It's time for Challange 9 - a little illumination, please!

Thank you all for your patience in waiting for the posting of this challenge! This challenge is the pick of DT member Iris...

time to decorate a candle!!

How fun is that? For those of you who've done it, you know it can be a LOT of fun! For those who haven't tried it yet, now's the time! Candles make wonderful all-ocassion gifts, even just to brighten someone's day (or night, LOL!)...

Check out the wonderful tutorial Iris has put together on decorating candles!
Visit our beautiful Roses on Paper DT Project Blog for instruction and insight!

Now if you don't want to or cannot venture into decorating a candle with us, here is an alternate project for you...Iris has chosen a beautiful photo (above) that she'd like you to use as inspiration for a card! You should get inspired by the gorgeous scene/colors and make a card you are inspired to make!

Don't forget to use an image from Magnolia, Alota, Stampavie, or the Greeting Farm
on this project!
The winner of this Challenge will be randomly chosen and announced on Monday, April 20th! (I'm giving a couple days extra because I REALLY want everyone to try the candle decorating!)

**Candle-decoraters will get DOUBLE POINTS for this one...
your name will be thrown in the pot, TWICE!**
This week's prize is a set of 2 of the Greeting Farm's cute new Fairies...
Fairy Chloe & Fairy Eva!

Some beautiful pictures from a few of the DT members,
to help "spark" your creativity!







Join us, won't you?!

  10. Hey there ladies,
    I have ANOTHER candle to enter. I had originally made it go along with a gift set, and to be part of the "Club Anya Blog Hop" the other day, but apparently people thought I should enter it here as well. Even though I already entered my other candles. This one was a little different, it's just a shorty, but it goes along with your "Prize" theme...
    If you wish to see, you can check it out here!Thanks again girls!
    I Had lots & lots of fun with this one, I can't wait to see what the next "Different" thing will be. =)
