Thought for the day -

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved." Helen Keller

Good morning. Well I am off to work again...sigh.  I never get as much done as I would like on the weekends. The card I have made today is part of a gift set- a card & candle.
As I've mentioned before I am doing a craft show at work in November. So I am offering various items including candles.  One of my co-workers makes candles so she provided me with the candles and I am adding the images.  I am doing 20 candles in all in 2 different sizes.

The sketch I have used on todays card is from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I just loved this sketch and this is the 2nd card I've made using it- too late for the challenge but I entered the other card.  Today I am playing along with the challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar and their theme this week is Floral Delight.

Here is my floral delight in pretty fall colors.  I just love sunflowers and this image is from KLM DigiStamps.  If you look closely at my eyelets you can see they are also flowers.  They have been in my stash forever but went nicely with this paper & theme.  The distressing is a bit heavier than I would like but I had trouble applying - it just didn't want to sponge on. 

Here is a pic of the card and candle together.  This candle smells great!! The scent is pumpkin pie spice.
I am very happy with the candle!! I love this image and sentiment and the colors turned out much more vivid than I thought they would.  The images were both colored with prismacolor pencils.  Both images and sentiment are from KLM.

 Thanks for stopping by!
