Beginning to feel my years

In a very few weeks I will be 60.   This has been flashing in front of my eyes for months now the big 60.   Never really thought I'd make it to 60 don't think I'm tempting fate telling you this.    It is also silly to be bothered by a number recent months have been very good to me.   Work wise things are on the up, retirement is not going on the back burner but having a challenging and interesting role is encouraging me to stay where I am working perhaps 9 months out of every 12.   Just waiting to see.

So with 60 flashing in front of my eyes this card, with an Abe Lincoln quote, came from my hands.

The Sentiment was the starting point, stamped in gold and embossed with fine gold ep.   stamped again onto a post it page cut around to make a mask.   The old couple are another Rogue Redhead Designs stamp, looking through my stash seems there are a lot of stamps there from companies that are no longer in business.   So glad I invested in them when I had the chance.

Well surprise surprise it seems there is just one Challenge this qualifies for; Less is More with their one layer week theme of 'Make a Sentiment the focus'.

I'm so very nearly 60, HELP!


  1. I think this a fabulous sentiment and perfect for our challenge! The big zero birthdays creep up on all of us and I hope you celebrate 60 in style :) Thanks for sharing with us at Less Is More x

  2. Such a true sentiment, and very profound. I love your card - and I hope you have a very, very happy birthday when the day comes round!

  3. Such a true sentiment and I love that image! I fully understand how you feel about milestone birthdays. I remember being young (Just) and thinking that people at fifty were ancient. Then, when I hit the big five O, a while ago, I couldn't believe just how quickly the years had passed by and young 50 felt, albeit, a few more aches and pains! It's not the years, it's the mileage that counts and I wish you a very 'Happy 60th' in advance. Happy crafting :)

  4. Brilliant card Zoe and I am sure you will enjoy being over 60. I have enjoyed it for 14 years so far :)

    Love Chrissie xx
