thank you

 I love Nestabilities.  I love multiple layers on my cards and nestabilities makes it easy.  This card uses the Frosted Window technique (please see this previous post) and nestablilites to create an eye catching card.  I also used an embossing folder (I can't remember which one, but it's from Stampin' Up!) to add texture to the background.  I added a some hodgepodge to complete the card.

A quick project

It has been a challenge to spend any time in my crafting room.  With two little ones, I don't get much time to myself.  However, the other day I took advantage of both kids napping.  I quickly flew downstairs, and began working on these candles.  I wanted to make something, but I had no set plans.  I saw the blank candles and started from there.  I all I did was picked out the Big Blossom stamp and some bright and bold colors.  Voila!!!  I have four beautiful candles.  I also stamped sentiments from Friendship Flowers on the back.

I have a family reunion at the end of the month, and we always do a silent auction.  These are my contributions.  Hopefully they fetch a pretty penny.
