Thanksgiving hostess gift

I bought a candle on sale at Ac Moore- green apple scent and decided to give it to my sister in law as a hostess gift because she is hosting the Thanksgiving dinner this year at her home (We take turns- my Mom & Bruce, Me & my hubby, Nina & her husband). This is the first candle I ever decorated with a stamped image.
 I covered part of the candle with scrapbook paper that I ran through my xyron 900 (I got the xyron Creatopia from my Mom last yr- still have not opened it bc I am still trying to use up all the adhesive cartridges I have for the 900.). I stamped an inky antics stamp on a bazzil smooth cardstock sheet and colored it with Copic markers. I wrote "Eat Ham!" on the turkey sign. I think if I was a turkey I would protest for ppl to eat ham. lol Wouldn't u?

I will enter this stamped gift in the following challenges:

Baby Jimmy's Baptism card

I made this card using this week's sketch from Cupcake Craft Challenge. The stamp of the adorable bear is from Stamps N More. I used DCWV paper and copics. The bear imaged is popped from the card too.

I plan to enter this card in the following challenges:

Snowy Wolf Card

I made this stamp using a Repeat Impressions UM wolf stamp. I also put on the card some "snow" so it is dimensional and perfect to give for the holidays- vellum has snowflakes on it too. Used my copics for coloring the stamped image.
Defenders of Wildlife use the wolf as their symbol- they fight to preserve America's wildlife and their habitation. Don't forget to protect wildlife by asking your legislators to ban leg hold traps and aerial hunting. Aerial hunting is when disgusting cowards fly in helicopters and shoot wolves (and other wild animals) in the USA (esp. Alaska).

Deer & Foe Card

Hi! I made this card using a Repeat Impression UM stamp. I used Copic markers to color it. I also used some of my stash up- from my scrap paper organizer (I organize it by color).
BTW- in keeping "green" I have a paper bag by my trash can at all times in my craft room that I throw all my paper and cardboard waste into so I can then put it with my recyclables. So, don't just throw out all that paper waste you have as a paper crafter- recycle it.

This card will be entered in the following contests for this week.

Liam's Christening card

I just made this card for my friend's new baby's Christening. I used a Greeting Farm stamp for the deer- I think that's whose stamp it was from. I used DCWV paper. I used mini McGraw circle punches and scallop scissors. I used two ribbons- both the same color from Berwick. I also used copic markers.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Sending u a Cup of Love Card

I just made this card using a really cute clear stamp set from Inky Antics that I received free from Jackie today. I love their stamps and designs! I was so happy to receive this generous gift! So of course I wasted no time going into my crazy craft room to make a card. I am going to give it to me husband's Aunt Margie tomorrow for her birthday. I used the Inky Antics Teacup mouse set #1, DCWV Pocket full of Posies paper from my stash, copic markers, and Sugar dust (covered the stamped image with it) from Stamp La Jolla. The sugar dust made the photo look like it's glowing. lol Inside reads Sending You a Cup of Love (stamp from the set). I used my big Paper Shapers punch to make the scalloped circle bordering the circle punched image.
I hope to enter this card in the following challenges:
