Welcome to Day 8 of the 12 Days Of Christmas Blog Hop!

This is a 12 day hop filled with anything and everything Christmas.

If you are coming from Theresa, you are right on track.  If you just came across my blog and would like to hop along, please start over with Lisa as she is our lovely hostess.

There are some fabulous prizes and great sponsors for this hop so please make sure you follow the requirements for each day.

Here is the lineup in case you get lost...

Because my friends and I decided no "presents", I knew these clutches with the candles would be perfect for them.  I did start making these back in July when I was in a Christmas In July Blog Hop.  I have been making these clutches like crazy the last few days for since I will be seeing a lot of my friends in the next couple of days.

I found the template here.
Paper, ribbon and brad come from my stash
Flowers are I Am Roses and Recollections
Lindy Stamp Gang Starburst Spray in Cathedral Pines Green
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Fired Brick

Another view.

I could fit 2 small candles placed on their sides.

I'm going to give a big prize away to one lucky person.  The prize will be a secret for a couple of posts (the last day lol).  To win my grand prize, you must comment on all 12 days of the hop.

Reminder that some days may have individual blog candy besides my grand prize.

Please remember to stop back tomorrow for a new Christmas project.

Your next stop is Anita.
