Birthday candles.

Today is my friend Kathy's birthday and I made her a little present....

I got some candles from a Warehouse store for $3 each and took some tissue paper and stamped a Hero Arts flower stamp, masked it and added some leaves.  I decided to leave them black and white.  I used my heat tool to melt the tissue into the candle.

Kathy loved these so that was happy.  The card I gave her was one of my corset cards

I've also been working on my CCC card for Arlene ~ in today's post and my Mygrafico project for next weeks challenge.  So some cards to share next week.

Once I get this finished, one more card to finish off then packing my weekend bag for another weekend away.  This time to visit BIL and SIL in Hamilton.  The All Blacks are playing Ireland on Saturday there, and Hubby and his brother have tickets to go.  SIL and I will stay home and watch it on TV ( in the warm!)  We are taking half a day off work tomorrow to head down Friday as the boys are going to a Rugby dinner that evening.

Have a great weekend all....

What a great and unique gift, Dana! Made with love! You might want to enter these in the current Simon Says Stamp Blog challenge for anything but a card. They are simply lovely. You are so thoughtful. Love this vintage card, too. Take good care!
