Zest For Life

Remember when 70 sounded ancient? (Picture grey-haired old ladies in rocking chairs.)  The 70-year-old recipient of this card made her first parachute jump last year, and has a zest for life that would put many people half her age in the shade.  She also likes a tipple, so this Cheers image from Penny Black was ideal.  And what nicer way to beat the heat than with a chilled glass of rosé?

It's for the following challenges:
