Sharing is caring!

Happy Sunday fellow bloggers! Yes, i was MIA yesterday... i was busy, busy in the craft room trying to finish up some Xmas gifts... No, it's not all complete... LOL... did manage to get in some card making time... and i do have one for you today...

This card is up for FFF - Kadie's No DP or patterned paper challenge... it's hard not to pull out some DP, but i did my best... Made this card for DD#2's 2nd birthday coming up in 2 weeks... i can't believe how time flew by...

I used Madelynn, one of the newly released Twinkle Tots from TGF... she's such a cutie... had this really cute heart ribbon by American Crafts that i based my colors on... no DP right?! so i used some embossing plates to add some texture and design... and wow! i didn't use glitter! i can't believe that.... well, DD#2 is that girly... LOL... used 2 different heart punch sizes to make the hearts... sentiment is from Hero Arts... i don't know why, but i like the color combo... =D

i've always wanted to try adding a stamp image to a candle... and hence i tried it last night.... i used the My House set from TGF... and voila! did my first candle... on the back it says "house warming"... just being silly and wanted to try... it came out okay... the intention is there... house + candle = house warming... LOL...

so this was just a quick little post to share some creations... don't forget my blog candy giveaway is still going on... click here to go to the post... i'll end it here as my craft room is a super mess and i have some things to finish up... hopefully i'll be back to share some other things with you! until then, enjoy this beautiful Sunday!!!
