Autumn Prayer Candle

Hello and thanks for stopping by!  I have something a little different to share with you.  The other day I created an autumn prayer candle using the Stampin' Up Vintage Leaves Set with matching Framelits Dies.  

I started with adhering a vintage tea dyed doily to the glass candle.  The leaves were stamped in Close to Cocoa, sponged with various inks and cut out using the matching dies.  I did spritz them using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Iridescent Gold.  The tips were glued together then I used a small hole punch so I could string a piece of linen thread through them and wrap the thread around the glass.

To finish the project, a piece of ivory seam binding was wrapped around the jar with a triple loop bow.  The center was accented with an antique brad.

These candles would make great centerpieces on your table or sitting on a shelf.  I've started creating other designs for the holidays.

Stamping has been quite challenging with Pippin.  Just this morning he took off running with one of my sponges ... LOL!

I'm sending prayers to all of those dealing with Hurricane Michael.  Stay safe and see you soon!

Share the Message 2018 Giveaway ...

Hi everyone,

I've been gone for way too long.  Life has been so busy and Pippin is now over a year old!  I thought it was important that I post about 'Breast Cancer Awareness Month'.  Breast cancer, and other types of cancers, have touched so many of our lives in one way or another.  Let us spread the word about early detection and mammography.

To help promote breast cancer awareness month, I will be giving away a Be You Notebook & Pen, Pink Ribbon Heart Key Tag and Notepad with Magnetic Closure.

All you need to do to enter the drawing is be a follower of my blog, like Donna's Designs on Facebook and leave a comment on this post by Saturday, October 13, 2018.

I will select a winner on Sunday, October 14, 2018 using and will give the winner 48 hours to contact me via email.

Please spread the word to your family and friends about October being 'Breast Cancer Awareness Month' and the importance of being screened.  If you know someone dealing with the disease, I encourage you to reach out to them - your support would mean everything.  This is a cause I am passionate about and I'm proud to display my pink ribbon this month.

Good luck and thank you for joining this cause.

Faith . Love . Hope . Believe
