Quite a Weekend

Submitted to Crop Chocolate Challenge #37 - Texturize
and Anything But a Card Challenge #5

It's been quite a weekend.  I did manage to finish one craft project.  I made a candle holder to enter into both of these challenges.  Crop Chocolate asked us to texturize with some uncommon material.  I used this fabulous silver netting I have.  Anything But a Card asked us to incorporate black.  I used Trinity Sincerely paper and some TH distress.  I also used some black websters ribbon, silver netting and a fabulous flower and butterfly from UmWow Studios.

I love how this version of the clothespin/tuna can candle holder turned out!

Now, why, you may be asking did I have quite a weekend?  Friday, I won some embossing folders and got the most beautiful flowers at work.  Saturday afternoon, I made Christmas cards with this great group of ladies.  On Saturday eve, the husband and I spent the night at the boat.  When we went out to the car this morning, this is what we found:

All that black-ish stuff on the ground is my back wing window!  I had picked up a couple of boxes of crafty goodness from the mailbox on my way to the party.  They were GONE.  Fortunately, the DIRTY ROTTEN THIEVES who took my stuff didn't really want it and dropped it at a nearby park, where a wonderful man (Joe from Sacramento - you know who you are) went through the effort of finding me.  Not all of my new things were there, but most of them were.  Hey Joe, I appreciate you!  Now, just got to get a new window.............

Craftily yours,

  2. Gorgeous candle holder here - really clever creation. How awful for you with the car thing. How wonderful that 'Joe' was such an angel though!
