Desinger Candles...

Hello everyone.
     I am dropping this in real quick as I am uber tired and I still wanted to share a couple more of my Christmas projects.  This week has been a super busy one for me, so as you can imagine that means no down time to be crafty.  Gggrrr...  I like my crafty time it keeps me from being a tired, cranky grumper.  :O)  lol....
     At any rate, I did manage to get this little votive candle made for a friend of mine.  She LOVES snowmen and when I was able to pick up this adorable stamp from The Greeting Farm last month (it is an older set and was on sale!) I knew right away what and who I wanted to use it for.  With this technique you can use tissue paper, but as I wanted the colors to stand out a little brighter I used some of my vellum instead and it worked out just great. 
     Ok  guys, I am heading to bed.   I am wishing that tomorrow is a quick, but fun day at work.  I am so ready to get to my vacation with my family.   After tomorrow I only have Saturday and part of Monday to go. Wish me luck that I remain standing.  lmbo... Jerry and the M&Ms all have colds starting up, so it just might be an interesting vacation.  I don't care even if we all sit around in our PJs and a box of Kleenex, as long as we do it together. 
     Have a great day and I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G
