Fall is in the Air

Happy Monday everyone!! It's time for a new challenge at Stamps R Us and today's theme is... Autumn/Fall and Robyn's Fetish is sponsoring the challenge!  For today's creation I decided to alter and Mulled Cider candle using this fun Apple Cider image!  The candle comes with a round plastic top...perfect for decorating!  I used a wood grain ef for the bg and the circles are cut from nesties.  The sentiment is a $1 stamp I've had for years.  The ribbon, flowers and maple leaf buttons are from my stash.  This gift was so fun and easy to make...maybe I'll  make a few Christmas ones too! :)  Be sure to head on over to the challenge blog for more fabulous inspiration from the DT! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
