A Little Christmas Decor

My computer isnt fixed but I have a temporary loan.  
  Hard to believe December is already  here isnt't it!
Got out the lights but didn't have time to hang them this weekend.
Right now the weather in the desert is absolutely beautiful! 
I do not want to go to work I want to be out riding and gardening. Thought I would
share a pic of my pretty peach colored hibiscus blooming right now.

 Better get to our new challenge... Friends of Speedy TV is challenging
 you to make a Christmas Card or project. Who doesn't need some 
of those right now? I needed a little something Christmas to put in
 my bathroom. It is vintage all in off whites and creams, needs some Christmas color.

Did a little digging  in my craft bins and found these little wooden candle holders.
 I painted them  burgundy, then used some crackle medium followed
 with a coat of cream paint. Used the poinsettia and holly images to create 
some simple embellies for them. After stamping several of each I colored
 them and cut them all out. The poinsettias are layered and formed 
a little then attached onto the holder along with a little sheer ribbon.

 A quick and easy project to give a little pop of color.
 Be sure to stop by and see all the Great creations my 
talented teammates have to inspire you to join us.

The winner will take home this set....

These are just beautiful. I thought about doing a candle with poinsettias (it is on my to do list) but your candle holders are superb.

Hi, Davi! thanks for visiting my blog today. So glad you did, because I've enjoyed browsing all the wonderful goodies on your blog, too. Such pretty projects and creations! First - LOVE your incredible nature art - the coral ruffled hibiscus - mmm scrumptiously beautiful! Ours always freeze back in the winter, even tho we are in central Florida. Your crackled candleholders are amazing! I am inspired to copy your idea for next Christmas - it's always fun having a pretty table and mantel, isn't it? Thanks for the inspiration this morning!
