So many candles...

**** Click HERE for my current GIVEAWAY!! ***** (only need 42 more followers before I can give away my prize!! :))

Happy Saturday!!! It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and I am super excited for fun, family and FOOD!!! We're having Thanksgiving supper at our house this year, since not everyone has seen our new pad yet! I have to admit... I'm a little nervous... I am not much of a cook. It's a good thing my grandma, mom and aunt are already bringing half of the supper!!! 

I have been working on soo many projects lately!! My oldest daughter, Bria, has really grown up lately. Now she'll sit at her table in my craft room and work on "projects" which gives me time to work on mine! She used to just destroy everything while she was in there... I am loving our special alone time while Brittyn naps. PLUS it means I can get twice as many projects done!!! I have a craft sale coming up towards the end of October so I have been working hard to build up my stock of cards. Can't wait to show you all that I have been working on!! :) 

Onto my card...


I used Birthday Bash to cut the candles, then I inked them with Vintage Photo Distress ink and added some glossy accents. The paper came from a Fall stack by Recollections. 


The sentiment came from the Pink By Design set Take The Cake. I added a couple brads and inked around the edges of the sentiment. I also embossed the brown background behind the candles with an argyle embossing folder. 

I hope you like my quick little card!! I have a couple of neat projects coming up that I will show you in a couple days! Can't wait!!
