My first altered candle!!

Stamp- Free Hugs from Dies to Die For.
Candle- £1 from trusty poundshop :)
Morning peeps!!!
Hope you are all having a fabulous Friday!! I am actually lost for days! Chrimbles has fried my already useless little brain and all day yesterday I thought it was wednesday....that was until my old boss rang to arrange what time I am working this afternoon!!!!romfl!! I am so glad he rang as I was so sure it wasn't for another day!!! he he he he!!!

So last night to help my brain settle down I got back into crafty mode and decided to make my first altered candle with my Free Hugs Saturated Canary stamp. I keep seeing these gorgeous candles people have been making with their stamps and thinking to myself I want to do it but never took the plunge!! I am so pleased I did because it was so much fun. I need to practice my colouring on the tissue paper a bit to get nicer blends of colours  because its so different to working on my normal promarker paper choice but thats all part of the fun of stamping in a different way.

I got 3 of these pillar candles from the poundshop before christmas so you can probably expect to see another 2 candles popping up soon!! 

Right, I am off to get dressed and get another load of washing on...its funny how behind you get with 3 days off the laundry for christmas!!!! and Mo is busy learning 'furbish' with his new furby!! its quite funny!! he asked for breakfast by telling me
" mummy I am ay-tay for some coco pops please" 

Thank you for popping in on me
Huge hugs Lou xxx

  5. Lou beautiful candle, they are so much fun to do, it is hard getting back on track, hugs

  6. Hey Lou, our christmas was quiet but nice, I hope you had a fabby christmas too. This year I did candles as gifts for people which were a hit. They can be really versatile. Wait until you start embellishing them and then making them for others, they can be really addictive x

    Happy Saturday and thank you for sharing x
