Taking time to grieve...

I'll be taking some time off from blogging for the next few weeks as I grieve for the loss of my father.  I spent last week caring for him in the last few days of his life and helped him through his last few hours.  It was one of the most difficult things I have ever done and my heart and head are still trying to process and deal with the emotions.  

One of the things that has always helped me is working on art so I will be back in my craft room soon and posting again.  I'm just not ready yet to move to that stage of healing.  Thank you for understanding my friends. May you find peace and joy in this holiday season and hold those you love close to your heart.

December Stamp of the Month Hop - Candlelight Garden

Welcome to the December SOTM Blog Hop where we are featuring the beautiful limited edition Candlelight Garden stamp set!  If you have come here from Dana's Blog you are on the right track.  For a complete listing of all participating CTMH consultants, click HERE.

I decided to use my Shinhan Touchtwin Markers for this card and colored in my flowers on our Watercolor Paper stamped with Memento ink using colors from the Sangria paper collection. I used our Confetti embossing folder on the kraft background piece and then went over each dot with our Gold Metallic Marker - love the effect it achieved! A few paper pieced hearts and a sprinkling of Gold Sequins along with a tiny piece of White Glitter Paper (did NOT photograph well) and I was done!

Candlelight Garden is one of my favorite SOTM sets this year! The mason jar stamp is adorable and I love that you can use either the flower bouquet with it or the candle image.  Too adorable and so on-trend with all the mason jar crafts this year. If you are ready to grab your own December SOTM Candlelight Garden set then visit my shopping site!  Remember - it's okay to get your own Christmas presents so grab this set to stuff your stocking!

Now hop on over to Jean's Blog and see what she has created to share with us today!
