Autumn Tealight Gift and SWEET STUFF!!!

Happy Monday to everyone and welcome to a brand new week. I hope you had a great weekend and are looking forward to a marvelous week. This was such a wonderful weekend to be outside in the fall-like weather so I used it as a great time to plant 15 Encore azaleas. Can you believe that some that I planted last year are still blooming this late in the season???


Today is my turn to post over at the CutCardstock Blog and I would love for you to have a visit. I found some very inexpensive tealights and they are such a yummy autumn scent but in such a non-pretty packaging. So I decided with a little bit of cardstock and a few embellies that this could be quite a nice little gift. I used Bronze, Fine Gold, and Flame CS from the Stardream Metallic  line at CutCardStock, DP from Memory Box Nightfall paper pad, an embossed chipboard tree and fence, GAR-185, from Southern Ridge Trading Company, metal corners, and organza ribbon.  I have given complete instructions over on the blog, would appreciate your evaluation of my tutorial, and would love to see how you use the project.


I first made this matchbox style box for the tealights to serve as the base for the project.




And this is the finished project which I think anyone would like to receive!!


SWEET STUFF!!!

I have put together a little package of goodies that I think you might like and all you have to do is go over to the CutCardstock Blog and leave a comment. The winner will be selected from the comments on that blog.


Sorry for the terrible picture, but the package includes alot of Fall stuff....ribbons and ribbon tape, 3 sets of stamps, lots of flowers, some metal embellies, and other surprises including two packs of PEEPS!!!! Hope you like it and I would love to know what you think of my tutorial. Remember you must leave a comment on my posting at the CutCardstock blog. Winner will be announced here on my blog on Thursday!!  Thanks and good luck!!!

Thank you so much for coming by today and I hope you have a fabulous week! Until the next time....Big Hugs!!
