Happy Birthday....or Do You Reemember When?

 Another look at my card!
 A closer look at my image!
 A ribbon and bow accent!
 The inside of my card!
Today is my birthday and I am suddenly feeling very old. It seems like only yesterday that I was a teenager getting ready for a special dance or date. Now, suddenly, I realize how quickly the years have rolled by. My life has been full of blessings, with enough heartache along the way to realize that I need to appreciate each moment, each memory, each blessing. This card with the lovely image from THE PAPER SHELTER . She is called "She's Charming". I am not sending a birthday card to myself, but rather will have sent it on to someone else. I hope it will bring them joy! I hope your day is filled with blessings and  you enjoy what today brings! 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:


My Song:  Alan Jackson
Remember when we vowed the vows and walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
We lived and learned, life threw curves
There was joy, there was hurt
Remember when
Remember when old ones died and new were born
And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
We came together, fell apart
And broke each other's hearts
Remember when
Remember when the sound of little feet
Was the music we danced to week to week
Brought back the love, we found trust
Vowed we'd never give it up
Remember when
Remember when thirty seemed so old
Now lookin' back, it's just a steppin' stone
To where we are, where we've been
Said we'd do it all again
Remember when
Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won't be sad, we'll be glad
For all the life we've had
And we'll remember when
Remember when

Happy belated birthday! Mine was on Wednesday (15th) and I know exactly what you're saying about feeling old and wondering where all the time has gone! This was my landmark AARP/Medicare birthday, lol ... so I feel your pain!
