Festival of Light at Tuesday Taggers

Morning dear friends, well we have reached another week at Tuesday Taggers, 1st off all I would like to thank everyone who took part in last weeks challenge, all your works was awesome and I love you all for your support.


 FESTIVAL OF LIGHT






This week we are celebrating the "Festival of Light" which has different meaning to different people and faiths all around the world and we want to see yours......our DT as usual have surpassed themselves to showcase our "Festival of Light", pop over and check out all the fab projects and take part, we want to see, what Festival of Light means to you........

My project was quite simply a Candle, using the D&D images I cannot seem to make enough off these, with daughters, and grand-daughters around, I make one and it is gone....LOL, in honour of the season I got out my gorgeous Table runner to showcase the candle, I also made a matt for it sitting on, using a CD, which I coloured with acrylic paints and embossed with green tinsel embossing powder, just before taking the picture I sprinkled a little white glitter around it to look like snow....Hope you like.......have a fab Tuesday dear friends and just to let you know the book half won yesterday, I started projects in the shed, which I hope to finish today, but I spent a little time reading too, I have had a slack wisdom tooth  (now I know you are falling about laughing, me with wisdom, well not anymore, cos they are all out now.....) for about 6 months and it came out yesterday afternoon, and I was very tired for some reason.......so I relaxed and read.....

This candle is gorgeous Avril. I've not been brave enough to try a candle yet. Maybe one day! Horrible day here again. Friday and Monday were gorgeous but Saturday and Sunday were awful. Pity cos husband was trying to build what looks like a complete swing park for Poppy in Crieff. She wanted to be out in the rain helping(!?) but I managed to persuade her back indoors eventually.
Just noticed the time and I still have to have my lunch and go to work. Oops!
