Three New Things ... WOW!

Well, happy Wednesday, and time for a HoneyBee Showcase piece! I've done a candle facelift as part of our first ever Motivational Monday at BettyBee's Buzz! Rosemary gave a great tutorial, and this is my take! I used a darker candle, and it smells SO good! Check out the link to find out how to create one of your own!

Next we have brand new images at Digital Delights by LoubyLoo, and they are so cute for the holiday season! My image is Candy Cane Ginger, and I printed her out in reverse, so I could have ginger bread twins! I colored them with Copics, glittery gel pens, and water color pencils. The paper is Core'dinations and Me & My Big Ideas. The ribbon is Offray and the flowers are Wild Orchid.

Last, but not least, is a color inspired centerpiece for Passionately Artistic. This pumpkin is an artificial one that came from a hobby store, and was easy to cut. The flowers arranged in it are traditional fall bushes with touches of rich, deep red ~ to match the accents of my living room. The new Thanksgiving cartridge for the Cricut has beautiful scrolled sentiments, and "Give Thanks" was just perfect to accent the front of the pumpkin. The leaf was heat embossed in russet, orange and gold. The cat tails are real!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are having a beautiful fall, and I wish you lots of creative mojo!
Come see us at BettyBee's Buzz!
