Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to my very talented and craft loving friends.

It's the 1st of the month and time for another challenge over at
Our host should have been the lovely Jackie but she has left our DT  so I expect Diane our lovely team leader will take over.
We kept the the theme Jackie chose and would like to see on your creations.
 Things With Wings.

So I decided to decorate a Battery Operated Candle for my DT work.

The images I die cut from Carnation Crafts dies, and glued to the candle then I painted them with glossy accents to make them glossy.
The challenge runs to the end of the month please pop over to the challenge blog to see the lovely creations made by my DT friends.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
I really appreciate each and every visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

This is fabulous and so pretty. Didn't know you could get battery candles, I've only come across small tealights.

Chris said...

What a great idea Jenny, I've seen many decorated candles but not thought of decorating a battery operated one- it looks gorgeous!

Hi Jenny this is a stunning project. I love it. What a lovely idea to decorate a candle. Take care. Hugs Jackie

This is a wonderful idea and it is beautiful. Using a battery operated candle allows it to burn while keeping the lovely design intact. You are a genius. I love this so much and if it's okay I would like to make these for gifts at Christmas with a Christmas theme.

Now that’s is a nifty idea as you don’t have to worry with it not being a real candle. Looks really nice and the glossy finish just adds that little bit of extra omph. Hugs Mrs A.
