Birthday Candles

I have taken another little break from blogland lately.  My youngest daughter, Allie, and I have been pretending we have a little side business with a small junque store booth.  Here is a picture of our booth:

I have a few cards on the old screen door up against the curtain.  Seems like it wouldn't take much time, but we have to find things for it, keep it straightened up, figure out how to display things so people buy them, etc.  Yesterday the soap box and cart sold so we need to go to the store and figure out how to fix the items that were placed on the floor.  It is sooo much fun!

I have still been making cards though - it is still my favorite hobby.  I needed some more birthday cards and came up with this one:

I used the following DRS Designs images:  Birthday Candle Burst, One More Candle Greeting, and Starry Background.   I sponged the bg to make brighter (Summer Sun - SU!).  I wanted this one to be super festive.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
