Hiya! BigGrin

In 50 days, I will be celebrating my 65th birthday, but who’s counting?? Well, that would be ME, because I’m really not looking forward to this birthday, at all. Sad I’ve never had a problem w/ any other milestone birthday but this one is really getting to me. Sad It’s like I’ll be receiving a stamp on my body that says “You’re OLD”. Scared And . . . OhMyGod I’ll be getting my Old Age Pension, just to add insult to injury! Sad I’ve been told many a time that I don’t look my age, nor certainly act it BigGrin but, regardless, it is what it is.

I would like to ask a special favour of my Cricut buddies. Would you be so kind as to send me a hand-crafted card for this milestone birthday of mine? It would mean sooooo much to me and would help me tremendously in dealing w/ this birthday. I would love to receive 65 cards. How cool would that be, eh? It would certainly help me commemorate this birthday, instead of dreading it.Smile

My birthday is on July 13th., so you have plenty of time. Smile

You can PM me for my mailing address! Thank you so very much. Wub

Thanks so much, Maria. Wub I PM'd you. BigGrin

My style is whimsical/cutesy but I pretty much like anything. BigGrin Colours:- pinks, blues, purples. But, again, pretty much anything. BigGrin I'm easy! LOL

Yeh, I know what you mean about 65 is just a number, but this number is going to be embossed on my body. LOL

Whenever a birthday would be upcoming --- it didn't matter which one --- my mind set was always:- well, at least I'm not THAT old. e.g. Say, when I was turning 62. I would think:- well, at least I'm not 63. And this went on and on and on, until NOW. This one, for whatever reason, made my thinking stop. Hopefully, when I pass this big yucky one, I'll be back to thinking my old way again. BigGrin

Ladybug.....I so wish I was in a position to do this for you; unfortunately, I am not. I do wish you a very Happy Birthday, though. 65 Isn't so bad. I'm 69. I don't feel it at all....well, I feel it, but I don't. Hope you got that. While I have some health issues that are ongoing, I can still walk, breathe, think, etc.! I don't let those things I have problems with get me down....at least, not so far. I pray I can go on that way for a long time. We never know. It seems the busier you stay, the more you don't think about a lot of things that could make you older, instantly!

Again, wish I was in the position to honor this request.

OMG, you had me ROTFLMBO over that one!!! LOL LOL You should've seen me, Sheila --- I was like a kid in a candy store. I couldn't wait to open it. Soooooo glad I did, cuz it put a smile on my face that lasted all day!!!! It's actually sitting beside me right now and I'm still ooh'ing and aaah'ing over it. BigGrin

I wasn't given the virtue of patience. I've tried but it just escapes me. BigGrin

The way I look at it is this:- each time I receive a card ---- it will be given a LOT of attention and I can ooooh and aaaah over it, rather than opening one after the other.

That's MY story and I'm stickin' to it!!! LOL LOL


p.s. Can't wait to receive yours!! Wub
