Totally Papercrafts Challenge # 42 - 'Black & Purple'

Good morning, thank Crunchie it's Friday! It's been a very long week for me, so am so glad the weekend has come around again. Friday means challenge time again over at Totally Papercrafts Challenge . This week, the DT have made projects using the colours 'Black & Purple', they are stunning, do whizz over and take a look via the link above.

The lovely Mandi Moore is sponsoring the challenge this week and the prize is a gorgeous set of Stamping Up stamps, (one of the sets on my wishlist).

In addition to this Mandi, has very generously thrown in an extra special offer. For anyone who places a SU order with her during the course of this challenge week they will be entered into a draw to win a co-ordinating bauble punch worth £15.50If anyone would like to order any SU goodies you can visit her blog.

To my DT creation, I have altered a purple candle. I brought it at ASDA and OMG it's smell of berries, is just gorgeous! I have wrapped around it, a Black Bazzill Smootie band, with punched edges from my new EK 'wave' punch and some black silk ribbon. Have cut out two Nestibility shapes and attached together with a purple stoned brad. Stamped up my new lush LOTV stamp and sentiment circle stamp and edged them with my Momento 'Grape Jelly'. The image is coloured in with Promarkers and have added some small MS snowflakes and clear stones. My friend Sharon loves candles, so I will probably give it to her. We often go candle smelling at a local shop here, yep people watching do think we are barmy, but Yankee candles are so scrummy, lol!

Georgia is off of school today, she has a temperature and a tummy ache, so we have been snuggled up with the cats watching movies, 'Christmas with the Kranks', this morning and now 'Narnia'. I really must get on with my Christmas cards, have so many left to do. I started off the year really well, having made about thirty, but as I have been working alot, I just haven't had the time, I would so love to be organised!

Anyway, have to go get Georgia some lunch, have a lovely weekend and keep warm!

Hi Heidi, your candle is beautiful. The colour combo is stunning. I adore Yankee candles and have a huge stash of the wax tarts in a box. I'm a bit of a sniffer too and ooh and ahhh nearly as much as when I'm craft shopping LOL
Hope Georgia feels much better very soon.

Howdy stranger, your candle is yummy. I love purple (me fav. colour). You have done a fantastic job.
Hope Georgia is feeling better real soon. We have not been to good this end either hence the reason for no blogging etc...Partly to blame is the kids dropping the modem so I had no internet for a while ggggrrrr little buggers.
Take care
OOPS nearly forgot, I haven't recieve your parcel yet but i will contact the Post Office tomorrow to see if its down there
