My first candle !!! :-)

There is a fab challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp Papercraft Forum :-) DT Chris has organised a 12 days of Christmas Challenge and we are already on day 3. Today's challenge is to make, alter or create a Christmas ornament - for your tree, your mantle, or your wall. Easy :-)

As you can see I chose to decorate a candle :-) I have been wanting to have a go at making one of these as I have seen them on several blogs and they all looked fabby ,,,, not sure I have achieved fabbyness ,,, but it is my first attempt so be nice !! :-)

I am also entering this into the By Cute and Girly December Challenge whose theme is Lets go to the Movies ,,, well my film titles are 'Happy Feet' which is a film about dancing penguins ,, and March of the Penguins, which is more of a documentary type film ,,, so take ya pick !! :-)

i hope you find some time to join in the 12 days of Christmas Challenge ,,, Heidi from Simon says Stamp is giving away loads of fabulous prizes !!

I have a log candy sponsored by Simon says Stamp, it is at the top of my blog if you would like to take a look :-)
