - just hope the public does too!!!!
