Not really Old, Just Mature

Ok I'm in a bit of a weird mood today. You see I was looking for something, and ended up finding a few older pics of my girls. As I'm sure you've guessed I never did find what I was looking for.

I got to thinking as I made my way through all the pics that I really can't believe they are all grown up ALREADY, and with children of their own.

WOW, times flies by so fast these days.

Now I have never been one to think about how old I am, or if I'm *Acting my age* whatever that is suposed to be, because as we were growing up my mom who always said "you're as young as you feel",never looked or acted *her age*. She was always a hoot and I think we kept her young too. We all used to call her Lucy... because she was as nutty and funny as Lucille Ball. LOL
But I did consider it today while looking at these pics. then I got this e-mail.

Talk about good timeing.

So here gos

We're not old, Just mature
Today at the drugstore, the clerk was a gent
From my purchase this chap tool off 10 percent,
I asked for the cause of the lesser amount,
And he answered, "because of the seniors discount.

I went to McDonald's for a burger and fries
And there once again got quite a surprise,
The clerk poured the coffee which he handed to me
He said "because you're a senior, the coffe is free"

Understand I'm not old, I'm mearly mature
But things are really changeing I'm sure,
The newpaper print gets smaller each day
And people speak softer....I Can't hear what they say

My teeth are my own ( I have the receipt)
Need my glasses to identify the people I meet,
The silver In my hair has been bleached by the sun
And OH! all the damage that clorine has done

My car is all paid for... not a nickle is owed
Yet a kid Yells "old duffer, get off the road",
My car has no scratches.... not even a dent
But I still get this hassle from a punk that's hell bent.

The steps on the houses they're building today
Are so high, that they take my breath away,
And the streets are much steeper then ten years ago
That should explain why my walking's so slow.

But I'm keeping up on what's hip and what's new
And i think I can still dance a "Mean Boogaloo",
I'm still in the running, of this I am sure
Because, I'm not really Old, I'm Just Mature.

Youth is a gift of nature
But Age is a work of art

Well I think that about summs up my thought for today, so I think I'll just go "BOOGIE" on out to the other room and take my aches and pains meds. and get something done today. LOL

Ok I'm just kidding about the meds, but not the aches and pains.

Hope everyone has a super day

It's still X-mas cards for now

I messed this one up, but I still think it looks ok.
I used my Versa mark pad to stamp on all of the white c/s, added the clear embossing powder, set with my heat gun. I did this several times to get the right effect, and on the last time I add some glitter before heat setting. (I used the fine embossing powder, and not the utee) as I have none. BUT I still like how it turned out none the less. It still pops out nicely

Just sponged on some avacodo green, added a circle cut from a piece of X-mas paper. I added some sparkle to the star, added the sentiment and red ribbon.

White c/s with a blue chalk added, some snowflakes, cute snowmen , a border made with some bric a brac

A small Christmas money card.
Some vellum with snowflakes on it, stampin up's tree and 'All spruced up' quote, a few eyelets and gold elastic string.

Getting a head start!!!!!!

I'm trying to get a head start on the X-mas season this year, unlike last year where I was scrambling to get all my cards done in time.
These ones are quite simple, but I have a few in the works that are new to me, techinque wise, and hopefully they turn out ok.

This card was easy peasy because I just drew the gift with the bear peeking out, added a few embellishments and some sparkle on the ribbon.

A quich stamp, a scrap piece of wrapping paper from last year as a background, a small piece of felt cut into two small mittens, and some gold string.

I'm sure I've had these letters for way too many years, so I thought why not use them on SOMETHING this year. A bit of X-mas paper trimmed with scalloped scissors, some bling, a piece of ribbon tied into a bow, a candycane, and a little star . Another quick and easy card done.

This card looks so plain, but trust me it's not. What you can't see is that I embossed this whole card, Ifirst did the green and heat embossed that, then the red. I took the flowers and died them a very pretty green to match the card front, and just the tips of the small flowers to match the red.
