I was wondering what it was made from as I too thought it maybe metal. A warming fireside ornament Astrid to light up our way into Winter. Warm Hugs Tracey xx

Fabulous and creative use of those travel bag contents, Astrid! This is a gorgeous lantern that can decorate your home throughout the winter. I love the colors and texture, and you had me at the snowy background on the wood pieces. Your use of the acetate is so clever, and makes this glow beautifully when illuminated! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
