Easter Candle Cover and a Summer Beach Card M5D

Happy Easter week everyone,

I will make this short, because there are lots of great new M5D releases this week, so this post is already long enough.  I hope you enjoy my creations, and please feel free to leave me a comment.  I really love reading them and hearing from my cyber friends

This is a candle cover that I made.  I like displaying candles for each holiday, but don't like having hundreds of candles taking up space, so I decided to make this candle cover that can be removed and re-used again next Easter.  Now, I can make another candle cover for the next holiday and use the SAME candle as I did for Easter.  I am seriously trying to downsize things in my house.   

If you look closely at the sand, you might notice that I used sea salt to add a beachy texture.

Below are the M5D releases for this week
