Noel Teacher gift


I spent yesterday working on Teacher gifts since my kids get out of school on Friday for the Christmas holidays. I found these candles at our dollar store on sale for $0.75! They had santas cookies, cinnamon, and christmas holly scents so I got 2 of each since I have 6 teacher gifts to make. This first one is Santas cookies and I paired it with last years Dashing dp. I used the ornmanent from the Noel stamp from Big on Christmas and popped it up.
I made a matching card using Taylors sketch again. I love this sketch so you will be seeing a couple more!LOL! I used the Noel stamp from Big on Christmas and colored with copics. I used the horizontal slot punch and added river rock ds ribbon to the image. I paired the image with the Dashing dp to match the candle and sponged all edges using river rock ink.

We didnt get to make candy yesterday b/c it wasnt the right weather so we are going to try again Wed. The weather has been so crazy lately. It was freezing one week, raining the next and this week it will be in the 70's all week!! It was 78 degrees today!! No wonder everyone around here is sick!LOL! Have a great day!

I love what you did with the candle! I bought a Yankee candle a while ago thinking I'd alter it somehow, but I just never knew what to do with it. Thanks for the inspiration!!

So cute Shannon...I've been looking at that Dashing paper and I really need to bring it out!

Great coloring as usual!
