time again to reveal the TT challenge for this week and show you what I've been up to. At this time of year, all over the world, Light festivals are taking place, usually linked to a religious festival. Having taught primary school children, this is one of the themes that caught my imagination many moons ago and has facinated me since.
The Christian religion has many different light festivals from St Lucia's day in Sweden to St. Martins Day in Holland and here there will me many candlemas services throughout Advent.
Light festivals are not exclusive to the Christian religion though, Jewish people celebrate Hanukka, Hindu's have Diwali, Loi Krathong is celebbrated in Thailand, Chaharhanbe Suri in Persia, Fete de Lumieres in France, Kobe Luminarie in Japan and the list goes on and on.
How wonderful that despite such culteral differences, the same things delight us.
Well enough of the lecture .......... getting carried away with myself there : )
This weeks TT Design is
Box was made from Bazill cardstock and stamped with the Papermania chrismas snowflake then embossed with Stamp n Stuff winterwonderland from The Craft Barn. You cant see so well on the photo but it gives a lovely iridescent sparkly finish.
A little ribbon and a charm and the outside is done
When you open it out the same stamping and embossing is on the inside along with a little Christmas tree. I got the tree from Yorkshire trading and it cost about £1.60 and was the cheapest tat you can imagine
I hope you can join us at TT this week, it's a great theme to the challenge. Hope it brings a little light into your lives.
