When my friends and I turned 40, we made a point of finding joke cards about getting older for one another. I wasn’t a card-maker then, but if I had been, I would have made a card like this for the guys in our group.
It would have worked perfectly with all the old age pranks. Of course, now that I’m actually 40-something, it seems less funny: The knees that pop, the hairs that are turning grey, the stretch to get out of bed in the morning. I feel like I could be getting close to that old skeleton. :)
This card is for the new linky party theme, Fall'n for Flair, over at Paper Issues. This super cute Star Wars inspired button is from Shelley Haganman’s etsy shop, A Flair For Buttons.
Here’s a close-up of the card:
