Week 4 - The Craft Barn Quotes & Lyrics Challenge

It's week 4 already on the Craft Barn challenge. Is it only me that finds each year seems to disappear faster than the previous one?

This week's words to conquer are marriage and/or age. I have set myself an extra challenge throughout the duration of this challenge by making two postcards each week - one for a lyric and one for a quote. For my current lyric I have chosen Nina Simone's "Marriage is for old folks", a song that I wasn't familiar with until now.

For "age" I have used, in this centenary year, words from "For The Fallen" penned by Laurence Binyon in 1914 and a poem we are all familiar with as it is spoken at Remembrance Day services each year.

I'm always impressed when someone makes TWO entries. I find it hard enough to make just one. These are both beautiful and the colors are SO vibrant.
