Here's my project
 featuring :
Vinyl from Cricket Vinyl Supplies 
NEW Limited Edition "GRUNGE" Rumple Ribbon from LoveBug Creations!!

My Vanilla Jar Candle uses Cricut cuts from Doodlecharms and CM Cheerful Seasons. It is a mini Jar candle at only 4 inches  tall so my cuts are less than 2" in height. I used 5 different colors of Vinyl and finished this off with some gorgeous ribbon from LoveBug Creations, a silk flower on top and a gold pearl.
I am giving away some yummy ribbon to one lucky person!! Wohoo!!
How does 2 yards of Brown, 2 yards of Black and 2 yards of Cream sound?
Just be sure to leave me some LOVE below!!! Winner announced NEXT Wednesday for my blog candy.
Your next stop is the Fantabulous Amy!!  
Make sure to visit all the stops along the way and when you get done, make sure you link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post!!

  1. Connie,
    I love the candle! In fact, that may be my very first vinyl project. I need a house warming gift for my parents and think their new street number would be fun on a set of candles. Thanks for the inspiration!
    Sure would love to win that ribbon....can you ever possibly have too much ribbon? I think not!
