WHAT???!! You're How Old???!!.....

Hello everyone and a very happy Father's Day to all the Dads, Grandpas, Brothers, Uncles and Sons in Law, who are surely being showered with the love of their kiddos, young and old today.
My card is for a dear Triathlon friend who's turning 50 y/o next Saturday, we've known each other for about 11 years and, during my first attempts at the sport of Triathlon, she was an important part of this process for me, she loves cats and the color yellow so, this card is for her, Happy Birthday, Janine!!!!!

This card is made with one of the fabulous images from Les Chats Russes from Katzelkraft, love those kitties. I stamped the image onto Canson 140lb. water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter. The pattern paper is from my stash.
I needed a sentiment that would reflect the priceless expression of concern of this cat but I didn't have any that would do it for me so, I created my own by die cutting the word bubbles and writing my greetings inside.  My friend has been dreading turning 50 for about a year now, Ha!!!, like that is so bad, sheeesh!! I'm 16 years her senior, now.....that's scary, LOL!! and I don't care. 
"Age is a matter of the mind.....if you don't mind, it don't matter", words to live by.
Anyway, I'm sending this card to her tomorrow and I know I will get a phone call to thank me first and then, to let me have it!!!  Ha, ha, ha!!!
This is a picture of the inside, also funny, just so she knows how much I care, besides, isn't 50 the new 30? because I know 60 is the new 40, and that's THAT!!!!!

I'm entering this card to the Seize the Birthday "Anything goes".

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
