Christmas Candles

Good morning and welcome to my blog, I can't believe it but it's the school holiday break again.  It's nice having the boys home as Liam is studying for his end of year exams.  We've had nothing but rain these last six days.  Hopefully the weather will improve that we can spend some time up at our beach house before the boys go back.   Liam spent 6 days in Singapore with my husband at the start of the holidays where they attend the Formula One Grand Prix.  As Singapore is so close to the Equator it was very hot, day and night.  It was a great time to have a male bonding holiday.
Today is Wednesday which means is another 

This week we have another sketch by Sally Dude.

Sketch # 99

Christmas Candles.

The image is 3 D mounted and here's a quick peek of the inside of the card.

This is so very pretty. I really like the cream and dark - looks like mulberry on my screen. The embossing is perfect for this sketch - I have that little set and forget to use it! Thanks for joining the weekly QKR challenge = embossing. Dorothy S, DT member

This is so lovely. I like that image and your embossing and the lovely matching papers REALLY made your card extra special. Great job this week.


btw: the hot link to your blog over on the Sweet Sketch post this week directs to Anne's blog, not yours.

I saw your card when the release came our late last night and thought it was just stunning. It is so elegant with the embossing and those papers, bling and the pearls added to it. We have had so much rain here this month that we have had over 8 inches already which is 5 inches over the norm so we have had flooding in many areas. It is getting old. I feel like I'm getting some of the crud you had since I have had sinus/migraine headaches for several days that are driving me crazy.
