I decorated a Candle lol

Well if that was Christmas roll on the New Year,O/H and grandaughter Holly were taken ill with this cough and sickness bug going around so just me and daughter for Christmas Dinner.Grandaughters came Christmas night to open their presents here and have a sleepover-then Boxing day SON/DIL took me and grandaughter for a chilly walk round East Park with grandson Jozef and dog Bramble.O/H is feeling slightly better today after almost three days in bed.Hope you all enjoyed and had a better Christmas.We have had none of the snow forcast yet but just rain today.
This is my first decorated candle and quite pleased with how it went but next time more colour!Not sure of the image as no longer have stamp just the stamped image(which I coloured with promarkers) found in my stash from about three years ago-even bought the candle, then chickened out lol.

I love your candle Carol, such an adorable image.
I'm sorry to hear that your Christmas was rather spoiled by illness, I had the dreaded bug for over a week just before Christmas, still coughing now.
Take care and make sure you don't catch it.

What an adorable candle, I haven't tried this technique yet but you have given me some inspiration to have a go soon. Hope your family soon feel better, we had the same thing a week before Christmas and it lingers a bit.
Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year.
