This week it's Kathy's challenge at Daring Cardmakers, which is entitled How Many Candles -
make a Birthday Card with at least one candle on. We also have a prize up for grabs this week for one lucky winner - we are joining in the celebrations for the launch of Funky Hand latest Papercraft Factory CD, 'Happy Happy Birthday '

Our lucky random draw winner will receive a copy of this fabulous, brand new CD Rom!

To be in the draw you must:

1. Make a card for this week's challenge and leave a link so we can see it.

2. Add links to your blog mentioning to your readers about Funky Hand and Daring Cardmakers .

3. Enter your card for no more than FIVE other challenges

The DCM team have all used Funky Hand papers from the Happy Happy Birthday CD to make their cards this week so you'll see what it's all about, but of course you may not have any (yet), so you can use anything you like.
