Dancing Candles

August is a big month for birthdays for my family and friends. (There are 5 birthdays this month! And, ummm, yes! Today is my birthday. :-)
These cards aren't for me, but I hope the recipients will be as excited about their birthdays as the happy, dancing candles seem to be! *smiles*
This is a stamp I've had for years and I always think it makes such a festive birthday card to send to either a man or a woman. The stamp is made by "The Artful Stamper".
It has been a very long time since I've painted with Twinkling H2O's so these were a lot of fun. I stamped with Versamark and embossed with antique gold on watercolor paper. Then I painted with twinkling H2O's. I stamped the image and colored a few images and then cut out random candles and used dimensional foam tape to make some of the candles "pop" right off the page.
The inside sentiment, "The More Candles the bigger the Wish" is from Stampin' Up! and seemed perfect for these inside of these happy dancing candles birthday cards.
Hope you are having a super day!
Until next time,



  1. Hope you have a wonderful birthday. Hugs from Georgia.


  2. Ohh poo. I always do this, every year! I always think that it's closer to the end of the month... with that being said. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jennifer! Sending you warm wishes from the west coast. Hope you've had a great day.

  3. Happy Birthday!!! Yeah, I'm late but I still hope your day was great! I'm hungry again and there's not a donut in the place (nor enough ambition to bake something as I should be contemplating finding the sheets shortly).

  4. Happy belated birthday Jennifer. Candles are so cute and love the dsign of your card. Hope your day was great, I want to come for breakfast and baked donuts, they look wonderful!



Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them.
