If you have hopped here from Diane's Hi and welcome to the November edition of the Crafty secrets Linky party. This month our challenge was to make anything but a card with the prompt "visions of sugarplums" isn't that just the sweetest saying?
When I was little I thought sugarplums were the sugar covered gumdrop candies, (that I didn't like) and wondered why anyone would have such sticky visions! Fast forward to the age of the "google" and I looked it up to learn that sugarplums were a candy that was quite complex to create and therefore a luxury item. Now that I can understand!
Dreaming of treasures rare and sweet, what conjures up the idea of Christmas wishes more than that?
For the challenge I embellished a decadent scented candle, with velvet ribbon, a handmade tassel and of course jingly bells! A classic Santa image serves as a tag and was cut from the Crafty secrets seasonal vintage image book . I inked the edge in blue and attached it to the bow. The ticket was cut from a tags page found on the Vintage Christmas CD filled with tons of Christmas images to print! Now let me show you how I made that tassel!
Embellish and enjoy!
