After months of talking about it, my sister and I finally picked a night to get together and make some cards. She arrived, we made tea, commented on the miserable wind that evening and headed into my "Rubber Room". Hadn't even managed to pick our cardstock and the power went out!! For four hours. Not to be deterred by a lack of light and the awful sounds of what became a raging blizzard outside, we got out some candles and set to the task at hand. We were pleasantly surprised that our paper/cardstock/ink and cards all looked pretty decent when we could actually see them.
So, here are my "cards by candlelight"...
Another unabashed CASE. I loved this card by Marsha Drain and hardly changed anything but the papers.
Thanks for stopping by!
Punches tally: 3, counting the inside border :)

Now if I had a Sister...this is what I would like to be doing with her...making cards by candlelight!!! Two determined souls that wouldn't let a little thing like "no lights" to put a damper on a fun evening...you are my kind of gals!!!! lol This is just exceptionally sweet and dainty. I love the crispness of the embossing. It is outstanding.
