I was so excited, my Dogwood Blossoms from Mark's Finest Papers arrived today and I had to break them out. I loved how quick and easy it was to colour this since I'm still not in a colouring mood yet. Getting there. The challenge on Friends of SpeedyTV is to try one of their tutorials. Since I've wanted to try candle decorating for a while, here you go. I did use one of our emergency candles since I wasn't sure how it would turn out. Talk about quick! I'd heard people raving how they make great Christmas presents and now I know why. My only mistake is I used my embossing heat gun rather than the hairdryer. This is a little too hot and can cause the wax to drip really quickly.
I just checked the post box today and it turns out that my Pussy Willow set has also arrived today. (I sometimes send parcels to my husband's company box if I won't be home.) I don't understand the post system. They were sent out 3 weeks apart and arrive on the same day. I was terrified it had gotten lost. Stand tight for some of those images too!
