A Christmas Candle

Hello all and I hope that you're having a good weekend - and not rushing around too much getting ready for Christmas! Thankfully I finished work yesterday for 2 weeks - and I am so looking forward to getting some r&r time (fingers crossed!).  The usual house full tonight and we're all off to the cinema tomorrow to see the new Hobbit film (have I ever confessed that I am a huge Lord of the Rings fan?  I read the books when I was about 16, got hooked and have re-read them regularly since!).

A short post from me this evening - and then I'm off for a sprawl on the sofa lol!  Another Christmas card - and I think that might be the last Christmassy one for this year (possibly!)

I've used a cute LOTV stamp, coloured with copics and promarkers (with added glamour dust of course!)

The backing papers are from LOTV with some kraft card and I've added some sheer ribbon from Joanna Sheen and a Christmas recipe tag from LOTV

Hope you like it! 
I'll be back before Christmas - hopefully! 
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments - I can't explain how nice it is to be able to share my attempts at various crafting creations and then to read your supportive and positive comments. They really do mean so much.
Take care - and don't work too hard!

  6. Oh my - this card is stunning, Kim. I love the papers and the colours. And adding the recipe tag is such a wonderful idea. Gorgeous. Enjoy your r&r, have a fabulous Christmas and New Year, hug, Karon.

  7. This is so lovely Kim, so beautifully coloured. Hope you have a good time at the flicks tonight. I didn't have my i pad sent via Santa as from the order date you have so long to send it back if you regret buying one and also so long to have lessons via the phone or via web cam link. They phone you, you just pick up a link and enter your phone number and with in seconds they ring you. Something I need. Lol!!!

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog and your lovely comments over the past year.

    Christmas Blessings.
