Lighting the Way with the Winter Wonderland

Good morning to you

so sorry if you were expecting the next Wild Rose Studio release :( I will be back tomorrow with my next inspiration for them :)

anyway today is the start of a new challenge at the


where we are sponsored by the fabulous

Who are offering 3 digi images of the winners choice

Our theme this week is

Candles
so an image with a candle on it or candles on the papers, or even candle embellishments and if that fails you can create a candle like I did.

Our Design Team were lucky enough to be offered some of those amazing Kenny K images to work with, so here is my inspiration 
I made an advent calendar candle with my image which is called
and she is the clean version with clothes on, as there is one without :)
I am making quite a few of these for the MIL to sell on her table.

Here are some more images
 This one shows the flowers on the side, now the majority of these flowers are from the Hobby House, with a woodware Holly punch to finish.  The string of pearls around the top and the diamante bling are also from the Hobby House.
The ribbon is from Grimsby Crafts and the red diamante detail is from my stash. I made the numbers using the computer and printed out onto my tissue paper.

A close up of those flowers, the mulberry roses and the cherry blossom with the large and tiny poinsettias.  I gave the flowers a quick blast with the crafter's companion gold spray for that extra Xmas feel.

The image is coloured in copics.

A warm welcome to my new followers, and I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes
Crafty Ribbon - Anything Goes with Ribbon
C.R.A.F.T. - Christmas
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Holly Jolly Christmas - Anything but a card

Hugs and Enjoy Your Day

Gorgeous candle Kate - love the image (so glad she's a bit clothed!!!). This looks lovely with all the flowers, pearls etc....presumably you can remove them before lighting the candle?

Hugs.
