So Happy for you!!

Good morning! I am so off on my days it isn't funny. I was thinking all day yesterday it Tuesday. I guess that makes for a short week because this morning I realized it was Thursday.
Yesterday my daughter and granddaughter came over and did come crafting. I love it when we can get together and do things like that. I know it just makes my day a whole lot better! My daughter had a silohette machine and she brought it so I could cut some things. I love it!! I will show you some things later that I did when I make a project with them. My daughter was finishing up a sewing project and my granddaughter did a few things. One thing she did that I am going to proudly display is a drawing she did of me in anime cartoon character. I told her that I was going to frame it and I definitely will. Thanks for coming over T & J!!! I had a great time!
On to my project for this post. My husband's sister got married at the end of last month as you can see by the date on the candle. I made this for them. I just haven't gotten it posted until now. Since we weren't able to attend I don't know if she had a specific color for her wedding. I decided I wanted to use Summer Sunrise. I thought it was a cheery color and went well with the daisies. The image is from JustRite's Beautiful Blossons set. I love how Nichole Heady does the tape and glitter so I decided to do it with this card and used two different sizes for under the image. I think it really stands out. For the candle I stamped my image on tissue paper. I colored it with copics as I did the main image. I found out you have to have a light touch and smooth paper to do the coloring with copics. If there is any kind of wrinkle it will run along it. When I found the yellow candle I wasn't sure how it would take the tissue paper, but I was pleasantly surprised that it turned out like it did.

Have a wonderful day and as always thank you for stopping by!

What a beautiful gift set. I made a candle like that once with one of my sons drawings, but I have never done it with a stamp. I guess I will have to add it to my list of things to try.
