Caution - may contain nuts

For this fortnight's challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, Edna has picked O is for Old.

 
So naturally I turned to the La Pashe CD "The Wrinklies" which is crammed to the back (false) teeth with witty images of old people. It was tough choosing which image to use, but I settled on this one because I thought the sentiment worked so well with it. I teamed the decoupage up with some real playing cards and a backing paper from the CD
 

And you see that little brady-clippy thing to the right of the image? Well, that opens up another layer - that little old lady's obviously a poker playing pro.....


And that, my friends, is why this card may contain nuts.

 
Because that one little brad and the braddy-thingy I used with it were from the very first kit I bought from QVC, must be getting on for 20 years ago, I am also sharing this with Use Your Stuff where this week the theme is "Use a brad or brads".
