How Many Candles?!

Since the snow is becoming worse by the minute around my area - I set myself a challenge this morning when I got up. To enter five or more challenges with one card, and since I wouldn't be going anywhere important, I gave myself all day.

So here is the card..

And here are the challenges I would like to enter:

×Polka Doodles - Week 50 - Age Related
How many candles? - When you're little, the older you get the more candles you see appear on your cake, then you get to the age when thats just gets impossible.

×Bah Humbug - Challenge 46 - Feeling The Blues
One of my favourite colours - I couldn't say no. Blue patterned papers and blue clothes on  the cute little girl.

×If the shoe fits - FF#59 - get Krafty
I love Kraft cardstock - I use it as a card base for most cards, I find it matches everything. As usual I have used it as a card base and to mat and layer my tag.

×Allsorts - Week 83 - Free & Easy - Anything goes
This has been made to keep in my stash until that birthday arises when I may have forgotten to make a card.

×Penny Black at Allsorts - December Challenge - Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder
My favourite? Cake! Cake, cake and more cake. I also love the colour blue. And I have been using a lot of glitter on cards lately, this one is no exception.

×Penny Black Saturday - Week 132 - Recipe: 3 papers, 1 ribbon, 1 charm
Two blue patterned papers and one black and white. 1 white ribbon, and 1 heart charm. Lovely.

×StampFairy - First Ever Challenge - Glitter or Stickles
I used Star Dust stickles to add some glam to my cake icing.

Thats all for now - I may be back for a look at Mojo, though. xo
