Beary Balloon

Hi,

Good news head and arm are now a lot better - knee not so good and apparently according to my lovely OH (he who knows best, well that's what he says !!!), i was a Muppet last night as i went to bed with a cushion under it, thus putting more pressure on it, he says i should have used a pillow, as this would have distributed the weight more !!! It was H's first review at school yesterday, so OH and i went along and he seems to be doing alright, which is good news and early days !!!

Well todays card was not supposed to be a CAS / Heart card, it should have been a Christmas one, but silly me forgot i only had 9 Valentines Cards to send to the troops and i like to send 10 and as they have to be sent very soon, i thought i had better get on with it - anyway it gave me a good excuse to use a very sweet but old (1998) PB stamp ( i was going to use it as a childs birthday card, but i think i prefer it as a Valentines card) and my new 'Heart Circles' from Spellbinders, that i embossed onto card and then cut out a template and distressed the outside circle,  i have also covered the balloons in glossy accents, but not sure if it shows up in photo.
