Better late than never



I got this fun comforter set from Target right before my surgery, back in August. I'd been meaning to replace the light blue candles I had that matched my other comforter since then. So, I finally got to it. I used some flourish stamps (I don't remember the brand) and SU Best Blossoms. I stamped them on tissue paper with Chocolate Chip and Pink Passion. I then wrapped the tissue paper around the candles and then heated with my embossing gun. The embossing gun melts the candle just a bit and the tissue paper like melts into the candle. It is awesome and SO easy! The best part about it is that those super cheap $ store candles work great for it. So, if you're looking for an Christmas gift idea - this is a good one! Here's a close up look of the candles:

And, here's a look at the kitty that seems to be neglected by my blog, Citrus (AKA Cityboy):
Well, for those of you who are wondering - I had a great first day at my new job! The people seem very nice!
I did look at the Technique challenge this morning and while I loved it, I had to skip it, because I don't have any corner punches. Maybe Santa will put one in my stocking! But, I will be sure to join in the color challenge tomorrow and maybe even TCP (The Cat's Pajamas) Tuesday!

Glad the first day went well, it's always tiring with a new learning curve. That flowery candle especially is gorgeous. We used to have marmalade cats like that at one stage, the first family cats I can rememember. Hope the rest of the week goes well and you'll be settled in to everything by the end.
