With Christmas in mind, I have created a candle-holder with lots of stars. Just perfect for a seasonal table centre-piece! I worked with the fabulous Christmas Emporium papers from Graphic 45, my goodness did you ever see those fabulous papers from Graphic 45......wowzers they are really amzing guys....


and for the stars I worked with Golden Distress Stickles



using lots of Distress Inks on the edges and reindeer. To finish my festive piece, I topped everything off with Perfect Pearls Mist. And I placed some snow at the bottom of the candle holder.........


I found some stars on a hanger in my closet and thought that I could use them too.....I love them......and you???


And yep I could not help myself and I just had to play with this lace.....and I made a  few bows out of it.


And I placed a bow on the top in front of the little candleholder....the pearls on a string are from my own stash too.....


Now you have seen every piece of the candleholder, all around....I am pleased with the result and I hope you will like it too....
So you wanna have fun with the challenge then come on over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog and dooooo join in. And while your there check out my AMAZING teamies projects .....your not going to believe what you can make with a Star...wow......

Simon Says Stamp and Show , Show us Your Woman Only

Hey there guys, wohoooo another fabulous Monday and yesss you all know what that means eh? Yup......another FABULOUS challenge on the


And yessssss another week of fabulous sponsoring by our REGULAR Sponsor




.....they have another wonderfull prize just waiting for you or at least for ONE lucky winner.......check this out.....



Oke here I go with my project for this week...this week it is


.....so that should not be toooo hard eh? cause a lot of us are woman so you better get your thinking cap on and start crafting something for a WOMAN ONLY......you can make anything you like.....as long as it is VINTAGE and for  WOMAN ONLY

Lets see what I came up with......



When I thought of the Woman Only project for this week, I was thinking of an altered photoframe,  perfectly fit for a woman only...so I found a fab classy lady on the net, to use for the frame........she really looks like a mystery woman doesn't she???




the frame is worked on with Wendy Vecchi's Art Parts Leaves and I played with Faded Jeans.






The Flowers are from The Wendy, Dreams of Art and worked on with Distress Crackle Paint and colored with Vintage Photo, Faded Jeans and Forest Moss. On the flowers I used some spacers and the perlen pen. And yep I found a little shoe in my stuff so I thought how feminin is that eh? And the last placed flower has a little beat on top, it is from a broken bracelet....how cool is that eh?


This stamped up image is from The Tim's Seamless Experience cling stamps, they are absolutely georgous and you can use them in so many ways....and yes I found a string of silver dreads and a "head" of silver with bling in it so I thought that would look nice on her head.


And how about the border that I placed underneith the frame? I made it with the Wendy Vecchi Dreams of Art stampset...... and placed the beads from the broken bracelet on top....it gives it a bit of a shiny look ......The Huge button is from an old vest of mine hehehe....I did not like the vest but the button....completely YUMMIENESS....LOL....


And I even roled up a postcard from the Graphic 45 paperpad, thought that it was just what the frame needed at the bottom.....




And here is my whole project....I hope you like what you see, I sure do.....and the woman that I made it for liked it a lot wohoooooo.....
The swirls are from The Tim's Grungeboard Elements and colored with the Peeled Paint and Faded Jeans.
So ladies, you wanna have lots of fun and create something for WOMAN ONLY? You bettet come on over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog and do join into the fun....and while your there, just check out the AMAZINGLY made creations of my even more AMAZING teamies...my goodnesss are you in for a treat or what......check it out oke?
