paper candle card

Today I'm sharing an easy and cute paper candle birthday card for a friend. Use your favorite scrapbook paper to create these fun rolled paper candles, and place some twine inside for the wicks!

When I first found out about this birthday blog hop for the lovely and oh-so-talented Kimber McGray, I started thinking about the first time I met her and how long I've known her, and honestly, I couldn't pin-point with complete accuracy either one of those things.  I don't remember the first time I met her, and I'm not exactly sure how long I've known her because Kimber is just one of those people that is so friendly and fun to be around that she makes you feel like you've known her forever.  We could have been best friends since kindergarten for all I know. =)

I've also admired her style for as long as I can remember.  Her clean, simple, but totally clever and adorable work has always been some of my favorite.  I love everything I see that she creates and she has been inspiring me for many years.  So...


Happy 40th birthday to one of the sweetest, friendliest, funniest, and most talented crafty girls out there!  Hope your day is awesome girl--go crazy!
