a Card for today

I just wanted to post this card that I made for my Uncle today. I used the SY-910 Hillbilly Holler Dog stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps. This set is soooo cute, with the sad, little hound dog and three sentiments it can be used for "get well" and "just thinking of you" cards!
I used water color paints to color it in.
Thanks for stoping by and taking a look.

PKS Challenge 36 : 3D Candle

Hi Peachy Friends, 
Here's the challenge for this Friday.
I had a few ideas for this challenge but then when I decided to use this large vanilla candle I knew right away what I wanted to do. I took the PK-132 Twick or Tweet Birdhouse stamp and stamped it in the middle of my paper. Then I stamped the spider web from PK-130 Spider and Web once on the left and once on the right side of the birdhouse. You can't see it from the photos but I then stamped a bird house on the other side of each spider web too. I wanted the houses and webs to wrap around the candle. I was a little short. If  were to do it again, I would stamp one more spider web.

 I used my water color paint on the little bird houses and webs! I used two straight pins to attach them to the candle.
 I then stamped the sweet little ghosts from PK-131 Happy Haunting Ghosts. I then used my hot glue gun to attach a straight pin to the back of each ghost. I stuck them into the candle.

**If you light your candle please be careful that any of your stamped paper images are far enough away from the flame that it does not catch on fire!!

So, if you wish to play along with us this challenge here is the info....

Create a project involving candles. You can wrap them, stamp on them, or anything else your creative minds can come up with!
We'll be awarding "TOP PEACH" to the player who uses their Peachy Keen Stamps this week and  our two runner ups will receive a spiffy badge to display on their blog!
