January Papertrey Blog Hop

I feel like it has been ages since I was able to join a Papertrey Blog Hop, so I'm happy to be doing the fun....even though it is right near the end.  The Blog Hop inspiration piece felt quite a bit out of my comfort zone and many a card went in the trash on this one.  I'm not in love with this either, but I seem to be in a crafting rut at the moment.  Really hoping I get out of it soon.  The woodgrain candles are my interpretation of the orange ovals in the photo and instead of doing a whole background of wonky turquoise circles, I decided to just make one large one in the middle.  Thanks so much for visiting!  I hope today started off a wonderful week for you.
