Tuesday Taggers - Celebration of light

This week we are celebrating light with the coming of Advent it is a really exciting time in the Christian calendar and for all those lovers of Christmas but many people of other faiths celebrate at this time of year the beauty of light as the nights are so long and dark. I decided to make aLuminaria and found a tutorial on splitcoast stampers that was just right. I have made mine Christmassy but it could just as easily be an all year round design.

This week we are sponsored by the craft barn who sell this cute little cat stamp from High hopes - he is called Meowy Christmas and is a gorgeous litle thing. Ive also used another high hopes stamp and placed them on opposite sides of the luminaria. The papers Ive used are from last years basic grey wassail collection. The apertures cut with my scalloped oval nesties - swirly vellum, buttons and poinsettas from stash.

Of course it would be far too dangerous to use a real tealight in this so i have a battery operated one inside - but it looks like candlelight.
This is part of a craft pressie so i cannot say any more. It was fun to do and I like the effect.
So If you like little Meowy cat hop on over to The Craft Barn and search under Christmas :0) Pop on over to Tuesday Taggers to see the beauties my fellow teamies have produced too x
I hope this has schedules fine as Im at work and hope you have a great day x
