Fork Handles

Morning all!  When I made this card for the Less is More OLC challenge of Three, I was so tempted to make it four.  Hands up who remembers the Fork Handles sketch from The Two Ronnies?  Classic British comedy, and it still makes me chuckle.

Showing my age aren't I?  Well, I am allowed to today as it's my birthday and I'm celebrating by not being at work, wonderful!  We might take a trip to the cinema this afternoon to see Ice Age 4 (ooh the decadence, cinema in the daytime, lol).

Anyway, here is my card for the One Layer challenge:

The sentiment is Hero Arts and the candle was a magazine freebie from ages ago.  Light colour wash with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and all done.

Thank you to all my bloggie friends who have sent cards and best wishes - you really know how to make a girl feel all warm and fuzzy.

Hugs Sxx

Oh happy birthday! Yes, it's been a birthday week for us too - nephew (6), niece (9) and DH (not saying, but fork handles are firmly in the family vocab... ;-) and guess what they all wanted as a birthday treat? Yup, a matinee performance of Ice Age 4. I hope you went, and I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Scrat ROCKS!
Dear little card by the way.
