A hAnglar stAnglar Christmas

**Don't forget to enter my CANDY ---- Click HERE**

OMG - what a busy time of year we have entered! I love Christmas, but the tasks to get done prior... yeah, happy to give that to someone else to do! LOL.

I ordered a gorgeous hAnglar stAnglar kit when they had them on ebay a few weeks ago (I just love that they are doing that now) and they have been sitting on my stamp rack ever since! So when I saw the Lovely hAnglar Only challenge this week I had to grab them and ink them up!  The challenge is to create a Tea Light card.... and since my little disaster a couple of weeks back, I have bought some tea lights! Yay! So it was a good opportunity to have another go. I search the net for a tutorial to make one in a different format than the last one I made.... but nup, it wasnt to be so I just measured up my tea lights and designed my own.


I used this weeks sketch at Friday Sketchers (#130) for the front of the card and tried to carry through some of the theme to the inside as well. The senitment is a new sentiment and die set (love them!!) available at Tickled Pink Stamps. I just love the shape!



I had heaps of fun making this tea light card! The papers are a mix of SU! and DCWV. The hearts are cut from a Cuttlebug Die "Concentric Hearts", one of those dies that I bought and didnt use for a year and then came across it in the drawer one day and haven't put it back since!

Some more challenges for this tea light card are:
Creative Inspirations - Christmas Gifts
Cupcake Crafts Challenges - Light it Up (use a candle)
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club - Use a Die cut
Moving along with the Times - More than one fold
One Sstop Craft Challenges - Use a Christmas Cutie
Stampavie and More - Hearts

I just want to add... if you are looking for hAnglar stAnglar stamps - they sell on ebay direct... you canfind them HERE... and there is a really sweet Christmas kit for sale right now. I have seen some individual stamps for sale on Austrlian ebay for ridiculous prices and there is no reason why you can't buy your stamps direct from hAnglar stAnglar.. be careful what you pay!


**woot woot!! I came in the top 3 - thanks so much girls!!**



And the top 5! Thanks so much Cupcakes :)
