Birthdays are good for you!

Hello lovely people,

It's a packed weekend for me as Dr. Hubby and I went out with some of our neighbours last night and are off to a Halloween party tonight.  I'm excited because I have a new Vampire Fairy outfit to wear...I might post pics in a later post but prepare yourselves because it's a bit risque!

Now to some crafting, and I have to admit to a growing fondness for using large sentiments as the focal point of my cards.
This is partly because they are quicker than colouring an image, but given how much I faff around with my cards it doesn't save me as much time as you'd think!
The main reason is that I think they look really good and allow me to add lots of pretty embellies without risk of overpowering an image.
And in the case of this sentiment, it's just fun and made me smile!

Talking of adding pretty embellies I have used lots of beautiful goodies from The Ribbon Girl on this card and all the links for these are at the end of my post.

I also made my own candles again :-)
