Slipping through my fingers...

I have made this next card for Cupcake Craft Challenges, their theme this week is 'Number Cruncher'.

I was going to make a card with an accountant, maths teacher or something similar on the front and then I remembered that Lianne, my eldest daughter, will be fifteen on the 27th July and therefore decided to make a card with '15' on the front instead.

I am going to put the lyrics from 'Slipping Through my Fingers' by Abba on the inside, as follows:

Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness
And I have to sit down for a while
The feeling that I'm losing her forever
And without really entering her world
I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter
That funny little girl

Sleep in our eyes, her and me at the breakfast table
Barely awake, I let precious time go by
Then when she's gone there's that odd melancholy feeling
And a sense of guilt I can't deny
What happened to the wonderful adventures
The places I had planned for us to go
(Slipping through my fingers all the time)
Well, some of that we did but most we didn't
And why I just don't know 

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see what's in her mind
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
She keeps on growing
Slipping through my fingers all the time 

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
And save it from the funny tricks of time
Slipping through my fingers...

Slipping through my fingers all the time
