It's Still Cold!

We are still dealing with some cold weather (only in the mid-teens for our high temperature) here in WI! Brrrr! Today we got 6 inches of snow! YUCK! I am so ready for spring! But since we are still dealing with winter I thought it would be fun to make something with my WOJ Herb stamp! I got this wonderful stamp from Wish On A Scrap....and it makes for a great Christmas or winter theme gift/card.

A few years ago I started getting snowmen for my Mom to collect....so twhen I saw this stamp I knew I had to make something for her with it! I stamped Herb on some white tissue paper and colored him with my Copics. Then I used my heat tool and wax paper to adhere Herb to the candle. Added some stickles, snow on the bottom, along with flowers and snowflakes from my stash.
And here is a picture of the candle in the dark! This isn't your "normal" candle....this is a safe candle (seeing how my Dad doesn't care for real candles)! It's an LED light inside so you just flip the switch to turn the candle on or off! The most awesome part is the candle still smells like peppermint!
Your creation never dies with a candle like this!!! You can enjoy it forever, by just changing the batteries!
Thanks for stopping by, hope you are having a great weekend! Make sure you check back tomorrow as I will have some "candy" up for grabs!
