WOJ *80*........

Good Morning!
I am a little late today as I couldn't
find the sun to take a picture!! LOL
Anyways over at the WOJ
challenge blog Donalda has created
a beautiful sketch to work with.
I have made a little gift for the
helper in Lauren's classroom.

I decided to make another one of Lene's
tealight candle cards. They are so pretty
and easy to do!
(But you may want to check
your tealight measurements before following
the measurements on the tutorial and adjust
as you see fit!)

I have use some Fancy Pants papers
(My fav at the mo!)and Basic Grey. 
I have also used my fiskars apron
punch for my edges and again used a ton
of Distress crackle paint! (My daughter asked
me why do I keep using that stuff and my
answer is that if I don't it doesn't
look finished now!! LOL I have created
a monster out of myself with this stuff!! LOL)
The white polka dot ribbon is from Stamping bella!
Not sure if it is still there as it is years old.
Sentiment is from Crafty Secrets.

Also I have a card posted on the
if you want to see a sneak peek of the upcoming
release Emma has one posted as well!!
You won't want to miss it!!

Well thanks so much for stopping by and I hope
you all have a wonderful day! It is
so dark and cold here! So I guess it is
a perfect day to tidy up the basement!!
Take care,

Hi Kathy, I love your card and I have a tealight fetish! LOL! Always buying them, even if I don't need them. Love your distressed paint touches, know what you mean if you stop using something it looks bare! I was like that with stickles but am trying to wean myself off! Lol! Take care. kxx
