Christmas gifts..... A candle and some jars.....

Hiya! I've been a very busy bee just lately catching up with all my christmas cards and goodies - I just haven't stopped to post them on my blog so this is a couple of posts in one....
I've seen these candles made by various people and assumed they'd be really tricky to make. But a bit of hunting on Google and I found out how easy they are! I'm sooo pleased with the results. This one is for my Mom - I can post this on my blog safe in the knowledge she won't see it cos she's still on her Carribean cruise! Alright for some! The image is of course from Lili of the Valley and coloured with my promarkers. Needs a bit of ribbon or tinsel round the bottom, maybe?
I'm entering it into:
Creative Inspirations - Christmas gifts
Creative Inspirations (a different one!) - Christmas decorations (no cards!)
A pal of mine, Lynn, asked me to decorate some jars for her boys to fill with goodies and take into school as prizes. I really enjoyed myself :-) The papers are Deck the Halls by Papermania, the ribbons are a mixture of my stash and some I won from Suzanne (thankyou!), the sentiments are Daisy and Dandelion clear stamps cut with nesties, the chipboard shapes are from my pal Yvonne (thankyou!) and the toppers were also won from Suzanne. Just got to fill them with goodies now :-).
I'm entering the first jar into the Pollycraft Monday challenge which is to use chipboard.
More posts soon!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
