Candles and a card

These are some candles I made for a co-worker for her birthday. They were quick & easy, and I like the way they came out. I found candles on sale for $1 each at Michaels a couple of months ago. So I bought a bunch of them to decorate & have on hand for just such an occasion. I used some DSP by Debbie Mumm from a stack I got at Jo Ann's, and Martha Stewart punches for the butterflies. I put 1/2 pearls on the butterflies to decorate them. The "ribbon" is actually paper ribbon I bought from HSN.
The card goes along with the bag that I posted on Thursday. Just thought you might like to see it too. The purple (SU Elegant Eggplant) looks black in the picture. I tried different lighting sources, etc, but it always photographs as black for some reason.
I finally took pics & edited a number of cards, so I'm ready to post on a regular basis now. So check back tomorrow to see what Winnie & I have in store for you.
Speaking of Winnie, she really had some adjustment issues with the new house. She was really suffering from separation anxiety, and I even had to take her to the doctor. They put her on some meds, but really the only thing that helped was time. She would bark and carry on when I left her in the mornings. Now she is doing much much better.
Until tomorrow, happy stamping!

Bear gift bag

This is the gift bag I made to hold the candle & journal I made for our new next door neightbor as a thank you gift for the wonderful home made German Chocolate cake she made for us to welcome us to the neighborhood. It was delicious!!!! I almost licked the plate. It was so thoughtful of her to make us a cake!

Sorry I've been away for so long. Just trying to get settled into the new house has been a real challenge in a lot of ways. And my craft room is still not fully unpacked.

Thanks for looking and I hope to be back tomorow or Friday at the latest!

Happy Stamping!
Patty & Winnie
