Tilda.......... you light up the world.

Good afternoon to you all
I started this morning by waking up to a new follower, so without fail as always, this is a welcome to Emilia and Steve (well this was the name on the follower list) so I hope that is right, any way welcome to my little section of blog land and hope that I provide you with some inspiration along the way or at least a smile or two.

The post man arrived and delivered my Crafty Sentiments clear stamp from my win, just gonna have to ink her up she is lovely, watch this space, there are some lovely new releases for this Christmas pop over and take a look.

I would like to say hello again to Mandy, lovely to have you back following me, no apology needed there are always technical glitches hun - hope you find your other missing people xx

I would like to say thank you to Sue for my lovely e mail, it is still in my mail in box and I think it will be there for a few years to come, what a lovely mail, made my heart sing - so thank you from the bottom of my heart hun xx

Finally a HUGE thank you to Sam
Now for those of you who have not visited or seen Sam's work before it is totally unique.  She amazes me with all the techniques she uses and worries me at the same time with all the heating/burning she does, however she is fabulous on her sewing machine.  Without Sam I would not have been directed to this wonderful site The Technique Zone which resolved an issue I was having with a future DT card - cannot explain any more as yet, but whilst on this site I found out why my very first attempt at today's creation did not work as well as it should have.  So the biggest ((((( HUGS)))) to Sam and thanks hun xx 

So now that I have wet your appetite and interest I better quickly get around to showing you what I have been up to.
I have been creating candles, got two really cheap candles from the shop a while back but did not master this in any way but now I have and I am thrilled.  This is a Xmas Magnolia Candle.  It has lots of Tilda's on it and flourishes and a Sentiment too.  Coloured with copics and glittered up with stickles.  Now I am not even going to start to explain how to do this, so scroll back up and find the link to the Technique Zone.  Whilst your there go and have a good old browse. If you think your stuck in a little bit of a rut, go and expand your creations and try something new. The images are some that I got from Polly at Artfulwings, thank you hun, by the way have you been over to see A Vintage affair lately, if you like to create beautiful unique pieces it might be the place for you.

So not much for me to say than sorry again as this is photo heavy
I loved every minute of creating this and will definitely be going back to buy some more candles.  

As I was not planning on this fitting any challenges what so ever, I am so pleased that I can enter this into the following challenges

WAHOO! What an amazing creation. I'm late commenting but am SO happy I hopped over. My mom would have been thrilled so see such a lovely creation inspired by her precious critters. So fitting, to me, that you used an angel image with the colors. THANK you for sharing at the OSC.
