Peachy Keen "Let's Face it Fridays" Challenge #3

The Peachy Keen Let's Face it Fridays Challenge #3 was to create a home decor item in an autumn theme.  This challenge was really fun.  I recently bought this nice square apothecary candle from Kohls (on sale for $4.99 by the checkout) and I wanted to dress it up.  This candle has 4 decorated sides to it.  I'm sorry that I didn't have time to write up tutorials for this project, however, I will include the recipe for each side of the candle.  Please see the recipe listings at the bottom of this post.

BLOG CANDY DRAWING!
I am excited to offer some great blog candy!  PKS recently released several AWESOME Halloween themed Cottage Cutz dies.  I am so excited to say that the set called Herby is my design.  As a thank you, Kathy sent me some extra Herby Cottage Cutz sets to share with my friends & readers!  For a chance to win this die set PLUS the Cut-Out Pumpkin Faces stamp set ($26 Value), all you need to do is add yourself to my followers listing (if you haven't already done so) and leave a comment on this post.  I will randomly choose one of the entries on Monday. 

Check out the other great projects by the DT members over at the PKS Challenge site HEREIf you have some Peachy Keen face stamps, you can play along with the challenge to win a Cottage Cutz Pumpkin Trio die set!


Side #1 features this Scare Bear and crows.

Interested in creating a 100% Stampin' Up! punch scarecrow?  Check out my tutorial HERE.



Side #2 features Sunflowers and a silly crow perched on top of the candle.

Wow KIM!!! This is SOOO SUPER CUTE!!! I can't get over how cute each and every side is. Great job! Thanks for the inspiration!

Cute candle. Reading the email I didn't realize it was in a jar. That makes it nice because when the candle is gone - you could refill it or use it for something else and keep the artwork.

Thanks for the opportunity for the blog candy as well.

Best wishes,
