Playing with my grand daughter today
She had never done shrink art
She watched it shrink through the oven window
(telling me she thought there should be a stove
with a see through top so you wouldn't
have to bend down to look in)
 with many squeals and
ooooo and ahahah
Then she put together the necklace and is very proud of it

MFP SF&F 276

The challenge this week is to have a candle on the front of the card
I have no MFP candles so I cut my candles and flames out of print paper
The holly boughs and saying however are MFP From the stamp set Create with Pine  Boughs
The poinsettia are Petaloo stickers

There are many bits and pieces in this set and you can do much creating

Come play with us
