A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland!

I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Keeping the candle burning …………

Hiya all!  Today I thought I'd share my most recent make with you all - and I am super excited that my effort actually WORKED!!!

Today is my beautiful eldest daughter & son-in-law's wedding anniversary - I'm probably a bit biased, but I have to say they really do make a perfect couple :o) 

A couple of days ago I was looking through Pop's Cards and was amazed at her tutorial for transferring images onto candles!  I went straight out, bought myself a couple of candles & practically ran home to begin my project! 


I downloaded this adorable cave couple from Tiddly Inks, which also comes with lots of extras including a cave & background papers!  After colouring I attempted my transfer and ........ voila ......... it worked!!! :o) Yippee!!!  (I actually want to transfer EVERYTHING onto candles now!)


I did a simple card to co-ordinate with the candle.  The background papers on this card have been in my stash for absolute donkeys years ... (really sorry but I cannot for the life of me remember where I got them from) and the rocks are from part of the 'cave' extra.  I printed the sentiment from my computer then drew a bone & coloured.  A bone is also one of the extras that comes with these digi stamps but, as I wanted to insert the sentiment within it, I thought I'd just draw my own!  I'm sure there may be a way to add text into the digi image ............ I'm just not sure how yet! :o)


My daughter & son-in-law were chuffed to bits with my little creation .......... hope you like it too :o)

Thanks so much for dropping by today!
Big hugs, Tracey xx
