"at your age ..."

Well I hope everyone had a lovely christmas and didn't eat too much!  For me I was very good when it came to food - I tend to over eat at christmas (love christmas pudding!) but this time I only had one serving of dinner and dessert!
Stayed away from the craft room the past few days and enjoyed the warmth of the sun (not too hot lately) and wallowed in the garden - with all the rain we have had this year (after nearly a decade of drought) the trees and shrubs are growing like crazy and we can't keep up with the prunning and trimming so I have been helping Neil trying to catch up - very happy to have a neat trimmed garden rather than a jungle :)
This afternoon I made a card following the challenge from CAS-ual Fridays - kraft and twine, followed the sketch from Mojo Mondays #221 and also submitting it for the challenges over at Wee Memories - anything goes and Top Tip Tuesdays - anything goes.

this week at CAS-ual Fridays they are teaming up with Market Street Stamps who provided a free digital stamp (I don't have any Market Street Stamps) so I used the image of the coffee mug as my inspiration and came up with the quote 'at your age drinking too much coffee can cause a latte problems' :)
materials - Bazzill kraft and apricot cardstock, AC cricket cardstock; Jillibean Soup 'watermelon gazpacho' papers; Market Street Stamps 'coffee mug' digital stamp, MFT 'mini banner day alphabet'; Stazon timber brown ink; Crayola colouring pencils; twinery twine; Spellbinders petite scalloped circles large, Creative Memories circle cutter; ribbon.
Thanks for looking.
