I'm not a Senior Citizen.....

Here in New Zealand when you turn 65 you are eligible to receive national Superannuation and are classed as a Senior Citizen.  One of the leaders at work is turning 65 shortly and I was asked to make her a card..... She is always saying she is NOT going to be a Senior Citizen... but stay young and frivolous!!!!!!!!!  ( me too when I make this age in 10 years)

So I decided to do a humorous card ... and where better to find the perfect image... than Bugaboo Digital stamps.    I never fail to find something just perfect there... and this was no exception...

65th Birthday


I changed the sentiment to suit what Barbs always says!

I used Copics to colour the image and some pretty Summer PP's.  The design is loosely based on a sketch from My Favorite Things.   

Entering this into Simon Says Stamp ~ anything goes Challenge.

Tonight Daylight Saving Time starts in NZ... springing forward one hour!  This really is the sign that summer is on its way.  Hubby put up the umbrella on the deck and we went out an bought tomato plants, lettuce plants, cucumber plants and pea seeds.  So tomorrow will be out in the garden planting!    Today the temperate was up to 20 degrees ( 68 F) so it's warming up.

Enjoy your weekend all.

Great card Dawn with great adaptations for the occasion :-)
I have lettuces, brassicas and some beetroot in - too cold down hee for tomatoes yet. My DIL is starting my tomaesto plants over in Tga for me :-)
