My 1st Candle

I saw these candles on Maria's blog a while ago and was refreshed by how lovely they were when she made one for Vicki's Birthday and I just had to have a go, it is Dave's mam's birthday on Thursday so I thought I would give it a go and this is my first attempt and may I say it looks very good, I am very impressed and it is so easy too, which is even better and after speaking to Maria today, I have found out you can put text and photo's on, how good it that :)
I am going to make a card to match and see if I can add some text

This is so cute, Gina! The little bear looks so sweet on there, and a matching card would make a wonderful gift set. I need to make one of these sometime!!
