Creative Artiste Challenge Blog - Challenge 9 Anything Goes

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

The weekend is nearly here. I am doing a really nice thing at work today. There is a special service at Winchester Cathedral arranged by Hampshire Music service for special needs children. It is very well done and everyone gets to join in. In a lot of ways this is the highlight of our year. The only downside is that I haven't left my husband alone for so long yet. I have arranged for some friends to pop in and see him.

There is a new challenge starting today on the Creative Artiste Challenge blog the sponsor is Foilplay and the theme is Anything Goes.

I was very lucky and I won this kit to make a candle holder on the Creative Expressions Facebook page. They have a competition every Friday it is well worth entering.


The MDF pieces were painted  and the inside stamped before I slotted the sides together. I could have stuck this together but I decided not to so that it could be packed away when we aren't using it. 


I made it a sort of skirt using lots of my Sue Wilson dies. This is detachable. 


You can see the stamping in gold and silver on the inside. The candle is one of those electric ones I just feel they are a little safer. 


Here it is lit in the evening. This will be one of our main Christmas decorations this year most of our things are in the loft and the boxes are too heavy for me and my husband can't manage them with one hand. 

I hope that you have a great day today. It is a very busy time of year. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
