Celebrate Fifty

On Friday, I had to take my best friend for a surgical procedure so it was a crazy day.  Yesterday it was in the 40s here after we had it so cold, so that the 7 inches of snow that we got last week melted.  Now today we are expecting to have freezing rain...we can't win with this weird weather.  So I have been in a strange mood...so I decided to make a birthday card for my -ex husband who is EXACTLY 6 months older than me.  He is paranoid about aging so it is a revenge since I can point out his age, hehe.  I am mean...and it isn't a full moon.  I think age is only a number and you are only as old as you feel.  As a nurse we would refer to people being "old" for their age or "young" for their age and I totally agree.
For my card, I used a sentiment from TLC, Create.  I put three snowflakes on it with some twine, and kept it simple.
