Silver Christmas Candle

Hi to all my friends and followers  so sorry its been ages since I posted anything been busy with the usual Christmas stuff and have not had time for any crafting at all. The post today is one of my Christmas candles that I made at my Craft Group last Thursday. I led the class and people made candles similar to mine and some to their own designs they all enjoyed making them and they were all stunning.
This is the one I made its silver so a bit different. Hope you enjoy looking at and  it gets you in the mood for next week.



 
 
I personally like the silver think its a bit more modern.
 

Candle Recipe

Candle from Homebase my Tesco had run out.
Silver Snowflake parchment paper.
Spellbinders Poinsettia die
Leaves and  Berries from my stash
Narrow tinsel from local craft store Boyes
Spellbinders scalloped circle die
Silver Mirra Card
Sentiment LOTV Grunge Christmas stamp embossed in silver
Silver Ribbon from Craft Shop in Lichfield
 
Before I finish I just want to ask you all to remember my very best friend Ed in your thoughts and  prayers he is very very poorly right now and  needs as much support as we can give to him and his wife Val. Amazingly they have been going out together for 50 years today and married for 43.  I've told them its four life sentences but what an achievement to still remember the exact day after 50 years . I love them both so much.
This will not be my last post before Christmas I have a couple more I hope.
I hope you all enjoy your evening and are sitting back relaxing  if you are  like me its a dream as I  still have loads to do before next week.
