Allsorts challenge week 351 - Birthday wishes

Good morning, challenge week 351 and Kevin is the host this week and his theme is 
Birthday Wishes.

Our Sponsors this week are Sizzex and this is the lovely prize on offer.

We also have another pair of tickets to 
On to my card

 I have used Penny Black Slapstick/cling - Bright Wishes.
Coloured with Promarkers and then covered with glossy accents.
Sorry can't remember who the papers are, but bought from Sam Taylors.

There were no flames on these candle and I thought it looked a tad strange so I put some on.
Happy Birthday die by Presscut, used quite often lately but I like it.
The image is a PB Stickeroo which I put onto acetate and cut round it.

Mmm, just had a thought, next year I have lots of the male species going 70 and I have just had the idea to use these candles and put on a sentiment something like...
Now you are 70, time to stop burning the candle at both ends!
What do you think?
Answers on a postcard please, no just a yea or nay in a comment will do.

Also if any of you who pass by to look at my blog and you are followers of the series,
Happy Valley
 in last weeks episode a scene was taken at a Crematorium, well I was there last Tuesday and the week before and that is where I will end up when I leave this mortal toil, not for a bit yet, I hope.

Have a great week.

Such a very bright and cheery Birthday card Kath.

It's strange when we see a location we know on TV, the series Granchester is filmed in the village hubby's parents came from so we recognise all the shots. And the location of the Police station in Cambridge (never was a Police station mind you) is adjacent to the college hubby went to.

Hope your weekend is a good one.

Sweet and colourful card Kath.

I don't think you telling any septuagenarian to stop burning the candles at both ends will actually stop them doing it - but you could try!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

A fabby bright card Kath... love how you put it together and gave the candles flames! And that sentiment sounds good for your male nearly 70 cards!

Such a fun and bright card Kath.
During the first episode of Happy Valley we were just saying oh that's there and what have they been in? Waiting for them to turn up at the Council offices on Lawson Road.

Fab. Birthday card design Kath - the candle flames were a definite perfect addition, and your 70's male species card idea is brilliant (you clever lady)!
Have a lovely week - Sylvia xxx

Di said...

Oh I do love this card Kath - so funny :) Wonderful sentiment die and I can see why you love it so much and the whole card is just great. And fancy putting the Stickeroo onto acetate, another little trick to remember - clever! Love the idea about the 70th Birthday sentiment, another clever idea. You're full of them right now!
