You Know You're Old When....

 One of my Dad's favourite sayings is "My memory is's just short!". As kids growing up we thought it was funny and it always made us giggle. However, as I am getting older, I am finding more and more truth in that statement and I find myself saying it quite often! 

When I saw the "Memory" sentiment and "Online Olive" stamps from High Hopes Rubber Stamps it reminded me of this saying and how true it is the older I get. I find myself having to make lists either on paper, my phone, or computer to try not to forget things....until I forget which way I wrote the note and where...<smile>. I chose to use this stamp combo for a humourous Birthday card because I can't have enough humourous cards in my stash.  

I stamped Olive, coloured her and her cat friend with Copic markers and cut her out using a square pleated lace die. I chose patterned paper from Carta Bella and cut it to fit my 5.5"x5.5" card base. Bazzill came through with the perfect matching card stock and I cut a layer to fit behind each piece of patterned paper and the stamp. 
Next, I stamped the Memory sentiment and masked off the Happy Birthday from the Swinging Birthday sentiment. They were cut to size and mounted on matching card stock. Some cotton lace ribbon and enamel dots finish off my card.
