Happy Birthday To Me!


No, no its not my birthday - I just recovered from turning 35 earlier in the month, so I wouldn't want to have another birthday so soon!

This is my entry to the Derwent Coloursoft contest with a birthday theme. The deadline was today.

I was going for a pathetic birthday alone theme, so my idea was to put as many candles as possible on the ooey gooeyist item I could find at the bakery.

Hi Nicole, I really admire your skills in handling colored pencil on pastelbord. I like the contrast very much, it's brilliantly done. Keep up the good work!!! :D

Wow, great composition and beautiful colors! It must have been a challenge getting the candles lit quickly enough. ;)

Thanks Siti!

Thanks Meg - a bit, as my 4 year old REALLY wanted to blow them out and got very upset that the one was burning the table!
