February - Whaaat. It can't be! I lost several weeks in January being sick but this is ridiculous. A whole month of this year gone already. Oh my goodness. Well get ready for this - I played Bingo last night and was out until 10:45 pm. I have become a social butterfly!!  Seriously, my SIL has gone before and wanted me to come with her. It was at a Moose place and we did have fun so that is my first public outing.

This card today (using pattern paper) is for my next door neighbor who I think is turning 83. I used SSS wavy scalloped stitches die and the balloon dies from them too. The popped up balloon has wink of Stella to brighten it up. Be kind to one another.
