Candlelight and Grammy

Hi ya friends,
I surely enjoyed having Friday off. I did a WHOLE LOT---> of nuthin' !!! ahhh, sometimes you just have to have those days :) but Saturday, I went with my grammy to a Stamp in the Hand Stamp Convention. We had fun & definitely helped boost the economy! Well, I bought stuff & grammy bought me more stuff :) Grammys are the best :) :) :) So many new fun toys!
Today, I have one I made with one of the sets I picked up from Heartfelt Creations.
Here it is:
 This is the Holiday Poinsettia Candle set. I think it's really lovely :) I stamped it on Cranberry Crisp cs (yes, I'm finally letting go of my hoarding ways- cuz you SU peeps know how old that cs is!) I heat embossed it on cream cs, cranberry crisp cs, cut them out, & popped up the poinsettia with foam tape.
Here's a closer peek:
 To give it that melted candle wax look, I smeared some Viva Pen over it. (See, there's more to do with that little guy than just pearls ;) and the flickering flame was colored with Copics & got a bit of Stickles. The holly leaves also were colored with Copics. The pattern paper is MME Lost& Found Christmas- so luuuv it :)

I'm so happy to get started on my Christmas cards. I know some of you start in July, but I just can't. My mind is on BBQ & watermelon! My blog pal, Kathy C, does 1 Magnolia Christmas cards per month. That would be great for me, but I haven't gotten it together like that. Buuuut, I did get to create this card using Kathy's fab sketch for Tuesday Morning Sketches:
Woo hoo! Great job on the sketch, Kathy! It was great fun to work with :)

I'm also playing along with:
Christmas Card Challenges: Holly or Wreath
Paper Crafting Journey: Embossing
Papertake Weekly: Christmas
Tuesday Morning Sketches: Sketch #119

Thanks for peeking today!
Wishing you lovely crafternoons :)
