Crafty Sentiments New Release Blog Hop, Come Join Us.

WARNING this post is picture heavy!!

Good morning all. 
Have you all enjoyed the last five days of Crafty Sentiments previews? Well the wait is over the stamps are finally available today and you can get them HERE.

Today we are finishing with a blog hop so if you are a regular visitor or just stumbled across my blog you will want to go back to the main Crafty Sentiments Blog to start the hop so you don't miss any of the wonderful creations along the way.

For my project I decided to make a Lumière using a battery powered tea light. I printed four of my images onto tracing paper, I was going to colour them but decided against it plus I thought the colour would be lost when the light was on. 
Be warned I took lots of photo's to show the lit and unlit effects of each side, I had to take the lit photo's in a wardrobe to get the light to show up. When you want a dark overcast day I get bright sunshine, never satisfied lol.

Christmas Song

Dressing The Tree

Taking A Nap

Winter Wishes

So as not to leave poor Billy and his sledge out I made a gift tag to go with my gift. I again printed the image on tracing paper which looks lovely in real life but the photo seems to catch more of the backing paper than the actual image. The back of the tag has 'to' and 'from' on it with a sentiment saying 'Sending Love On Christmas Day'
