Candles

Well after not being in time to post a few cards for the challenge at Less is More, I decided to really stretch myself, with of all things Doodling!!!!!!, I can't even draw a straight line, but after looking at all the beautiful entries this week, I thought come on, you can't give up.

Soooooooo this is my card, it is so childish that I thought the best thing to do is use my 'puter to write the sentiment and using a childish font, makes it look better somehow LOL.

The card is an ivory hammered card, I drew the candles with a pencil, coloured in with my "professional" Reeves Water Colour Pencils, very amateurishly, then as it was so bad I added the font KidsFirstPrintFont, just right!!!!!!

This just shows that I really can't doodle!, but had to enter it all the same - SORRY! It should give you a laugh though, hopefully!

Hi Faith, I think your card is great, the way the flames dance on top of the candle is brilliant and your choice of font is spot on, super card.

A couple of doodled lines would have done, but you've drawn the whole card Faith!
Most ambitious!
Great choice of font too!
Thanks so much
