Another year older

I have talked about this lady before on my blog, she is in her 80's and she and her husband have had many health problems and they had to move about an hour away to an Assisted Home, so we don't get the opportunity to see them much anymore but a couple weeks ago their daughter brought them to church and you could just tell how happy everyone was to see them again.

While talking to her, I mentioned how good she looked and she said she doesn't feel it, she says she just feels old, so when I saw this sentiment in my stamps I thought that will be perfect for her and hope it brings a smile to her day.  I embossed it with gold embossing powder to match the gold piece.


Most of this card came from my collection of unused products from other cards.

Pink patterned piece is a cut from Cricut machine
Sentiment tag from Making memories packaging
Spellbinders -- Long classic rectangle small die (gold)
Paper Smooches -- Happy Birthday sentiment (embossed w/gold embossing powder)
Paper flowers
Gold Brads
Embossing folder


Thanks so much for stopping by today,
Have a great weekend,

Connie
