Candles, lot of 'em..........

My SIL is celebrating her 70th Birthday!!!  That's alot of candles : )

 This is another new stamp- I could not resist the sale and it was perfect for her Birthday. I colored the image with Copics, added shimmer with Wink of Stella on the candles and the stripes on the hats.

 We spent Christmas in Colorado- the entire family and had a wonderful time celebrating together.  We spent some time hiking through the Colorado National Monument and Arches National Park in Moab.
  Happy New Year to you, and I hope 2016 brings you many blessings!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your SIL will love this. I just love the AI stamps. They are such fun. Christmas in Colorado sounds like such fun! I've been to Arches on our last trip to Utah when one of our sons was working out there. Beautiful country and I hope it was a little cooler than when we were there. We went in August. Talk about HOT! Happy New Year! May 2016 bring you happiness, health and crafty time.

This is adorable! This stamp is on my wish list. I know your SIL will love it. When you get a chance, you should look at the new Die-Versions Asian release that came out today. As soon as I saw it, I thought of you and all your wonderful Asian themed cards.

Happy 2016 Shelly, We spent Christmas in Texas. 6 1/2 inches of snow, and it rarely snows there. Go figure!
My sister lives in Colorado and she got 4 feet of snow. Yikes!
