We're going on a bear hunt over at Crafty Calendar!

Morning friends......hope you're all well & warm....hasn't the weather
gotten cooler....mind you, I'm not complaining.....I love it!
So for today, as it's the 1st Saturday of the month, we have a new
challenge over at Crafty Calendar and this month the brief is
WE'RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT!.....yep, we want to see a bear 
on your makes! As usual, any & all makes are welcome just so
long as you stick to the theme & you might just be the lucky winner
of a fabby prize from this months sponsor:
For my DT make I had a go at stamping on a candle....well, not actually
ON the know what I mean lol! I stamped onto tissue
paper, coloured the image then placed the image just where I
wanted it, covered with wax paper then used my heat gun to melt
the image to the candle......easy! For my first go, I'm quite chuffed
with it but let me tell's sooooo addictive.....I think everyone
I know might well be getting one for Christmas!!!!
Rightio, that's it for today....I'm planning a lazy-stay-at-home
weekend.....the kids are all shattered and sooo out of routine so are having
 a nice, long sleep in.....I love those kind of days, don't you? A nice, quiet 
morning while they sleep then lots of laughs & nice food when they're
all up...........or home from work!
Thanks for calling today.....have a lovely weekend!
