Solos 65th Birthday Card

Most of us don't get too excited about adding another year as we get older, but I've noticed an interesting phenomenon. With older already-retired adults reaching their 60's who have to pay for their own health insurance in our county, they look forward to Medicare at age 65. There is only one plan available in our rural county and it costs over $1300.00 every month! Even worse, it has such a huge deductible it doesn't pay for anything. So I made a masculine birthday card celebrating the BIG 65 using the large Solos number stamps for 6 and 5.

I cut out the large circle and made a circle frame using Cricut Explore. it left a space large enough for any of the large numbers to show. I gold embossed both numbers.  You can use my cut file if you'd like to have a window large enough for these solo number or anything else.

Thank you for visiting! May you have a blessed day!

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Dragonfly Journeys #121 - stars and stripes
Seize the Birthday - birthday plus add sequins

Jeremiah 31:3 (WEB)
Yahweh appeared of old to me, saying, 
Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love: 
therefore with loving kindness have I drawn you.

365 Promises of God - Promise #188: My love for you will last forever.
