This card has been made for a friend who has just got himself a new job as the caretaker at the school my DS attends, so I thought this would be rather appropriate.
It's using one of the Joanna Sheen Messy Rabbit stamps which are rather cute (note to self must buy more stamps for men), the image was stamped and coloured using promarkers, and baking paper from stash.
Happy crafting everyone

I made this card and thought I would enter it in the Daring cardmakers weekly challenge, it's a birthstone themed challenge and the August birthstone is Peridot which is also the national gem of Egypt, the Ancient Egyptians called it "the gem of the sun", so the challenge is to make a card with yellow, greens, limes.....the colour of the birthstone..............so I thought this image and colours were just perfect
I love these stamps they just remind you of being carefree and whymsical.....
Hope you like, and thanks for popping by today...
So I think I now need to make a brag book........the trophy is pride of place on his windowsill and will probably be dutifully dusted by mother every day!!! How cute is he in his kit, I love this boy he's the best!!!

so it was a perfect excuse to get started on my christmas cards..............and poor Tilda has been itching to get out of my craft drawer after hubby bought her for me last christmas as a christmas present......so it's her coming out party!! ......and I know it's not traditional christmas colours before you throw even more tomatoes, but I got these christmas papers free in a mag last christmas after I had already finished my christmas cards, so they have been stashed away all year waiting for usage!!! and I am also a bit partial to pink, actually I luuuuurve pink (confession over)

If you dont know how they are mad its quite simple, stamp your image on tissue paper (the type you get in shoe boxes, colour in and cut out (doesn't have to be too accurate) place onto your candle, I normally put a tiny bit of glue stick on candle to hold image in place. Wrap some greaseproof paper around candle and heat your image with heat tool.....DON'T MAKE MY MISTAKE AND OVER HEAT!!!! or you end up with a waxy mess :) the image should gently melt into wax as soon as this is done remove heat and VOILA!!!!! cheap lovely present.
HAPPY CANDLE MAKING ;0)
