Candy Alert!

I've decided it's time for some blog candy! It was my 40th birthday two weeks ago today, and I never got to celebrate properly, because we were travelling back from the US that day and were utterly exhausted by the time we got back home. Yesterday, DH and I finally got round to a joint "my birthday-his birthday-our anniversary" outing (Ansel Adams exhibition in Edinburgh, followed by a meal in a lovely cosy restaurant), but I still feel the occasion needs to be marked a little more - after all, it's a reasonably significant birthday.

Here's what you can win:

I am also going to make a mini book using my shiny new Bind-It-All which DH kindly gave me for my birthday (don't worry, it'll not be the first effort, I will practise until I produce something decent that I'm happy to give away. You may therefore have to be a little patient while waiting for your candy to arrive, but it shouldn't be too long.)

What I would like you to do:

I love flowers! I'd therefore like you to make something that has flowers on it. It does NOT have to be a birthday card (let's face it, it's a little late, really), it can be anything at all and if you want to tie it in with other challenges, that's absolutely fine by me. Leave me a comment with a link to your creation by Thursday 24 April, and I will draw a winner sometime Friday afternoon. Oh, and if you wouldn't mind posting about this give-away on your own blogs, that would be great!

Thanks for taking part, and good luck!
