I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #54

This is my DT project for this week's challenge on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge which this week is set by the lovely Mandy. She has chosen a theme of:-

DIG DEEP

We want you to use old stamps or images on your creations.

I made a candle for a Christmas Present for a friend. I made a few of these last year and they were so well received I thought I'd have another go.

This is so cool, I love it. It is neat to see other creations with stamps besides the normal card or scrap page. Very lovely, and that image is great. If I got this as a gift, I would only burn a little at the top and then insert a tea light or votive so I could have it for years and years.
